The point-of-entry (POE) market for ultrafiltration (UF) membrane systems has grown considerably in recent years. Respected market researchers Frost & Sullivan had predicted that the market for hollow fiber UF membranes would increase at a compounded annual growth rate of 12.9% from 2004 to 2010, though there are signs that the actual growth rate during the latter part of this period may be above original estimates.

Membrane filtration systems continue to play an important role in the growing reuse market
With an aging and often overwhelmed water supply infrastructure, evermore stringent government regulations and growing industrial requirements for pure water, municipalities and companies are increasingly turning to ultrafiltration (UF) membrane systems for water and wastewater treatment.

Until recently, using membranes for whole-house residential clarification and disinfection had not been an option for water treatment dealers. Technical advances made by Zenon Environmental in hollow fiber membrane technology for its large-scale municipal and industrial plants have changed this. Membranes are now being used in the company’s Homespring point-of-entry (POE) systems, providing a cost- effective solution for the removal of turbidity and pathogens, and delivering clear, biologically safe water.
Field applications of Homespring ultrafiltration units
A study published as part of the EPA's Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) Program verifies the performance of a Fyne Process membrane filtration plant tested on high organic-laden surface water in Barrow, Ark. The plant was able to remove significant levels of organics--precursors to disinfection byproducts such as trihalomethanes (THM) and haloacetic acids (HAA)--producing water that easily met the disinfection byproduct standards set by the EPA's stringent Stage 1 D/DBP Rule.
