Mem 2.0 project has launched this online survey to know how membranes for water treatment are managed at their end-of-life. If you are a membrane user, please, take 5 minutes of your time to fill it out. You will contribute to a technical-social analysis on membranes’ end-of-life.
Mem 2.0 project will foster systems that demonstrate the potential and the applicability of second hand membranes (end-of-life RO and recycled NF-UF membranes) for drinking water and wastewater treatment (at pilot and real scale). Additionally, it will integrate the experimental results and the most relevant information related to end-of-life pressure driven membrane management into two existing decision making tools: MemEOL and Novedar_Consolider. The launching of this survey, created in collaboration with Life-Transfomem consortium, is the first step to achieve this objective.
Besides Mem 2.0 project, the information will be used to:
- Upgrade the MemEoL online available tool created by a team of researchers at UNSW (Sydney, Australia). The main objective of this tool is promoting better practices in the desalination industry by helping users identify and select the optimum end-of-life option for their used reverse osmosis (RO) membranes.
- Upgrade a Web-mapping created under the European project Life-Transfomem framework by IMDEA Water researchers (Madrid, Spain). It shows alternatives of end-of-life membrane management to landfill disposal. The main aim is to network public and private entities Globally. If you are part of this community and you did not find your institution at the web-mapping, please contact us!!!
Mem 2.0 project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 712949 (TECNIOspring PLUS) and from the Agency for Business Competitiveness of the Government (ACCIÓ) of Catalonia. Research activity is conducted at University of South Wales (UNSW, Australia) and at the University of Girona (UdG, Spain).
