IES has developed a technology for the profitable extraction of minerals from seawater

German research company IES develops cost-effective desalination technology and extraction of useful minerals from sea water without negative impact on the environment.

The main goal of the invented method is the formation of an inexhaustible source of drinking water for people, which will also help solve storage problems around the world. In addition, the developed technology ensures the complete processing of brine, which is a by-product with a high concentration of salts emitted from desalination plants..

This process allows the extraction of many valuable minerals from seawater, such as potassium and magnesium, as well as other elements and chemical compounds, which can later be used in industry and agriculture. In addition to high efficiency, the technique is environmentally friendly and does not have a detrimental effect on the environment..

According to Dr. Martin Padisak, CEO of IES, despite numerous studies conducted over the years by renowned organizations around the world, no cost-effective solution has yet been found. solutions for separation of seawater components and parallel processing of concentrated brine.

The company expects that their development will help shape the offshore industry, increasing its profitability. The head of the IES also says that technology is of great importance for the future colonization of planets like Earth. Researchers have not yet revealed details new desalination techniques, but they say that it has proven its effectiveness and is already patented.

Seawater can now also effectively to obtain hydrogen fuel, thanks to the recent improving the technology of its electrolysis.
