Overview

The technology is a membrane for treating acid mine drainage that is reproducible and can handle large discharges of acid mine drainage. It is suitable for implementation in a filtration cartridge setup that allows for the reclamation of metals which can then be recycled and used for other applications. It’s made up of polyethersulfone and nano hydroxy-solid particles with hydrophilic functional groups which facilitate the permeation of water molecules whilst at the same time preventing the permeation of metal and metal ions.
