Some desalination systems use a lot of electricity. This can increase the cost of water and the carbon footprint which results in environmental damage. Concentrated salt from desalination can also cause environmental damage. GELF approached desalination to achieve a zero environmental impact solution. Our system generates its own electricity to distill water and then degrades the brine by transforming it into electricity. There are two components of the system. the distillation and brine degradation. The brine degradation system operates independently from the distillation process and can been designed to retrofit existing desalination systems. By using this system, the ocean is protected from acidification because there is no carbon footprint. It also protects the ocean from concentrated salts accumulating over time which could result in dead zones. Many Desalination projects are planned and some are in process along the California Coast. This innovative "Zero Energy / Zero Discharge" desalination system will protect our oceans for future generations while lowering the cost of desalinated water.
