AQUA.ABIB
International Patent pending(National phases). Spanish patent granted.

Design, manufacturing and marketing of desalination seawater plants and/or the tratement of wasetewaters with purines, using solar power. It is an innovation technology for the use of the solar energy power, efective separation of the solutes from the water and optimizing of the performance.

TECHNOLOGY DESCRIPTION

Seawater desalination plant and/or wastewater treatment plants powered by solar energy.

The plant has a pyramidal shape that allows to separate the solutes from the water that prevent human consumtion or other uses. The water desalination plant powered by solar energy (Of sea water, brines or waste water ) using a carp that works catching the irradiation and also, with a condensing column based on calories and frigories available in the underground. Monitoring by computer the variables of the system using a informatic program that capture the values and searech the optimal performance of the system.

BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY

- Deslinitation: The technology used in the desalination can be divided in destilation (Multi Effect Distillation i Multi Stage Flash), in systems of reparation for membranes between which there are inverse osmosis or renovable energies in development phase, such as Dutch Pyramid, SWGH i Aqua.abib.

- Slurry treatment : the technologys are earehouse and mechanical separation, plant of treatment with biogas generation and thermal drying.

Co-development. The EBT was constituted as spin off of the UPC University: Aqua Abib (www.aqua-abib.com).

APPLICATION

Designing a low cost system off energy with high efficiency capable of treating contaminated water and/or with high in solutes to obtain water for human consumtion or reuse in agriculture. All they minimazing or removing the rests generated in the process.

At the first stage, it has been considered that the technolgy has to be positioned in the following target markets :

- Desalination of water . Turistic plants, small urban core.Geographyc context : Chinese, India, Persian Gulf countries, Canarias, Chile...

-Slurry tratment : Farms like : multiplication, production, closed cylce and mixt product.

Advanced manufacturing

Some sub-sectors in the field of "Chemistry, Energy and Natural Resources".

STATE OF MATURITY
Research
Development
Exploitation

The technology is in process of construction of the pilot plant.

STATE OF INTELLECTUAL AND INDUSTRIAL PROPERTY
