“[I]A chemical engineering professor at The University of Texas at Austin is part of a team that has developed a chlorine-tolerant membrane that should simplify the water desalination process, increasing access to fresh water and possibly reducing greenhouse gases.[/I]”
“[I]The chlorine-tolerant membrane is made of sulfonated copolymers versus the currently used polyamide membranes.[/I]”
I wonder if there will be cross-industry trickle-down technology/usage of this technology such that it may be utilized in WC’ing RO units without the need for a carbon (chlorine) prefilter.
