Desalination Research & Innovation Consortium (DRINC)



The Desalination Research & Innovation Consortium (DRINC) was established to expand our nation's water supply by creating breakthrough technologies from early stage R&D that deliver water at pipe parity with conventional water supplies. DRINC supports the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) goal to establish a multi-disciplinary Energy Innovation Hub that will be a central pillar in research and development efforts regarding our nation's water supply.


DRINC was founded by Argonne National Laboratory, Idaho National Laboratory and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. DRINC partners include university, industrial, and government researchers willing to conceive, design, and evaluate the next generation of clean water technologies.
