Breathing New Life Into Membranes

Point-of-use (POU) reverse osmosis (RO) membranes often get a bad rap within the water treatment industry for a few reasons: It is a saturated, commoditized market with slimmer margins; there have been minimal technological advancements in system performance; they have a high percentage of wastewater to drinking water; and consumers are demanding greener, less wasteful products.

Beating the Desert Heat

Water scarcity is a universal and growing issue. With huge projected population growth, this problem will only continue to increase. The World Economic Forum reported that the world’s population surpassed 7 billion in 2011, and is expected to reach 9.3 billion by 2050. Urbanization, industrialization, pollution, increased energy needs and climate change all reinforce the stress of population growth, making water accessibility an even more pressing issue.
