Patent Device for the decontamination of water from metals:

The invention relates to a robust, versatile and low-cost device composed of a nanostructured polymer membrane, better known as mixed matrix membrane, based on Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) as porous hybrid materials, used for the decontamination of water from heavy metals, such as mercury and cadmium. The invention is in an experimental phase on a laboratory scale (TRL4). m2-scale membranes could be produced after the production of kilogram-scale porous materials, which would facilitate an application in a pilot plant. The CNR-ITM-UniCal consortium has facilities for the development of polymeric membranes for industrial application.
