New project: membrandestillation

The project aims to conduct research with respect to the separation and concentration of different polluted waters using membrandestillation. The studies will involve both systems analysis and studies on purification technology, efficiency and energy consumption. The technique has been developed over many years in lab scale level and has been proven to have great potential for certain problems. Xzero is the first company that has developed a full-scale system to be used for research and evaluation. 

The project will evaluate the effectiveness of membrandestillation for various types of polluted water such as arsenic contaminated groundwater, contaminated wastewater with pharmaceuticals, recycling of water from desalination plants, and treatment of certain industrial wastewater. 

IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute is the coordinator of the project. Other partners are Xzero and KTH Energy Technology.
