Membrane distillation is a desalination process where the driving force is the vapor pressure gradient generated on both sides of a membrane. This allows to separate volatile matter from non-volatile matter, obtaining a high quality water.
It is a process that has a great number of advantages:
- 100% rejection of solids and non-volatile matter.
- Reduced investment cost thanks to the materials used for filtration.
- Reduced operating costs thanks to the application of renewable energies to the process.
- Versatile due to the possibility to be used for a high range of applications.
