Reactive polymer membrane for water disinfection and chemical contaminant removal

Autores:Marcos Fernández García
The ICP and the ICTP (CSIC) have developed a polymer membrane for water treatment that acts as antimicrobial disinfectant, while allows removal of chemical contaminants typically present in industrial water. The hydrodynamic resistance of this membrane allows treating high water fluxes and its UV resistance increases its lifetime. Its biocidal effect has been successfully tested for Escherichia Coli (E. Coli), where after short exposure time the bacteria is totally removed without affecting membrane flux, thus revealing its antifouling effect.
An industrial partner interested in manufacturing this membrane under a license agreement for its application in industrial water treatment plants is sought
