Technology

Technology Description: Professor Hoek and colleagues have developed a novel reverse osmosis (RO) membrane formulation that is chlorine tolerant and extremely hydrophilic which imparts significantly better biofouling resistance in application like desalination and water reuse. These new RO membranes could be packaged for use in new and existing RO water treatment plants where they could reduce overall energy demand and cost of operation. Applications: RO water treatment plants
