EWM’s processes are designed to separate salty waters into clean water and beneficial minerals without creating any waste.

This patented process, which EWM has termed Full Recovery Desalination®, is different from traditional desalination techniques, which create waste and result in more expensive water. The water created by EWM’s processes is affordable because the sale of recovered minerals as commodities subsidizes the cost of desalination.

With increasing water demand, we believe EWM’s environmentally friendly technology is poised for growth. EWM’s technology is applicable globally to seawater desalination, brackish water desalination, produced water, lithium containing brines, mining tailings, agricultural runoff, and other industrial water sources containing salt and minerals.

"Any form of desalination should not only produce clean water, but also monetize the minerals from the water. This not only maximizes profits but supports the circular economy by using the entire resource with no waste."
– Paul Wallace
Co-founder & CTO


According to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, approximately 96.5% of the world’s water supply is saltwater and is unsuitable for agricultural, municipal, or industrial purposes in its existing form. Further limiting the water supply is the fact that approximately 70% of freshwater is inaccessible as glaciers and permanent snow cover. Although the global population is growing, the supply of freshwater has not kept pace, exasperating the water scarcity issue.

Globally, desalination has emerged as a breakthrough technology that allows new sources of freshwater to be created by extracting it from seawater and brackish water. However, the cost, significant power consumption, and environmental concerns are key barriers that slow and sometimes prevent adoption of desalination. EWM’s Full Recovery Desalination® technology is designed to overcome these hurdles by integrating minerals recovery to subsidize the cost, more efficiently utilizing power, and eliminating environmental concerns associated with disposal.


EWM’s technology provides desalination that addresses the growing need without some of the issues encountered by traditional desalination.

Concerns relating to traditional desalination include the cost of the water produced, the energy footprint, and the waste generated by the process. EWM’s process is designed to solve these problems. By removing all the minerals from the water and using them in saleable products, the cost of the water produced is significantly reduced – making it affordable. EWM also added renewable energy to be used with its desalination process. The process also results in no waste.

EWM has been granted over 10 U.S. patents and a patent in over 10 other countries. EWM also has additional applications pending in the U.S. and in some countries outside the U.S. and continues to invent new process technology on a continuous basis.

Business Model

EWM is a technology company. It plans to assist in designing a plant based on the EWM technology and license its technology to the plant. EWM’s revenue is planned to come from both consulting services and license fees.

EWM plans to assist in the feasibility, pilot, and design of a facility using EWM’s technology. At the design stage, EWM requires a license to be purchased. The license is to be an initial payment with ongoing royalties (similar to process technology licensing already done in other industries).

EWM’s expected customers include:

  • Governments (municipalities, international governments, etc.)
  • Industry (those needing clean water or creating wastewater) - including lithium/copper mining companies, hydrogen companies, energy companies, semiconductor companies, etc.
According to Global News Wire, Research and Markets has stated that the desalination market is projected to grow from US$19.29 Billion in 2021 to US$32.02 Billion by 2027.

Global consumption of water has increased over 500 billion m3 since 2010 and is continuing at this pace according to graphs shown by the World Research Simulation Center. The United Nations Environment Programme has said that “[s]eawater desalination can extend water supplies beyond what is available from the hydrological cycle, but innovation in brine management and disposal is required.”

We believe EWM’s technology is poised to address the global need. With a large market and the ability to make clean water more affordable with the sale of the minerals and to make the clean water without any waste, EWM sees this as a large opportunity to license its process technology to those needing clean water or sustainable minerals.

Success To Date

EWM’s Full Recovery Desalination® process has been through the following:

  • Engineering Studies – Large outside engineering firms were hired to validate EWM’s process.
  • Pilots – Two successful pilots have been conducted employing EWM’s process.
  • Feasibility studies – Feasibility studies have been performed on brackish water, seawater, and produced water.
  • Plants – A full-scale commercial plant for brackish water using EWM’s technology was built in El Paso, Texas. The plant was based on EWM’s process technology. The plant has had issues relating primarily to equipment provided by others and its commissioning has been delayed over multiple years. Due to this, the plant’s ownership has changed over the years. Work is still being done at the site toward a new operational plan.

EWM has recently (in 2023) signed three distribution agreements. One with a large multi-million dollar company that works with produced water in the Middle East/North Africa, one with a consulting company that works in Mexico, and one for the Philippines. These agreements have revenue targets that the partners must meet in order for the exclusivity to continue. EWM is hopeful to see revenue from these recent endeavors.

EWM also has recently been requested to submit its technology for a request for proposal for three large mining companies and also is in discussions about a potential project with a multi-billion dollar international conglomerate.

In sum, there is great interest for the use of EWM’s technology in various implementations and countries and, based on feedback from these companies, EWM does not know of any other entity that has a zero waste desalination technology.


EWM has been invited to speak on its technology over 20 times around the world, which gives it the potential to reach many sources. EWM is expected to speak next at the Texas Desal Annual 2023 Conference (September 2023 in El Paso).
