purification membranes are useful in a number of applications. But
membranes traditionally suffer from high cost, low flux, fouling, and
poor durability. Low flux means that high pressures must be applied,
which requires huge amounts of energy. These problems prevent economical
water purification solutions for residential, commercial, industrial,
and large utility applications.
ITN has developed membranes that outperform current state of the art membranes:
- Excellent selectivity (passing water while rejecting contaminants)
- High water flux (high water flow rate without high pressure requirements)
- Anti-fouling chemistry (extended operating times without clogging)
- Durability (long lifespan without leaking, breaking, or losing functionality)
- Low cost
high-performance separation membranes used across multiple industries
enable economical water purification, significant reduction in energy
expenditures, and reduced costs for separation processes.
