Aquafortus develops and holds multiple patents on non-thermal, continuous and re-generable ZLD technology. The Aquafortus ABX™ system is a novel liquid-to-liquid crystallizer that promotes the formation of salt crystals via a proprietary direct contact crystallization process using Aquafortus’ patented solutions. The ABX™ system efficiently reduces high TDS brines to salt and produces only clean water.
The Aquafortus ABX™ system works by a two-stage solvent exchange process with the patented “Absorbent” acting as a transfer medium for water. When wastewater brine contacts the absorbent, salts from the wastewater brine instantly crystallize. The “Regenerant” then regenerates the absorbent for continuous reuse in the system.
The Aquafortus ABX™ system will dramatically impact the economics of zero liquid discharge and promote its wider adoption.
