Membranes and Environment
Physical barriers that separate inorganic, organic, viral or bacterial contaminants, membranes provide a high-level guarantee against any form of water contamination.
Membrane technologies, coupled with the use of renewable energies (solar, wind), answer perfectly to many of the water-related issues encountered by countries in the southern hemisphere: access to drinking water, treatment and preservation of the resource (recycling and reuse), etc.
SIMEV opens today to biomimicry, that is to say, to the study of processes and procedures directly inspired by nature. The chair also gets involved in science diplomacy, with the objective of preventing water-related conflicts through increased scientific and technical cooperation.
