GS E&C agrees to an MOU on desalination technologyGS Engineering and Construction, the nation’s sixth-largest builder, said yesterday it signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the U.S. company Energy Recovery Inc. (ERI) to cooperate in the development of desalination technology.
The affiliate of GS Group said the MOU will help the company develop an energy recovery system, which is a core part of a desalination plant, using pressure retarded osmosis (PRO) technology. The technology is known to use up to 20 percent less electricity than current seawater reverse osmosis desalination technology.
GS E&C said electricity costs account for 40 percent of the desalination process.
The company said that the MOU will create synergy with its affiliate GS Inima, a Spain-based company, which uses a technology of energy recovery from brine by forward osmosis.
