REFINERIES & PROCESSING

DRINKING WATER OUT OF WASTE HEAT

Refineries and processing industries produce massive amounts of heat. A lot of it has no use and is wasted. This energy could be turned into clean drinking water. And you would get extra cooling while doing it.

IT MAKES BOTH ECONOMIC AND CSR SENSE

Clean drinking water has tremendous value, both economically and politically. What can you do with water? Either you sell it at market price. Or use it internally for your staff or processes. Or donate it to local communities – creating massive goodwill for your company.

63,000 BBL RAW OIL PER DAY BECOMES 3 MILLION LITRES OF CLEAN WATER

The residual heat from processing 63,000 bbl of oil into refined petro products is enough to make 3 million litres of clean and sustainable water. You only need to put in 145 MWh of electricity. That’s it.

100% CLEAN AND SUSTAINABLE WATER

The water is distilled and absolutely clean. It comes from the atmosphere, a virtually non-depletable water resource. It is free of groundwater or seawater pollutants such as pesticides, harmful chemicals or hormones. No brine or other discharge is produced.
