National University of Singapore to Develop Desalination Technology with Global Partners

Desalination technology developed by the National University of Singapore (NUS) has drawn interest from large desalination plant operators in the Middle East and China.The university on Wednesday signed an agreement with local tech start-up Medad Technologies to further develop and commercialise the technology.

This took place on the side-lines of the Asia Future Energy Forum at Marina Bay Sands. The forum is one of several being held this week as part of the Singapore International Energy Week, which ends today.The university’s method uses waste heat as its primary energy source, making it more energy efficient than reverse osmosis, the system most commonly used in desalination plants around the world.
