Short description: Pure water deficit demands cheap solutions for industry and household applications. Hollow fiber (HF) polymer membranes is a very efficient tool for water and wastewater purification. But conventional PSU HF membranes are expensive to manufacture and their production is not environmentally friendly.
Market potential: Solution will be prone for drinking water market, for municipal, wastewater and industrial water treatment purposes and for various Biotech applications including membrane bioreactors and desalination
Timing: Our company is going to complete the development and begin pilot production of environmentally friendly hollow fiber membranes for water treatment needs based on stretched polyolefins within 24 month.
Desired result: Introduction of advanced membrane technologies and the mass production of inexpensive and Eco-friendly membranes will ensure a higher level of public safety in the face of a growing shortage of clean water and ensure the environmental safety of the production of such membranes.
Information on challenge owner: Mid-Cap (250-3,000 staff).
Market presence of challenge owner: Active in several countries.
