Fraunhofer ISE Info Text:

SolarSpring GmbH, based in Freiburg, Germany, was founded in February 2009 as a spin-off company of the Fraunhofer ISE. In arid and semi-arid regions the lack of drinkable water often corresponds with a high solar insolation. This favours the use of solar energy as the driving force for water treatment systems. The main scope of the company is the development, construction, production and distribution of solar powered water treatment systems and particular membrane distillation and reverse osmosis systems for desalination, membrane filtration systems for purification and disinfections systems. However, the overall objectives are decentralized autonomous systems for remote areas; the supply of water to decentralized areas from water sources like seawater, salty (brackish) well-water, contaminated or dirty surface water (rivers, lakes, wells). Beside SolarSpring is active in non-solar driven water treatment with membrane distillation and ultrafiltration, industrial process water treatment and supply with either high purity water or higher concentrated solutions.
