Abstract:Membrane filtration is a technology utilizing “smart filters” capable of separating contaminants from clean detergent. The crux of the technology lies in the ability of these filters to separate molecules on the basis of differences in their sizes, shapes, and charges. Membrane filtration is actually a whole array of techniques, including nanofiltration, multiple membrane filtration, reverse osmosis, microfiltration, and ultrafiltration. The names refer to different sized pores in the membrane filters. The fact sheet briefly describes how three Illinois companies used membrane filtration technology to clean their baths, recover chemicals for reuse, and cut aqueous waste by as much as 99%.
