Cost / Benefits of SWRO for Drinking Water
The reverse osmosis system, after years of new research and testing and development, has improved. The overall reduction in capital and operating costs continues to be seen as new process optimization is implemented.
RO systems have lower cost than thermal systems because they do not require the use of thermal power over their electricity consumption.
Lower costs are not the only benefit of SWRO treatment. As mentioned at the beginning of this article, irrigation adds another source for drinking water in areas where water is scarce. There is also the fact that the amount of process intake is not hindered in the wake of drought. In addition, RO systems are modular so they are easy to implement and do not require large areas for operation.
Therefore, SWRO treatment is particularly useful for both drinkable and non-drinkable applications in arid climates. This seawater system (SWRO) is also useful for coastal communities and islands and places with low annual rainfall.
