Company Description

EWM (Enviro Water Minerals Company, Inc.) is a water technology company that focuses on game changing water solutions. EWM’s processes drive affordable water creation using sustainable desalination that recovers all the water and minerals for beneficial use.

EWM’s processes are designed to separate salty waters into clean water and beneficial minerals without creating any waste. The water created by EWM’s processes is affordable because the sale of recovered minerals as commodities subsidizes the cost of desalination. EWM’s technology is applicable globally to seawater desalination, brackish water desalination, produced water, lithium-containing brines, mining tailings, agricultural runoff, and other industrial water sources containing salt and minerals. EWM also added renewable energy to be used with its desalination process such that the process also results in no waste. EWM has been granted over 10 U.S. patents and a patent in over 10 other countries.

EWM is a technology company. It plans to assist in designing a plant based on the EWM technology and license its technology to the plant. EWM’s revenue is planned to come from both consulting services and license fees.EWM’s expected customers include Governments (municipalities, international governments, etc.) and Industry (those needing clean water or creating wastewater) - including lithium/copper mining companies, hydrogen companies, energy companies, semiconductor companies, etc.

According to Global News Wire, Research and Markets has stated that the desalination market is projected to grow from US$19.29B in 2021 to US$32.02B by 2027. This signifies the market opportunity for the company. 

Two successful pilots have been conducted employing EWM’s process. A full-scale commercial plant for brackish water using EWM’s technology was built in El Paso, Texas. The plant was based on EWM’s process technology. EWM has recently (in 2023) signed three distribution agreements. One with a large multi-million dollar company that works with produced water in the Middle East/North Africa, one with a consulting company that works in Mexico, and one for the Philippines. These agreements have revenue targets that the partners must meet in order for the exclusivity to continue. EWM also has recently been requested to submit its technology for a request for proposal for three large mining companies and also is in discussions about a potential project with a multi-billion dollar international conglomerate. Overall, there is great interest in the use of EWM’s technology in various implementations and countries and, based on feedback from these companies. Revenue for 2022 was $15k compared to $932k in 2021.
