Filtration and related technologies
Membrane separation processes are based on the presence of semi permeable membranes which acts as a very specific filter that will let water flow through, while it catches suspended solids and other substances. There are various methods to enable substances to penetrate a membrane, like the application of high pressure, the maintenance of a concentration gradient on both sides of the membrane and the introduction of an electric potential. The main force of membrane technology is the fact that it works without the addition of chemicals, with a relatively low energy use and easy and well-arranged process conductions.
