British Columbia-based Saltworks Technologies is seeking $10 million in Series A funding to help commercialize its patent-pending thermo-ionic desalination technology. Saltworks outfitted 1,000 litre a-day seawater pilot plant will soon be fully operational at a harbour location in Vancouver, Canada. The company is now looking for initial small scale demonstration projects in key markets. The money is expected to be used to ramp marketing and sales, build partnerships, continue IP advancement and secure the supply chain.
