Trunz Water Systems is industry partner to one of the H2020 projects supported/funded by the European Commission. The REvivED Water project is dedicated to further develop and integrate electrodialysis (ED) and its components as future technology to tackle the worldwide drinking water problems. The goal is to desalinate sea water more efficiently at lower energy consumption and less cleaning protocols - which finally leads to lower overall water costs and lower environmental footprint.

As part of the project, Trunz is leading a workpackage which covers the development, construction and operation of a pilot plant in Spain. The pilot integrates ED technology in combination with a conventional RO system as pre-desalination step in order to reduce energy costs and increase the systems total performance. A one year experimental phase will allow the evaluation of profound data for the further development of market-ready systems.

End of May, the Trunz team in collaboration with the REvivED Water consortium members and the local company FACSA commissioned the pilot plant and took the system into operation. During the General Assembly of REvivED Water project, a visit of the pilot plant demonstrated the successful implementation. The visit was accompanied by local authorities and two days later by a Spanish TV station who broadcasted a section about the project.
