We’ll help turn your wastewater into profit

In the circular economy, waste becomes an asset, and a source of profit. Wastewater has many opportunities for generating profits, most typically by replacing the need to buy water or energy. For example:

  • Wastewater is often quite warm. A heat exchanger can recover the heat for space heating, water heating, or manufacturing processes. This is free energy.
  • Often, it’s possible to recover resources from wastewater that can either be used internally or sold. For example, some wastewater solids are used as ingredients in fertilizer.
  • Or, the clean water can be re-used either for the same processes or re- purposed elsewhere.

Reduce your treatment costs and stay compliant.

Around the world, off-site wastewater treatment and hauling costs are increasing. It pays to do a cost comparison of on-site to off-site treatment and calculate payback periods. By comparing direct costs and adding in any of the benefits outlined previously, you may find on-site treatment to be an easy decision with a fast payback.

In some jurisdictions, treatment plants are becoming over-burdened. Companies may soon find they have no choice but to treat their own wastewater.

Simultaneously, many parts of the world are seeing increased regulation and government oversight of water issues and compliance will become more strictly enforced.

Commercial customers for Rainmaker Water-to-Water technology

We work in many sectors including oil and gas, beverage, mining, pharma, tourism and military to help organizations profit from their wastewater.

Our focus is on creating fresh water at the lowest possible cost per liter and reducing waste.

Benefits of Rainmaker Water-to-Water production.

  • Capable of treating feed water with high concentrations of pollutants or salt concentration near saturation point
  • 100% rejection of ions, macromolecules, colloids, biological cells and other non-volatile impurities
  • In most cases, simple removal of solids from the feed water is all that is necessary
  • Low operating hydrostatic pressures mean that the process can be performed at operating pressures generally near atmospheric pressure
  • Feed temperatures can be considerably lower than the boiling point of water
  • No brine disposal necessary; zero liquid waste is possible to significantly cut costs
  • More water production by volume of water input
  • No toxic anti-fouling chemicals are necessary; no chemical costs
  • Can produce drinking water for as little as 0.5¢ per liter
  • Choice of power options – with wind, solar or generator, no electricity grid is required
  • Wind and solar are environmentally and climate friendly with no carbon footprint
  • Compact size that is easy to locate and scale
  • Harvest water directly where it is needed for decentralized water production to reduce or eliminate water distribution costs
  • Minimal service and maintenance with estimated 20-year life
  • Proprietary software-based control module can be accessed remotely for updates, calibration as well as offsite troubleshooting

Trends and developments in water and wastewater management.

As many areas around the globe experience water shortages and other water crises, it seems inevitable that the water industry will face more regulation and government oversight.

This will lead to increases in water prices, which will provide additional stimulus for water re-use and conservation.

While many regions still enjoy inexpensive water, discharge rates are driving up utility bills. Most buildings pay for water twice – once for primary needs and again to discharge wastewater – so there’s strong motivation to treat water and re-use it.

Around the world, public water management systems are aging, becoming dilapidated and ineffective in dealing with increased volumes. Heavy storms often mean that municipal water systems aren’t capable of handling the surge which results in untreated sewage being discharged into rivers, lakes and the ocean. This becomes newsworthy and puts additional focus on water treatment requirements.

Reclaiming wastewater is a powerful way to reduce environmental impacts and relieve pressure on municipal infrastructure.

More efficient use of water will be seen as important as energy efficiency. Better monitoring and metering systems will encourage setting targets, measuring and reporting of efficiency improvements.

There has been a remarkable surge of investor interest in the water business. Consolidation and rearrangement of water industry asset ownership is on-going.
