Delivering More Water at Less Cost
Mar 31st, 2017
Membrane fouling drives costs up and reliability down such that many applications for difficult to treat water are not currently served by Microfiltration/Ultrafiltration membrane filtration. Commodity polymer membranes have proven unalbe to do the work and ceramics are too expensive. This critical technology gap must be bridged to enable more widespread applications of MF/UF, hence expansion in the reuse of the industrial and municipal wastewaters. This paper reviews the state of the art MF/UF technologies and what Water Planet is doing to deliver next generation improvements for MF/UF membranes that are already bridging this critical gap.
