FuturENVIRONº 23 of the journal FuturENVIRO has just been published. This last issue includes a report on the project LIFE-Transfomem “Transformation of disposed reverse osmosis membranes into recycled ultrafiltration and nanofiltration membranes”, in which IMDEA Water and SADYT participate. This project started in June 2014.

The objective of the TRANSFOMEM project is to increase the sustainability of membrane water treatment systems by improving the durability of such systems and reducing the environmental costs associated with this technology. This is to be achieved through the recycling, using eco-friendly  methods, of reverse osmosis desalination membranes  and using the converted membranes in low-pressure filtration processes. These membranes, with significantly higher permeability, will have two direct applications: in the pretreatment stage of brackish water reverse osmosis processes and in tertiary treatment of wastewater, in such a way that the use of the regenerated membranes will enable the water quality standards required for  subsequent reuse to be achieved.


TRANSFOMEM is a project funded under the LIFE + financial instrument  (contract n. LIFE13 ENV/ES/000751)
