Project Overview

Climate change and global urbanization leads to increased pressure on energy and water resources. This has important implications for industrial production. In addition, population growth in Third World countries further underline the great
challenge facing us in terms of demand for energy and water in the coming decades.

New membrane processes can provide potential solutions to the dual-energy Water challenge. Although the use of osmotic or electrochemical gradients for energy production and purification has been known for several years, the lack of research and development prevented industrial applications of membranes for energy production and energy-efficient water treatment. Sustainable energy and increased water efficiency are key competitive factors for Danish industry and the Worldwide market for technology solutions that can increase energy and water efficiency in industrial production is enormous. In this project we will develop and integrate tools, skills and technology solutions for the optimal use of energy and Water resources based on new membrane technology.

We are two Danish universities, two water treatment companies, a technological service institute and two foreign university groups with world-class expertise. This will ensure Danish technology suppliers and consultants with a strong national and international research and development platform for global sustainable energy and water solutions.
