Title: Transformation of disposed reverse osmosis membranes into recycled ultra and nanofiltration membranes

Duration: 2014 - 2018

Research groups: Membrane technology


TRANSFOMEM is an European Community co-funding LIFE project with contract number LIFE13 ENV/ES/000751 coordinated by IMDEA WATER. It aims to develop an innovative recycling process for reverse-osmosis membranes disposed in landfills. End-of-life reverse osmosis membranes are transformed to lower pressure ultra-nanofiltration membranes in order to use them for wastewater treatment. LIFE TRANSFOMEM is framed in the “LIFE+ Environment Policy & Governance” component: pilot projects that contribute to the development of innovative policy ideas, technologies, methods and instruments.


This Project received funding from the European Union LIFE Programme Under Grant Agreement Number LIFE13 ENV/ES/000751.
