The plans are to combine the enzyme-enhanced nanofiltration membrane with monitoring systems, to selectively remove small organic compounds from drinking water sources.
Developed at the University of Twente, the membranes incorporate a very thin, polymeric selective layer as the basis, which passes the pure water but rejects the micro-pollutants. <
To then bring the technology to market, as part of the 24Water project, NX Filtration worked with local SME Artecs followed by a final validation and system installation tested by water company Oasen.
Erik Roesink, general manager of NXFiltration (as seen in the video below), said: “I’m sure we will manage to get a breakthrough in the drinking water production scheme based on the technologies we have on board.”
