Full Recovery Desalination



A Revolutionary Approach to Fresh Water Production

Enviro Water Minerals Company’s (EWM) Full Recovery Desalination is a revolutionary and environmentally friendly approach to fresh water production. Full Recovery Desalination extracts the dissolved solids contained in a variety of water sources for beneficial use, leaving potable water for municipal and other uses. Utilizing proven, commercially available technologies in unique and innovative configurations, EWM chemically separates the contaminants into high-purity, industrial-grade mineral products for use in commercial markets.

Full Recovery Desalination is directly applicable to a variety of water sources, including:

  • Brackish Water Desalination
  • Seawater Desalination
  • Waste Water Brine Disposal
  • Industrial Water(e.g. power plant cooling tower water blowdown)
  • Oilfield Produced/Flowback Water
  • Agricultural Runoff

EWM currently has 12 process patents in various stages of prosecution (some issued and others pending), and routinely files additional patents as it continues to innovate.

Technology Overview



EWM’s Full Recovery Desalination technology recovers minerals and desalinated water using unique integrations of the following technologies:


  • Modern brine treatment processes: stripping, electrodialysis, reverse osmosis, nanofiltration, ion exchange, biological selenium removal

  • Modern mineral recovery processes: mechanical vapor recompression crystallizers, vacuum crystallizers, hydrometallurgical leaching

  • High efficiency combined heat and power natural gas engines
