Toray’s New RO Membrane Element Recovers Twice as Much Water

Toray Industries, Inc. has developed a new small-sized reverse osmosis (RO) membrane element with dramatically improved water recovery. Highly efficient water generation with energy saving is achieved with a technology that limits the resistance of feed water and purified water flowing through the RO membrane to the minimum, thus boosting the velocity of the flow of feed water. Toray will carry out global demonstrations to expand the scale and apply the technology in large-scale, industrial use RO membrane elements. RO membrane elements are used in the purification of various types of water, and technological developments to further improve water recovery performance are required to respond to water problems that are
