LANXESS' Lewabrane reverse osmosis membrane elements now comply with the “NSF/ANSI Standard 61" for health-related implications of drinking water system components.

The U.S. National Sanitation Foundation (NSF International) has certified that all brackish water membrane elements currently offered by LANXESS are safe for use in the treatment of drinking water.

The primary aim of the NSF Standard 61 is the objective evaluation and limitation of impurities and admixtures that are added to drinking water indirectly due to the products, components and materials used in the treatment process. The NSF standard is designed to protect public health and the environment.

Alan Sharpe, head of the RO membrane project in the Liquid Purification Technologies (LPT) business unit of LANXESS, said: “This quality certificate is necessary for treating drinking water and, with it, we can now access an additional market with strong potential for growth. In most countries, compliance with NSF Standard 61 is a basic prerequisite for usage in drinking water applications and therefore a key quality indicator."
