ECRO membrane technology transforms membrane-based desalination from a passive affair to an active treatment process, where electrokinetic/electrochemical forces emanating from the membrane surface are used to prevent multiple forms of fouling, including scaling, while maintaining stable flux and salt rejection. In this project, we will develop prototype ECRO modules for field testing at a pilot scale. These modules will have the same spiral wound form-factor currently used by nearly all RO desalination plants. These membranes will boost the recovery of primary RO and/or further concentrate primary RO brine – cost effectively and sustainably, and without the need for external chemicals.
