Hyflux’s membrane-based desalination solutions are helping fast-growing cities and industries in water-scarce regions throughout the world to meet their water needs and develop a stable, sustainable water supply for the future.

Our desalination projects range from small plants for power stations to large-scale ones like the 500,000 m3/day Magtaa Desalination Plant in Algeria that will supply clean water to support the country’s rapid urbanisation. Magtaa Desalination Plant is currently the largest desalination plant in the world using reverse osmosis membrane technology. We design, engineer, operate and maintain plants and may also arrange a comprehensive financing plan to fund large-scale projects

Hyflux also has a range of pre-engineered, modular Standard Membrane Systems integrated with our proprietary Kristal? ultrafiltration technology to provide industries and communities facing water shortages and water usage restrictions with a reliable, high quality supply of water in a simple, quick and cost-effective way.

How desalination works?

Desalination is the process of removing salt and other minerals from water to make it suitable for drinking or for industrial use. In water-stressed areas, desalination can be a sustainable solution that eliminates the need to transport water over long distances. Membrane-based desalination uses semi-permeable reverse osmosis membranes and pressure to separate salts from water. Reverse osmosis technology uses less energy than thermal distillation, and technology enhancements have led to a reduction in overall desalination costs over the last decade.
