How it all began
Mora Water Systems began in 1988, in Villarrubia de los Ojos, Spain. Nicasio Paulino Mora Vallejo, its founder, wanted to exceed the established Spanish Health Department guidelines for acceptable water recycling practices. Mora’s aim was to recycle all industrial liquid waste from electrolytic plants. Water recycling was a difficult operation at the time, particularly for water with a high metal content or with a high content of corrosive substances. The best processes for recycling at the time involved a process known as Reverse Osmosis. There were, however, two problems with reverse osmosis:
- Waste material could not be recovered
- Biocides and chemicals were required to clean the filters used in the process. These caused a change in the chemical composition of the by-products that made them unusable.
Mora formed a team to tackle the issues that prevented recycling naturally and they turned their thoughts to a steam-based system. It needed to be efficient, environmentally friendly and allow full recovery of all the by-products that had previously been considered waste. In 1992, after several small-scale tests, the team created the prototype for today’s machines. The test was to clean water with a high content of copper pyrophosphate. Since then there have been seven advancements in the machine’s development. Today’s process requires no chemicals, filters, or membranes; and represents the most advanced and environmentally friendly desalination system in the industry, as we know it. Systematic testing and a strong mission statement and value systems have helped Mora achieve what others had never considered possible before.
