Created in 2000, TMW designs and develops innovative treatment solutions for industrial effluents and sea water desalination. TMW has already taken its first steps on the international market and aims at becoming a front-line player in the water treatment sector.
A UNIQUE TECHNOLOGY INSPIRED BY THE NATURAL WATER CYCLE
Faced with global demographic growth and the hydric stress resulting from climate change, the rational use of water is one of the major challenges of the 21st century.
The result of 10 years of Research & Development, the technology designed by TMW is inspired by the natural water cycle. It purifies water by concentrating pollutant matter within a restricted volume. This patented technique, known as “multi-stage humidification – dehumidification”, consists in atmospheric pressure evaporation at low temperature (less than 100°C).
Initially developed for sea water desalination, this technology is today widely used to treat industrial wastewater. It can be adapted to all pre-existing industrial water circuits and can function continuously with very little maintenance.
MAKING INDUSTRY MORE COMPETITIVE
Thanks to TMW’s technology, industry players have an opportunity to concentrate their effluents on site and drastically reduce the residual quantities to be treated. The net saving achieved can reach 50% of annual wastewater treatment costs.
Furthermore, TMW modules are examples of energy efficiency. They can capture any surplus heat source on the client’s site and recover the thermal energy produced during evapo-concentration to meet their own energy needs. In addition to being energy efficient, they produce very good quality water (demineralized) which can be reused directly.
AN ESSENTIAL SERVICE OFFER ONFOR A LARGELY UNTAPPED MARKET
TMW products have been designed in order to be easily integrated into existing industrial processes. Consisting in units treating effluents from 400 m3 /year, their modularity and their ease of use make them particularly adapted to small and medium sized sites.
TMW’s service offer includes equipment installation, monitoring and maintenance. This integrated service offer allows clients to reduce treatment costs immediately without affecting their investment capacity.
