KWT’s X-VAP Solar Thermal Desalination System
October 2, 2021 - January 15, 2022
We are transitioning our patented thermal distillation system from natural gas powered to solar power. We will show attendees how we can purify salt water and heavily contaminated industrial wastewater to fresh water quality using only solar power. This system is suitable for remote off-grid applications. The natural gas system was paid for with NSF SBIR funding. The transition to our solar power is being paid for by DOE Solar Desalination prize funding and USAF SBIR funding. This system will eventually compete with and replace energy intensive reverse osmosis system and can handle higher levels of contaminates compared to reverse osmosis. We believe our system is the most efficient uses of solar thermal energy possible as there are no energy conversion losses and our patented recapture systems make it the most efficient thermal distillation system in the world. Attendees will witness the future in water purification as our process is carbon neutral to run and is cheaper than traditional waste water disposal options.
