Water is the new oil. Worldwide demand is ever increasing – not just because of an increasing population – but also because it is an integral component used in producing nearly every product we consume or use in our daily lives. Industrial applications require a water quality beyond even our drinking water, so it must be purified before going into our food and beverage, pharmaceuticals or cosmetics, or before it’s used to produce our electric power, gasoline, cars, paper and textiles, plastic, metal, or even the microprocessors used in our favorite devices.

Our customers include many Fortune 500 companies such as Coca Cola, Procter & Gamble, Microsoft, Southern California Edison, and Kimberly Clark to boost their financial, environmental, and operational competitiveness; creating a paradigm shift in water efficiency and reliability.

Desalitech is an enterprise tech startup, with the advantage of being the only disrupting player in a gigantic and hugely important market sector.
