NEREID Water SA by Swiss Dragons Management SA:
Water - the essential ingredient for life on this planet - is becoming an increasingly scarce resource.
Swiss Dragons aims to elevate human dignity by enabling access to essentials through new technologies such as Nereid’s supply of drinking water.
Please watch ICDO’s visit of Nereid’s pilot project NDS-01 organised by Swiss Dragons Management SA at SIG in the above film presentation.
Water is important to the process of economic development and maintenance of our ecosystems.
The world faces an unprecedented crisis in water resources, with profound implications for global food security and protection of human health.
Traditional desalination plants adversely im- pact the environment in two major aspects:
Energy costs: prohibitive cost of energy necessary for osmotic separation is a key drawback,
Marine environment: the brine’s high specific weight and the additional chemi- cals introduced in the pretreatment stage harm the marine ecosystem.
When fossil energy sources are used, they contribute to deteriorating climate change, which negatively affects the water cycle, thereby intensifying the original problem that desalination is intending to solve.
For desalination to remain a viable option in a world with a rapidly changing climate and increasing droughts, renewable energy sources must to be used for powering at least part of its requirements.
Desalination, once considered a costly ne- cessity to create usable water in remote desert regions or third world nations, is going mainstream in a big way.
Producing drinkable water from seawater, brackish water and other marginal sources isn’t a new idea, but it’s now getting to be a necessary one.
With growing populations demanding more clean water, and traditional sources plagued by overuse and under supply, desalination is no longer the water world’s poor stepchild.
Desalination is generally considered to be an expensive technology, especially when compared to conservation and water recycling programs.
However, there are a number of ways in which costs of traditional water sources may rise in the future:
Increasing demand for freshwater,
Decreasing supplies of freshwater,
Increasing costs of maintaining existing water supplies in a fresh state,
Alteration of existing pricing schedule to reflect true cost of water provision.
Thanks to improved technology, smart en- gineering and innovative financing, desali- nation plants are springing up everywhere.
Utilizing ground-breaking technology, it is the lowest cost desalination system of its kind. It is a very robust, efficient and environmentally friendly method for desalination, very simple to install, flexible and with low maintenance costs.
What makes Nereid unique?
The unique design of the condenser (patent pending) dramatically reduces the cost of the MEH-DC, which potentially is the most cost effective desalination system on the market.
The cost-savings breakthrough allows for the first time affordable solar-powered seawater desalination at industrial scale.
The MEH-DC is capable to crystallize salt from the brine out- put of traditional desalination plants to achieve zero liquid dis- charge.
NDS offers multiple benefits:
Major security: no high pressure,
Reliable and predictable performance,
Energy independent thanks to solar energy,
Lowest production capacity: 100[m3/day],
Largest production capacity: 1,000 [m3/day], or a multiple of it,
High quality desalinated water at the lowest production cost,
Operating costs are well controlled for the long term, safe from fossil fuel energy price volatility,
Omits salt brine returned to sea thanks to a unique crystallization system,
Also produces commercial grade salt crystal as a sellable by-product.
Restoration of arid or desert land on coast- al areas,
Water supply for irrigation farming,
Reducing groundwater overdraft,
Humanitarian aid projects.
Harness renewable energy to deliver high quality purified water worldwide,
Produce purified water in water-scarce or constrained regions for local consump- tion, agriculture or industry,
