Installations for desalination of water by the reverse osmosis method will begin to be produced in Russia in order to solve the problem of water shortage in the southern regions, including in the Crimea.
This was reported by the press service of the state corporation Rostec.
“The southern regions of Russia are regularly faced with drought, shallowing of reservoirs and, as a result, limited water supply. Our development is designed to solve the problem of a shortage of fresh water. It can be used for desalination of water in almost any sea, regardless of its composition and salt content,” the executive said. director of the corporation Oleg Yevtushenko. – There is great potential for the use of such installations, for example, in the Crimea, abroad – in the countries of South Africa and the Persian Gulf. “
Serial production will be launched by the Rostec Shvabe holding. A system capable of purifying water with high concentrations of salts, oil impurities and other suspensions will be significantly cheaper than analogues, the company promised, noting that this method of water purification is one of the most effective.
“Pressurized water passes through a special synthetic membrane, where up to 99% of mineral salts are retained. The technology significantly surpasses other methods in speed and efficiency,” the company’s press service explained.
Earlier, a project for desalination of seawater in Crimea was already proposed by scientists from Sevastopol State University, proposing to build a network of desalination stations that would operate on wind energy.
