Dear Partners, respected Customers, SolarSpring GmbH was founded on February 3rd, 10 years ago. Four employees from the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems had the vision of making water available anywhere in the world. What we have achieved so far: Well over 250 membrane distillation modules built Systems installed in over 20 countries More […]
Operational analysis of a full-scale module – New strategies for wetting mitigation Abstract Membrane distillation (MD) is a thermal separation process which possesses a hydrophobic, microporous membrane as vapor space. A high potential application for MD is the concentration of hypersaline brines, such as e.g. reverse osmosis retentateor other saline effluents to be concentrated to a near saturation level with a Zero Liquid Discharge process chain. In […]
Dear Partners, respected Customers, from the 14th-18th of May, SolarSpring was at the international trade fair for environmental technologies IFAT in Munich. Needless to say, we made a lot of great new contacts and really enjoyed interacting with the crowd. We look forward to following up with all the new membrane distillation and ultrafiltration enthusiasts which we […]
Dear Partners, respected Customers, for several reasons, we are very lucky that our new Membrane Distillation Lab has a great view into nature. Reason one, we will be spending a lot of time here in the next months, testing new MD channel setups and feed solutions. Reason two, the “garden view” relaxes the mind and […]
Dear Partners, respected Customers, You have not heard from us in a long time? Apologies, but recent events have been keeping us very busy. SolarSpring moved to a great new and better venue, we have developed and entirely new product and have a brand new webpage….plus a trip to South Europe. More space, yet better […]
In January 2017, we installed our MDLab research unit at the Spanish CIEMAT-Plataforma Solar de Almería. The Plataforma Solar de Almería (PSA) is one of Europe’s leading research institutes in the field of solar technology research, development and testing.
SolarSpring ist stolzer Partner von Covestro bei dem “Re-Salt” Projekt. Das Projekt beschäftigt sich mit der Wiedergewinnung von Salz (NaCl), welches in industriellem Abwasser enthaltenen ist, und dessen Rückführung als Rohstoff in die Chlor-Alkali-Elektrolyse sowie der Weiterverwertung des anfallenden Wassers. Die Forschung im Rahmen des Re-Salt Projektes umfasst folgende Punkte: Entwicklung der Spurenstoffanalytik in stark […]
The SolarSpring GmbH Membrane Solutions team has moved offices! We’re now located at the “Freiburg Solarhaus” at Christaweg 40, 79114 Freiburg, Germany. This building is a pilot-project of the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE. It generates all required energy through the solar panels around its outside walls, and is therefore independent from external energy […]
