Mineral-rich irrigation from seawater

Desalination combined with micro-nutrient extraction

The world’s foods are consistently being depleted of minerals – mechanized farming, overuse of pesticides and nitrogen, increasing rainwater run-off, even the glyphosate mineral-chelating herbicides used with GMOs. But there are minerals in the sea, and desalination represents a significant opportunity in arid places; what if the two could be combined, to provide desalinated and mineral-rich water for irrigation?

Our unique discovery is the world’s first process that extracts the ionic micro nutrient mineral load from ocean water or concentrated salt-water brine while removing the salt for soil and plant safety.

The food in all nations has been depleted of naturally occurring minerals. Over-harvesting for the last 100 years of mechanized farming (effect-out of balance mineral extraction from soil), over use of nitrogen (effect-interruption of sub surface soil chemical decomposition), chemical pesticides (effect-bactericidal effect on soil organisms by neurotoxic chemicals, herbicides and fungicides) and now GMO and its glyphosate mineral-chelating herbicide (effect-making any minerals in the soil un available to unpatented plants growing in a GMO crop field).

The chart at left shows the depletion of minerals in food with these events and charts the increase of illness caused by mineral deficient food that is both chemically and genetically toxic and environmentally destructive.

The charts show how it is – and how it can be, with our technologies.

Desalination has a major drawback: the brine is regarded as waste and usually returned to the sea. Our design solves this problem: we extract the minerals from seawater in two integrated designs that provide a desalination array which processes the waste water from mineral extraction into fresh distilled water that can be used for drinking, wells or aquifer recharging.

Our advanced Passive Solar Distillery technology and Thermal Differential System Solar Distillery technology use the sun to heat water and fore evaporation, replicating how the earth makes clouds and rain.

By constructing a container to concentrate the vapour created by solar heating using the greenhouse effect, the first law of thermodynamics can be employed to condense the heated vapour on to a cool surface.

The glass in this system is the cool surface and water will condense, collect and drip into a collection line for storage or directly down into wells or the aquifer.

The modular design of the units allows for any size of array to be constructed by attaching module units end to end for any desired production of water for any location.
