Brackish Water Reverse Osmosis (BWRO)

Challenged by the lack of water created by the increase in production, a leading brewery had to look for alternative solutions to produce additional RO water from their brackish water well. Adding additional wells or increased pumping capacity from the existing well was very expensive, while brine disposal was an additional challenge. 

PRODUCT:  RO-RT (Reverse Flow Patented Technology)
LOCATION: Huiquan, Fujian, China

Retrofit existing RO to a two stage 6:2 configuration
(every 2 PV’s, 25% of time as 2nd stage)


  • Increase of Permeate by 20% from 75% to 88%-92%

  • Reduced Brine production by 62%-68%

  • Reduced anti-scalant use by 25%-50% (when compared to similar permeate)

  • Reduced CIP frequency

160 Rooms - No Water Service Area

Hotel expansion requirements, coupled with space limitations and an initial lack of any centralized collection system or wastewater treatment infrastructure, required a two-stage solution. Using our initial WWTF from phase I, upgrade existing infrastructure without requiring an increase in tankage volumes. 

CLIENT: Comfort Inn Hotel
LOCATION: El Salvador

Centralized WWTF on a localized base with complete reuse of byproducts


  • Viability for project development in the required area

  • Eliminated negative environmental impact

  • No noise or smell with a fully integrated solution

  • Localized reuse of water and sludge for gardening purposes

Domestic wastewater Treatment
2000 - House Development

Due to the lack of a proper collection system and inadequate wastewater treatment infrastructure, large-scale limitations have been created for the further development of residentially-zoned land. Septic tanks do not provide a viable solution due to local regulations and increased cost. 

LOCATION: El Salvador

Centralized WWTF on a localized base with sludge as fertilizer


  • Reduced developers cost for wastewater disposal solution

  • Eliminated negative environmental impact

  • Hassle free solution for homeowners and developer

  • Reuse of water and sludge

Brackish water desalination
Desalination For Domestic Use - Water Port

Challenged by the lack of fresh water, a new cargo ship port had to look for alternative ways to produce potable water for both domestic and commercial use. Simply extending the service area to meet the needs of the port would have been costly and inefficient. 

PRODUCT:  RO (Reverse Osmosis)
CLIENT: TOA - JBIC, Cutuco Port
LOCATION: El Salvador

Deep well extraction of brackish water with RO desalination including holding tanks


  • Reduced client's cost for investment in potable water access

  • Reduced disturbance to population due to limited expansion of existing service area

  • Self sufficiency with higher water quality

  • Reduced on-going water cost

Industrial wastewater treatment
Instant Coffee Manufacturing Facility

New legislation required our client to pay additional costs, based on how they disposed of untreated effluent. This created a substantial economic burden on the manufacturing facility, requiring the client to look for a more cost-effective solution.

PRODUCT:  FES (Field Erected Solution)
CLIENT: Nestle
LOCATION: Nicaragua

On-site WWTF to comply with loading requirements for domestic level disposal


  • Reduced client's cost for wastewater disposal solution

  • Payback of less than 5 years

  • Fast execution time, with long life expectancy

  • Dry sludge used for energy production due to high calorific value

Potable Water Treatment Facility - River

Lacking enough potable water, a rural community had to look for alternative solutions to provide for their needs. Unconditioned, single-family well water often resulted in individuals contracting waterborne diseases.

Building and improving existing infrastructure to provide more potable water would have been both complicated and costly. 

CLIENT: Inter American Development Bank (IDB), La Dalia
LOCATION: Nicaragua

On-site PWTF to comply to international WHO standards


  • Reduced client's cost for delivery of potable water to the community

  • Eliminated waterborne diseases originating from contaminated water

  • Pressure sustained, reducing OPEX to a minimum for long-term stability

  • Continuous analysis and accountability to assure high quality water to population

Lime-Based Softener

Challenged by the lack of adequate water, a new international jeans manufacturing facility had to look for alternative solutions to produce soft water for their industrial use. Washing the clothing with IE softened water was not a possible solution as it would have damaged the fabric. 

CLIENT: Cone Denim Jeans
LOCATION: Nicaragua

On-site WTF using deep well water to comply with soft water requirements


  • Complete self-sufficiency of high quality water

  • Pressure sustaining vessels for reduced OPEX

  • Reduced cost of required infrastructure to deliver city water to industry

  • Environmentally friendly due to an elimination of brine disposal in common regeneration of IE
