Brine Recovery in Containment (BRIC) Project

Completed Technology Project

Project Description

Brine Recovery in Containment (BRIC) Project

The Brine Residual in Containment (BRIC) project aims to close the water recovery loop by enabling water to be extracted from concentrated wastewater brines. BRIC is based on an in-place drying concept within a sealed disposal container. The design is intended to accommodate the three phases of brine processing, liquid, gas and solid, while reducing the potential for system fouling and exposure of crew to toxic and hazardous brine material. BRIC is described in technology disclosure MSC-24964-1, which will be published in an upcoming issue of NASA Tech Briefs.
