Wastewater trial at vertical farm

Our next generation high efficiency reverse osmosis technology provides industry leading concentration rates with unparalleled energy efficiency, all with a highly compact footprint. We have created a manufacturing partnership with Salinity Solutions and cannot wait to show you the progress so far.

Unlike conventional reverse osmosis, our proprietary SAM50 system can achieve a higher recovery within a smaller footprint by recirculating the feedwater around the membrane.​ The patented pressure exchange process dramatically reduces the average pressure in the system and therefore the energy consumption.

Working with our partner, Salinity Solutions, Te-Tech can offer scalable, modular systems to cater for a wide range of treatment needs, volumes and pressures. 

Salinity Solutions teamed up with indoor salad producer GrowUp Farms in Sandwich, Kent, for a 10 -day trial. Wastewater from the growing process, as well as elsewhere on the site, was collected and re-circulated twice, using a unique pressure system. Te-Tech Process Solutions manufactured and delivered the SAM50-25.

Liam Burlace from Salinity Solutions said: “The aim here is to treat water better, so we want to extract as much fresh water as possible, whilst minimising the energy consumption of the system.”
