A world leader in water treatment solutions, IDE specializes in the development, engineering, construction and operation of enhanced desalination and industrial water treatment plants.
Leading The Water Industry
IDE leads the water industry with some of the world’s most advanced thermal and membrane desalination plants. We provide small to large cost-effective desalination solutions, such as IDE PROGREENTM, a modular, chemical-free reverse osmosis ‘plant in a box’.
We have an especially well-proven track record in large-scale membrane and thermal desalination, including some of the largest plants worldwide, (e.g. in China, India, US, Australia and Israel).
IDE has proven experience in ground-breaking industrial water treatment plants that deliver a reliable, sustainable and economical solution across all industries.
Developing Solutions For Tomorrow
IDE has been developing a growing portfolio of economic, green water treatment solutions for municipalities and industrial needs – especially in the areas of desalination, industrial water and wastewater treatment. In creating customized, end-to-end solutions for its customers, IDE leverages its proprietary technologies and skills in project management, operations, support and financing, all built through close to 50 years of leadership in the water industry.
Partnering For Success
Our track record spans over 400 plants in 40 countries across more than 4 decades. IDE works in partnership with a wide range of customers – municipalities, oil & gas, mining, refineries and power stations – on all aspects of water projects, and delivers approximately 3 million m3/day of high quality water worldwide. Each project and customer has its unique requirements and challenges that IDE strives to meet.
We listen first so we can create the best solutions for our clients’ needs. We then bring technological leadership, proven reliability and consistent delivery to our customers across all industries. Our highly experienced and dedicated teams know that a strong partnership leads to success and growth.
IDE is jointly owned by the ALFA Water Partner groups.
Utilizing Available Coldness from Liquefied Natural Gas LNG Regasification Process for Seawater Desalination
In this article a case study was considered, in which an LNG regasification plant can supply 1750 ton/hr of water-glycol solution at -15°C to be utilized for seawater desalination. The main challenge in this evaluation is being able to provide a desalination solution able to compete with the commonly used RO plants.
Recovery of Osmotic Power in SWRO Plants
The paper analyzes the ways that different researchers have selected to overcome the phenomenon of CP, and presents an overview of the existing RO membranes from the point of view of their suitability for use in Forward Osmosis power generation.
Design Challenges and Operational Experience of a Mega MED Seawater Desalination Plant in Tianjin
This article is a continuation of the article "Sliding Pressure Turbine Integrated with Seawater Desalination Facility (MED)" presented at the IDA 2011 World Congress.
Three Pressure Retarded Osmosis PRO Processes
Pressure retarded osmosis (PRO) can be implemented on a number of water types, using different technologies and achieving various power outcomes. This paper presents the three most practical options.
Steam Driven Large Multi Effect MVC (SD MVC) Desalination Process for Lower Energy Consumption and Desalination Costs
This paper will also describe the thermodynamic advantages, the specific investment and desalination costs comparison, and the resulting desalination cost reduction potential of the steam-driven multi effect MVC process.
Three Center Design Implemented in Ashkelon SWRO Plant
This paper presents the three center design implemented in the South Israel (Ashkelon) seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) desalination facility with guaranteed production capability of 100 Mm3 /year. The facility design is based on the concept of a Three-Center Design: a pumping center, a membrane center and an energy recovery center.
