REMEMBRANE proposes an innovative and environment-friendly technology to recover membranes to reuse them in the desalination process which need a lower quality water specification, but always in reverse osmosis technology avoiding landfill disposal and thus extending the life of the membranes.
Currently, there are more than 15.000 desalination plants operating in 100 countries. More than 80% of these installations work with membranes based in reverse osmosis technologies. The growth of the global market for desalination, especially in the Mediterranean region, Asia, America and Middle East, is estimated at over 10% per year with an expected capacity of 100 million m3 per day and a specified investment of €50.000 per m3 per day, which defines a potential volume of €50 million.
REMEMBRANE offers an real solutions to overcome this environmental problem.
REMEMBRANE is a project co-funded by the European Community under the LIFE+ financial instrument with the Grant Agreement n. LIFE11 ENV/ES/626.
