Now approved: new EU funded research project for CNM-based water treatment

CNM Technologies is a core member in a consortium of eight European institutions working on ultrathin water filtration membranes.

We are happy to announce that carbon nanomembranes and especially our CNM-based composite membranes are the key technology in a new collaborative research project funded by the European Union. This support shows, that the European Commission believes in the special properties of our material, and sees a potentially huge impact of CNM-based water treatment on the society.

CNMs are extremely permeable for water while simultaneously blocking the flow of all other substances such as dissolved salts or small organic molecules. Goal of the research effort is to go beyond the laboratory scale and develop prototype plants for two markets: ultrapure water and beverage concentrates.

The project is called ‘Water separation revolutionized by ultrathin carbon nanomembranes’, short title: ‘Its-thin’. The project is being funded by the EU Research Framework Programme Horizon 2020 under the pillar ‘Scientific Excellence’, thematic area ‘Future and Emerging Technologies’.
