Membrane technology provides separation of suspended solids from liquid through a highly-selective permeable polymeric or ceramic material under positive or suction pressure. Membranes can therefore be used to thicken sludge by allowing water to pass through through the membrane, leaving the thickened solids on the unpermeated side.

How do you solve a problem like PFAS?

PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) are generated from the breakdown of fluorinated polymers. The activation barrier for their breakdown is huge and the only fully commercialised processes possibly capable of destroying PFAS are thermochemical ones.
