Nanobubbles in Desalination

Nanobubbles can help drive ESG initiatives by reducing energy usage, extending the life of assets, and eliminating chemicals in the process stream.

  • Nanobubbles have been demonstrated to be more effective at mitigating scale buildup than chemical based antiscalants.

  • By reducing membrane scale & biofilm buildup, RO systems can go longer between maintenance cycles and potentially extend the service life of the membrane.

  • Reduced membrane scale & biofouling reduces operational energy demand. 

  • Nanobubbles reduce the surface tension of water, which translates to further reduced RO operational energy demand.

  • Treating brine discharge with nanobubbles helps to reduce some of the concentrated toxic elements commonly found in brine.

  • Oxygen nanobubbles can be used to cost effectively restore dissolved oxygen content of RO water to healthy levels.

Key benefits:


Increased Efficiency

The high surface area to volume ratio of nanobubbles increases their efficiency in scrubbing water and removing impurities, making them a promising technology for desalination. This increased efficiency can lead to higher throughput and reduced energy consumption, making the desalination process more sustainable and less energy intensive.

Lower Energy Requirements

As the nanobubbles effectively scrub RO membranes and remove the biofouling, this increases the efficiency of the process, resulting in reduced energy consumption. This makes the use of nanobubbles an attractive option for areas where energy resources are limited, or where the cost of energy is high for desalination.


Reduced Chemical Use

Some desalination processes require the use of chemicals to treat the water and remove impurities or prevent scale buildup. However, the use of nanobubbles with ozone gas can reduce or eliminate the need for these chemicals treatments, making the process more environmentally friendly while producing a better quality water.

Better Water Quality

Having better oxygen levels in water from desalination plants is beneficial for downstream applications and industries in many ways. Water with higher oxygen levels is more suitable for use in agriculture, aquaculture, and green space maintenance and can help reduce water utilization by these industries.
