Ceramic Nanofiltration – Challenges Regarding Membrane Geometries and Materials
For certain applications the use of polymeric membranes is not a viable option due to material requirements and/or economical demands. As a result of high chemical and thermal resistance as well as their inert characteristics, ceramic membranes excel in these areas. Especially since the invention of ceramic membranes for nanofiltration, a wide range of applications for ceramic membranes have opened up. Further developments made the introduction of ceramic membranes into new, previously closed, markets possible – such as the field of drinking water treatment and wastewater technology.
