Permitting and Authorization Identification for Wave Powered Reverse Osmosis Desalination

Oneka Technologies created a Sea Water Reverse Osmosis Unit that desalinates sea water into fresh potable water using only kinetic energy of ocean waves to drive this entire process. A small solar panel on top of the buoy provides power to the controls and communication back to shore. With extensive water treatment expertise and a Barbados office, Integrated Sustainability was retained by Oneka Technologies to navigate the regulatory landscape and process for implementation of the Sea Water Reverse Osmosis Unit in Barbados.
