Danfoss helps set new world record in SWRO energy efficiency

When Spain’s DESAL+ LIVING LAB announced a new world record for SWRO energy efficiency this May, Danfoss high-pressure pumps were at the heart of the innovative solution. The breakthrough could have significant consequences for a thirsty world facing the combined threats of water scarcity and climate change.Desalination is an increasingly critical source of drinking water for millions of people worldwide. But while seawater is abundant and “free of charge,” the electrical energy required by the seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) process that drives most plants comes at financial and environmental costs. Now, researchers in Spain have shown the way to record-breaking SWRO energy efficiency – all made possible by Danfoss APP high-pressure pumps.
