A MORE SUSTAINABLE USE
OF WATER IN ALL
INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS

Water scarcity, industrial pollution and a lack of water reuse are pressing problems. Around the world governments, industries and consumers are pushing for greener solutions that limit the use of water in industrial applications. From textiles to pharmaceuticals and heavy industry, our Aquaporin Inside membranes are simple and cost efficient way to streamline your water recovery processes and step up your water reuse.

Whatever your wastewater challenge, our membranes and expertise can help you improve water recovery rates, reduce wastewater - and lower your CAPEX (capital expenses) and OPEX (operating expenses).

Achieving zero liquid discharge
with forward osmosis

Many believe that forward osmosis is the only viable way to achieve Zero Liquid Discharge. Aquaporin Inside® Forward Osmosis membranes are a key part of making this possible.

Extremely thin and selective, Aquaporin Inside® Forward Osmosis membranes enable good water flux even at low pressure. They also reject more compounds than any other membrane on the market – achieving recovered water of high quality. As a result, you can reduce operational costs by maintaining high production capacity while running at lower pressures. And, the lowest reverse salt flux on the market benefits the overall process costs and extends process lifetime. 

  • High selectivity enables treatment of even the most difficult process water and effluent
  • Lower fouling reduces production stops and costs related to cleaning
  • Minimal reverse flux ensures a clean concentrate, without additional treatment
  • Compact design reduces plant footprint
  • Lack of heat or hydraulic pressure results results in lower energy consumption 
  • Less use of chemicals results in a greener process

FORWARD OSMOSIS - THE MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


Forward osmosis is increasingly being used in a range of water treatment applications, from food and beverage production to heavy industry. Here are answers to a few common questions about the process.

ADVANTAGES OF FORWARD OSMOSIS

Reduce your water use
Very high rejection rates significantly increase permeate water quality - for a more sustainable reuse of water and lower disposal costs. 
Treat challenging waste streams
High efficiency enables you to handle higher levels of COD (chemical oxygen demand) and TDS (total dissolved solids) than other technologies on the market. 
Enjoy low installation costs
Easily retrofit our membranes on existing processes to streamline your water treatment with lower CAPEX compared to other technologies.
Minimize maintenance and downtime
Reduced fouling means less cleaning and fewer interruptions in your treatment.
Step up your capacity with smaller footprint
High flux rates enable you to process more water, without increasing your footprint.
Turn your waste into profit
Capture precious materials in your wastewater - such as nutrients or metals - for recycling or reuse.
Meet industry requirements - and your own environmental targets
Stringent regulation on the use and reuse of water in industries is a growing trend. With our Forward Osmosis membranes in your effluent treatment, you can minimize the steps needed to fulfill internal and external requirements.

Important considerations for implementing ZLD for industrial wastewater treatment

Zero liquid discharge (ZLD) wastewater treatment can improve water recycling, reclaim valuable resources and eliminate contaminated wastewater discharge. But before implementing a ZLD system, you must consider several important factors. The rapid depletion of water resources in water stressed countries like India has forced many industries to reevaluate their approach to water management. In addition, […]
