Producing complete germ-free drinking water from water sources such as rivers or pools
AWT has reached the conclusion that in order to popularize seawater desalination plants, it is mandatory to incorporate environment-friendly energy-saving systems into water treatment plants.

Power consumption per 1 m3 when
compared with conventional systems

By using a new energy recovery system which reuses drainage pressure,
we have been able to reduce power consumption by as much as 60% compared with conventional systems
with no energy-saving system incorporated.
