Desalination technology has brought fresh water and hence industrial and commercial development to areas of the world that otherwise might have remained unproductive. Not only has development been enhanced by this technology but, more importantly, the health and welfare of many people have been improved by the supply of sanitary fresh water supplies.
I have started the new year on the right foot. I bought a house. I have spent many years day dreaming about my first home. The fireplace, staircase, patio, large kitchen, an office and my very own driveway ... which of course I will despise by the end of this harsh Chicago winter.

Nanofiltration is a liquid separation membrane technology positioned between reverse osmosis (RO) and ultrafiltration.
Water Needs, Unique Research Arrangement Lead to Membrane Development
Innovations in membrane technology, which has been used in major industries and hospitals, are driving the industry into the home.
Part one of this article appeared in the July issue and discussed microfiltration and utrafiltration. This article discusses nanofiltration and reverse osmosis.
Once considered a viable technology only for desalination, membrane processes are increasingly employed for removal of bacteria and other microorganisms, particulate material and natural organic material that can impart color, tastes and odors to the water.
The membrane processing technologies of microfiltration (MF), ultrafiltration (UF), nanofiltration (NF) and reverse osmosis (RO) are widely used to separate suspended and dissolved materials from water solutions in numerous industrial, medical and drinking water applications.
The increasingly broad range of requirements for water quality has motivated the water treatment industry to refine existing techniques, combine methods and explore new water purification technologies including desalination.
As consumer awareness grows in regard to the quality of water consumed every day from the numerous well water systems across America, the process that is gaining the most attention is that of disinfection.
There are solutions that work when a customer says "no" such as justifying the value and showing the customer he’ll be dollars ahead. What follows is a list of questions for the customer and then various scenerios that will refer you back to them.
