C Improvements by advanced membrane/module production
Membranes are often discussed as a resource saving technique. However the membrane and module production is demanding a lot of resources which is impacting the climate/environment.
Innovation needs to be done in terms of
- Energy efficient production process (temperatures,…)
- Resources saving production process (water, chemicals,…)
- Usage of “green” solvents
- Biodegradable polymer materials
- Usage of recycled polymer materials
- Recycling of membranes and membrane modules
By using a holistic approach including optimization of production processes of the single components membrane technology may be optimized towards climate protection.
