Energy Recovery, Inc.® today announced a set of contracts totaling over $9 million to supply its PX® Pressure Exchanger® energy recovery devices to desalination facilities in China, India, South Korea, and Indonesia. The orders are estimated to be fulfilled by the end of Q3 2023.
These contracts represent a mix of industrial and municipal applications and demonstrate the region’s continuing investment in desalination. China and India in particular remain strong areas of growth for desalination as industrialization, water scarcity, and urbanization increase the need for effective clean water strategies. Energy Recovery products help to produce over four million cubic meters per day of freshwater in Asia.
“Rapid development and industrialization are putting a strain on the already insufficient natural freshwater supply in many parts of Asia. Like most countries across the world, China, India, South Korea, and Indonesia have seen their per capita renewable freshwater resources plummet in recent decades,” said Rodney Clemente, Energy Recovery Senior Vice President of Water. “By significantly reducing the power intensity and environmental impact of water treatment processes, such as seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) desalination and industrial wastewater treatment, the PX makes clean water more accessible and sustainable around the world.”
Energy Recovery estimates that when these plants are completed, the PX will prevent nearly 170,000 tons of carbon emissions from entering the atmosphere each year, which is equivalent to removing more than 36,000 passenger cars from the road.
