After several years of development and testing, Danish company LiqTech has released a filter membrane based on a new hybrid technology where multiple ceramic materials are combined in one membrane for water and liquid filtration.
By combining its own silicon carbide technology with another ceramic material, LiqTech has developed an ultrafiltration membrane with a pore size of 60 nanometers, which can filter liquids more precisely than before. Called Hybrid Technology Membrane (HTM), it is part of Denmark’s transition to a green tech industry and sustainable solutions
Haris Kadrispahic, LiqTech's head of Innovation, said: “It is increasingly becoming important to filter liquids more precisely so that more industries can make use of and reuse unexploited resources. Here, we can make a significant impact in the food and beverage industry and the pharmaceutical industry, but many other industries can also improve their production.”
Sune Mathiesen, LiqTech’s CEO, said: “Untreated wastewater can contain heavy metals and other pollutants. It pollutes our environment, damages our ecosystems, can spread viruses, and limits our possibilities to safely and efficiently recycle our water, which is a scarce resource.”
