SAN LEANDRO, Calif.—May 25, 2016 —Energy Recovery, Inc. (NASDAQ:ERII), the leader in pressure energy technology for industrial fluid flows, today announced several new awards for a total of $4.2 million to supply its technology for multiple desalination projects in the Asia Pacific region. All are expected to ship in 2016.

Energy Recovery will supply its devices, including its PXTM Pressure ExchangerTM, for multiple seawater reverse osmosis plants, which will collectively produce up to 200,000 cubic meters of water per day. Energy Recovery estimates its technology will reduce power consumption for the combined projects by 23 MW, saving over 200 GWh of energy per year. Due to the substantially reduced power requirements, approximately 120,000 metric tons of CO2 emissions can be saved per year when operating at full capacity.

Energy Recovery’s President and CEO Joel Gay stated, “These new wins confirm our commitment to vigilantly pursue and secure projects that expand our reach in desalination. Our team continues to deliver as we reinforce our dominant position as the industry’s leading energy recovery solutions provider. While Energy Recovery has recently expanded into new markets in upstream oil and gas and downstream gas processing, the water desalination market continues to be a core segment of the business. With significant new investments being made globally in the desalination industry, it is a market where we expect to see further growth and continued Energy Recovery leadership.”
