Membrane technologies, including the process of reverse osmosis are becoming increasingly important in many parts of the world where they are used extensively in a variety of applications including the desalination and purification of drinking water.

Such membrane separation technologies are particularly effective for the recovery and re-use of both water and raw materials from process streams and can be an important component of any waste and effluent minimisation initiative.

Membrane Separation Technologies - Techniques for Minimising Wastes & Effluents

Many industrial processes generate effluent streams that contain a mixture of substances. To reduce the cost of processing these streams, operators can remove the substances that they contain using a range of membrane separation technologies.
