DESAL+ Living Lab

DESAL+ LIVING LAB, the perfect ecosystem for ongoing innovation in desalination

Canary Islands

Canary islandsDesalinationLiving lab

DESAL+ LIVING LAB Platform has been created to become the ideal public-private ecosystem to continue advancing innovation in desalination from the Canary Islands.

It is a space open to research where tests, experimentation and demonstration can be carried out in order to enhance and mature the commercial potential of a technology, product and/or service linked to desalination.

DESAL+ LIVING LAB has its own research resources, field equipment, water analysis laboratories, and infrastructures for pilots with seawater, brine, renewable energies, desalination plants and plots (on-shore/off-shore), all for experimental and demonstrative use.

From the Canary Islands, it offers, with its available resources, the following opportunities for entities and companies that perform R&D&I in desalination:

  • Experimental areas (testbed land) with technical and logistical support for the installation and testing of prototypes and new devices focused on desalination, desalination by renewable energies and other related fields.
  • Technical support and consulting for the development, expansion and demonstration under real conditions of innovative solutions using the local open desalination infrastructure at all scales for R&D purposes.
  • Training activities, educational programs, knowledge transfer, etc. in desalination technologies and the use of renewable energies.

DESAL+ LIVING LAB has been officially running since 2017 and there are several number of R&D&I projects and services done or in progress, the main ones being:

DESAL+ Project: The project has the general objective of creating and consolidating a joint R&D&i platform in the Macaronesian region. The aim of this platform is to have an excellent, internationally recognised, research and infrastructure standards in the area of desalination, the water-energy nexus and the exclusive use of renewable energies.

EERES4WATER Project: The EERES4WATER project aims to optimize the energy management of the integral water cycle in addition to implement technological innovations and articulate common policies -at institutional, technical and social levels- to increase energy efficiency and the use of renewable sources in processes and resources related to the integral water cycle, through the involvement of the public administration, universities, research centres, SMEs and business associations from the participating regions and beyond.

E5DES Project: The E5DES project will allow to increase and strengthen the R&D+i of international excellence, in a coordinated manner from the DESAL+ LIVING LAB Platform, in the search for projects and solutions in desalination. To this end, continuous improvement actions of technological and scientific capacities and external visibility will be carried out, supporting entrepreneurial ideas (startups) and providing innovative solutions in the strategic and priority research lines identified for the Macaronesian area.

Desalination Technological Challenges: This initiative aims to attract and provide knowledge applicable to desalination processes with remarkable international outreach on the desalination. A pre-commercial technology tender will be publish soon for emerging technologies on seawater desalination.
