Brief Description

Description :

Innovative low-cost technology for chemical conversion of commercial reverse osmosis membranes into nanofiltration membrane using a proprietary reagent. The system removes all impurities in a single step including excess total dissolved solids, salinity, hardness, turbidity, heavy metals pathogens. The highly compact skid mounted Nanofiltration system costs Rs. 3.5 Lakhs with water recovery of Technology Demonstration0% in comparison to 40-50% wastage in conventional RO systems. Beneficiaries: Urban population
