Energy Recovery, DuPont partner for webinar on minimal liquid discharge systems

March 1, 2021

Energy Recovery recently announced a partnership with DuPont Water Solutions to offer advanced solutions improving the efficiency of many industrial wastewater treatment systems.

The companies will co-host a webinar on Wednesday, March 10, at 10 a.m. eastern time, to discuss the benefits of pairing Energy Recovery Ultra PX energy recovery devices (“ERD”) with DuPont membranes in industrial wastewater treatment systems. 

The webinar, titled “FilmTec™ Fortilife™ membranes matched with Energy Recovery Ultra PX™ provide breakthrough in Minimal Liquid Discharge affordability,” will feature presentations from Energy Recovery and DuPont experts, who will provide an overview of how their technologies will provide a solution to technical challenges associated with Minimal Liquid Discharge (“MLD”) Ultra High-Pressure Reverse Osmosis (“UHPRO”) operations, generating significant energy and cost savings.

Presenters will include Eric Kadaj, senior director for Business and Applications Development from Energy Recovery, and Tina Arrowood, principal research scientist from DuPont Water Solutions.

“This collaboration with DuPont demonstrates the incredible capabilities of our Ultra PX ERD. We believe that our new technology has the potential to transform UHPRO industrial wastewater treatment in the same way our PX® Pressure Exchanger® ERD transformed seawater reverse osmosis desalination,” said Rodney Clemente, Energy Recovery’s senior vice president of water. “Together with DuPont’s leading membrane technologies, our Ultra PX can enable industrial wastewater treatment facilities to maintain high performance and reliability while reducing waste, energy use, and cost.”

DuPont’s FilmTec Fortilife product family is designed for facilities that would benefit from durable, robust membranes and a reliable, industry-leading nanofiltration and reverse osmosis water treatment that is effective and easy to clean.

“Our FilmTec Fortilife offerings are focused on meeting facilities’ unique industrial water treatment challenges,” said Verónica Garcia Molina, global marketing manager of DuPont Water Solutions. “Alongside Energy Recovery’s Ultra PX, we are confident we are bringing a high-value and efficient solution for industrial wastewater treatment to the market.”
