Membrion Announces Its Collaboration With W. L. Gore & Associates to Develop Ultra-thin Ceramic Ion Exchange Membranes for E

SEATTLE , January 25 /Businesswire/ - Membrion, a ceramic desalination membrane manufacturer that enables recovery of up to 98% of water in harsh environments, announced their collaboration with W. L. Gore and Associates, a global leader in advanced materials research and investigative science, to perform commercial testing of their jointly developed ultra-thin ceramic ion exchange membranes.

Membrion and Gore have successfully demonstrated up to a 4-fold enhancement in salt flux above Membrion’s industry leading CeramIX®️ membrane in a commercial scale. This enables energy efficient salt, mineral, and metal removal in concentrated brines, many of which have other contaminants such as acids, oxidizers, foulants or scalants that make them hard-to-treat.

“Our core product is about taking membranes where they’ve never gone before and now Gore is helping us take them even further than we thought possible,” Membrion CEO and co-founder Greg Newbloom said in a statement. “It’s been an honor collaborating with a company like Gore who has a long track record of creating industry-leading products.”

Membrion and Gore are tackling the treatment of complex brines in the semiconductor, food, mining, and other industries. These streams are typically too complex or harsh to treat with existing membrane technologies and are usually trucked off-site for disposal. The technology aims to eliminate the need for off-site transport while enabling a cost effective and energy efficient treatment of water in these industries.

“We are excited to collaborate with Membrion on this important project to investigate the commercial application of advanced desalination membranes,” said Chris Kane, Advanced Materials Innovation Associate at Gore. “As a global materials science company, we remain dedicated to developing high-performing products that meet our customers’ challenging requirements.”

Gore and Membrion are also looking for piloting and performance validation opportunities across numerous applications and industries. They welcome the opportunity to evaluate new use cases where their joint product can deliver significant value to industrial and municipal clients. Please contact Membrion with testing inquiries at
