Europe’s largest membrane water treatment plant started in Vladimir

Vladimir was commissioned plant RUSNANO project company "RM Nanotech '- Europe's largest fabric and production of membrane filter modules based on it.

"RM Nanotech" is the first and currently the only manufacturer of systems for ultra-and nanofiltration, and reverse osmosis systems in Russia and the seventh in a similar enterprise in the world. The total budget of the project amounts to more than 2.2 billion rubles, including co-financing RUSNANO of 1.7 billion rubles.

The plant will operate 150.


Production, covers an area of nearly ten thousand square meters, was built in record time: c moment of laying the first stone before the release of the first product on the unique equipment was less than two years. The company is included in the list of priority investment projects of the Central Federal District.

The problem of insufficient purity of water is acute in Russia. 11 million Russians use undrinkable water. In this case, deterioration of water and sewer systems is 70%, and more than half of the wastewater flowing cleaning is advised to the regulatory requirements. The above factors are the cause of a number of intestinal infections, hepatitis, as well as pathologies resulting from exposure to the organism carcinogenic and mutagenic factors.

Technology and ultra nanofiltration and reverse osmosis, the underlying production of filters "RM Nanotech 'have better compared to conventional technologies, performance water purification. The main reason — the pore size of the main-selective layer of the membrane web, which in the case of an ultrafiltration of 10 to 100 nanometers, and in the case of nanofiltration of 1 to 5 nanometers. Moreover, they are cheaper to operate. In particular, systems based on reverse osmosis, used for the desalination of seawater, consumes half the power compared with multi-step systems boiling and condensation.

At present, in the face steadily growing domestic market of membrane filters used by almost 99% in Russia membrane modules are imported. Until the end of this year, the plant will produce up to 200,000 square meters of membrane fabric. It is planned that by 2017, when the company will reach its design capacity, output will be no less than 2 million square meters of fabric and 200,000 filter modules per year, which will allow the company to take almost half of the Russian market. Consumers of the products of the new plant will be the engineering companies that manufacture water treatment systems for end users, as well as the chemical, pharmaceutical and food industries, many of which have already expressed their interest in having a major domestic supplier.

"It is the dream of a generation of Russian specialists" membranschikov ": the creation of ultra-modern factory, which has no analogues not only in Russia but also in Europe. The technology of membrane filtration, too, is unique: no one has yet come up with a more secure and low-cost method of producing high purity drinking and industrial water. And if you take into account the fact that our membranes are manufactured on the most modern and unique equipment that meet international standards, the results can only rejoice. Both us and our customers, "- said General Director of" RM Nanotech " Ivan Bazhenov.

Technical Reference

Membrane technology is widely used in all areas of the industry where there is a need for water treatment and wastewater treatment. The use of membrane technology in areas such as electric power, microelectronics, pharmaceutical and food industries, saves the cost of obtaining ultra pure and safe from the point of view of microbiological contamination of water. Furthermore, their use reduces the cost of wastewater treatment, and a concentrated solution in the chemical and dairy industries. The problems of monitoring and cleaning fluids are present in almost all areas of human activity. Because of these tasks at the molecular level without a phase transition, these technologies are optimal in terms of efficiency and economy.

Ultrafiltration removes particles in the solution and having a size of 10 nanometers. Typically, this high molecular weight organic material or aggregates of molecules. In this regard, the main areas of application are water treatment and separation and concentration of protein solutions, in particular in the dairy industry.

Remove from the water as possible from dissolved salts by nanofiltration and reverse osmosis. However, the use of reverse osmosis purification of water with salinity environments to 3 g / l leads to almost complete their demineralization and, consequently, can not be used as drinking water without artificial its mineralization. The use, in this case nanofiltration (removes particles down to 5 nm) allows full physiologically drinking water with good organoleptic properties.
