Using your energy.
Energy available? Get our efficient water maker.
We understand that water and energy are not always considered at the same time. If you already enjoy renewable energy or currently have an affordable energy solution in place, we can hook you up with an energy efficient desalination solution that’s easy to operate and maintain.
Especially for small-scale solutions, energy efficiency is often lacking. To avoid high electricity bills, our efficient reverse osmosis units operate around 2.2 kWh/m³ or 8.3 kWh/1,000 gallons energy consumption for seawater. Industry standard solutions can consume over 3x more energy.
The compact & user-friendly units are designed for corrosive environments and the energy recovery device is maintenance free. GSM monitoring is available for remote control and an automated fresh flush system is included.
Sizes start small and go up to large capacities. The units are available in different voltages, phases and frequencies to meet the local power supply.
The compact solutions can be designed for any requested water production. We can provide containerized units for plug and play installation, or integrate all separate components to your preference into the (existing) infrastructure.

Your energy case: Lanzarote.
Eco resort using efficient desalination.
”A special thanks to Elemental Water Makers who joined forces with Lanzarote Retreats to achieve their sustainability goals. The Dutch team made it possible for our eco-village to become independent on water. We are naturally powering the desalination unit by harnessing the wind & sun.
I hope Elemental Water Makers will continue to encourage the rest of the world to do the same.”
Reverse osmosis with low energy consumption, even at small-scale. Take a look how we ensure a minimum of maintenance and stress-free operation.
Example case: efficient desalination.
A private island enjoying guilt-free water.
The private island has a water demand of 9 m³/day due to landscaping and private use. The rain is not reliable and sufficient enough, leaving no alternative for desalination. Two options are available, which first appears to be an easy decision as the standard reverse osmosis solution is about 30% cheaper in purchase price.
Luckily, the energy efficiency is considered before making a decision. By choosing the 3x more efficient water maker offered by Elemental Water Makers, water savings of 55% are realised, equal to 112.000 $. Despite the 30% higher purchase price the payback is still less than 1 year, as energy generation on the island is expensive with 0.3 $/kWh.
The compact desalination solution allows the private island owner to enjoy high-quality water on-site, with stress-free operation & remote monitoring, whilst still saving 18 ton CO2 per year. This is a solution for future generations.
