Redefining the limits of membrane filtration.
Fifteen percent of US energy consumption is dedicated to purifying streams in industrial processes. From polymers for plastic products, to active pharmaceutical ingredients for drugs, to nutrients for food products, traditional methods to separate and purify rely on heat. Via Separations is tackling this energy use in process separations by developing a novel, more resilient filtration membrane.
