Desalination

GE’s Seawater Reverse Osmosis technologies (SeaPRO, SeaPRO-E, SeaTECH, and SeaSMART) are used to remove salt and other dissolved impurities from water through the use of a semi-permeable membrane. Municipalities and industrial facilities use seawater reverse osmosis to make a consistently pure drinking water supply or as a first step in transforming it to high purity water for industrial use. Compared to thermal desalination, GE’s Seawater Reverse Osmosis technologies can reduce electricity costs and associated CO2 emissions on the power grid.
