Okeanos was formed in 2012 to develop a next-generation, ultra-efficient desalination technology to address our planet's chronic and increasingly alarming fresh water shortages. Our WaterChip™ platform represents a “solid-state” alternative to present-day approaches for creating fresh water from seawater and brackish aquifer sources.
We embrace the desalination problem from an entirely different perspective than others before - using a massively-scaled microtechnology to harness and redirect the corrosive potential of seawater one millionth of a liter at a time. Capable of world-record desalination efficiency, the WaterChip™ represents a new desalination paradigm and promises to address a number of profound environmental, economic and human health related problems.
