The technology and equipment can be applied where water flows of different salinity meet, so, where rivers flow into the sea, or treated effluents are discharged. Once fully implemented, this technology can generate up to 10% of the world power demand in an efficient and  eco-friendly way.
REDstack is seeking capital for realising in-house membrane manufacturing and stack assembly lines, expanding the pilot plant into a demonstration plant, and implementing sales of membrane stacks. Next step: To expand the pilot plant into a demonstration plant, by increasing the capacity with 12 full-industrial-size membrane-stacks; and realizing in-house manufacturing facilities for the membranes and stacks. Strategic cooperation is in place with leading consultants and sales-channel. | TAM:  225 billion; SOM in 2026: 375 million | TRL: 7; a pilot plant is successfully operating at the Afsluitdijk in the Netherlands | Next step: up-scaling the present pilot plant into a demonstration plants, using industrial size efficient membrane stacks.  | EUR 17.0 sought (on top of EUR 5.0 Mn of subsidy that is already allocated) - The Netherlands
