NIOT explores new desalination technologies - Green Showcase @ GreenExpo
Featuring the best of green in Chennai
National Institute of Ocean Technology (NIOT) developed world’s first low temperature thermal desalination plant.
Established Low Temperature Thermal Desalination process as a low maintenance alternative to current desalination technology.
Addresses drinking water problems in India’s Ocean island territories and even offshore urban centres along the coastline.
Indigenous technology with low operational and maintenance issues and with long-term sustainability.
M.A Atmanand, Director, National Institute of Ocean Technology (NIOT)
LTTD technology was demonstrated using waste heat generated from the North Chennai Power Plant to produce fresh water.
