Water treatment and reuse
Unlocking new sources for water, our hollow fiber nanofiltration membrane technology enables direct treatment of grey water and biologically treated wastewater effluent. Not only does this prevent the discharge of polluting substances such as medicinal residues, pesticides, chemicals, or PFAS in the environment, but also to enable the reuse of the water produced, a powerful concept to save water. Moreover, our direct nanofiltration membranes offers significant saving in terms of energy usage and chemical consumption in comparison to traditional membrane technologies.
Municipal water reuse
Existing wastewater treatment systems struggle to meet ever tightening discharge regulations in particular for a wide range of micropollutants, including pesticides, PFAS, pharmaceuticals, personal care products and endocrine disruptors such as bisphenol A and synthetic hormones (estrogens). When such micropollutants end up in our surface waters they become a growing threat, not only to the aquatic life, but also for the quality of drinking water supplies and thus public health are under pressure.
At the same time water scarcity and water supply stresses are increasing around the globe. Our breakthrough direct nanofiltration membranes are ideally suited for this challenge. They retain pollutants and as a result produce high quality water to be applied for an array of uses. Furthermore, this comes at a significantly reduced CO2 footprint compared to traditional membrane technologies. We see this as an important contributor in addressing global challenges around water quality and scarcity.
