These PX devices are expected to prevent over 400,000 metric tons of carbon emissions from entering the atmosphere each year, the equivalent of removing over 85,000 passenger cars from the road each year.

The Energy Recovery contracts include a municipal desalination facility that will produce over 500,000 cubic meters per day (132 million gallons) to a significantly water stressed region.

The facilities are for both municipal and industrial applications and the orders are expected to be fulfilled by Q4 2023.

The PX can reduce energy consumption in SWRO desalination by as much as 60%.
