Radial Deionization™: Low Cost Produced Water DesalinationSource: Atlantis Technologies
Atlantis Technologies has developed a low cost produced water desalination system based on the patented Radial Deionizing super capacitor technology platform (RDITM). The RDI system evolved as a game changing technology from over $5,400,000 of funding by the US Government (DARPA & US Army TARDEC) and another $300,000 founder R&D investment. The patent protected RDI system is positioned to take significant market share from state-of-the-art technologies such as reverse osmosis and brine concentrators.
The RDI is the next generation capacitive deionization and is twice the speed, half the price, and 10 times the range of the previous generations of the technology. The founder and CEO, Patrick Curran, was a member of the original DARPA engineering team and is a world expert in the field with multiple issued and pending patents.
The RDITM system can deionize produced water from oil, gas, and mining operations for 40 – 70% less cost without cleaning chemicals with salt recoveries greater than 90%. This lower overall cost of operation is due to lower capital cost, maintenance, and operating expenses. In many cases, the RDI system can take the place of multiple unit operations such as reactive silica removal, hardness removal, and salt removal.
