• Membrane technologies for water applications
Tackling the growing gap between water demand and water supply, while achieving good status of all water bodies, is a growing challenge worldwide. As part of the solution, membranes for
water applications are arousing great interest as potentially cost-effective answers to a large range of purification and separation needs. A series of Community research projects administered by the
European Commission under the Environment Theme of the RTD Framework Programmes, has investigated and tested new membrane technologies from lab-scale to full-scale for municipal and industrial wastewater treatment, as well as for drinking water production by routes including the desalination of seawater and brackish water. This brochure outlines some of the notable successes to date.
