New “green” technology for advanced water treatment based on functionalized polysulfones/ionic liquids membranes
Project status: Ongoing
About Objectives Results Team Contact

The GreenTechMembr project addresses one of the big problems facing the society on the water pollution and aims at developing a new "green" technology for water treatment able to overcome the disadvantages of conventional technologies and to offer numerous advantages (minimum energy consumption, high selectivity, technical feasibility and low volume of waste), thus representing a "green", compact and economical alternative system. In order to achieve these improvements, which contribute significantly to the quality and efficiency of the systems that address human health, the innovation of this project consists in the design and development of new types of  surfaces- polysulfone membranes functionalized with ionic liquids - with improved characteristics, integrated in an innovative unit treatment, tested and validated at the laboratory-scale, for the treatment of water through a technological process of microfiltration.
