Water Treatment programs are based upon our membranes and polymeric/hybrid
material core capability. We design new membranes for
ultra- and nano-filtration and reverse osmosis processes.
addition to our core competencies in polymeric and hybrid materials
and testing, we have a membrane water treatment lab with a 5-cell
electrodialysis stack, one high pressure RO stirred cell, three
low-pressure stirred cells, and three crossflow membrane cells.
We measure water flux, salt rejection, small molecule rejection,
and fouling of commercial membranes and membranes that we produce
research interfaces with the Sandia
Water Initiative as well as with internal LDRD.
