Radium Removal with Ceramic Membrane

ItN’s patented process for radium removal for drinking water is a cutting-edge water treatment technology, which has been implemented in large scale projects in the Middle East since 2014 and proven to be very cost effective and efficient. Cer@Sorp is able to remove radium from ground, surface and seawater.

This new high-tech ultrafiltration process for radium removal is innovated and prosperously implemented in three large scale plants with more than 100,000 m3/d. Cer@Sorp® combines HMO filtration with CFM Systems®. More than 98 % of radium removal in industrial scale is achieved. Implementation of Cer@Sorp® process in three water treatment plants with approximately radium removal rate of 98 % is a great achievement, which introduces new horizons to the water treatment world for removing radionuclides. This method, with the help of ceramic flat membranes of ItN, can be widely established and easily operated. Standard established methods of HMO filtration are not able to remove radium more than 83 % in one unit. Therefore, Cer@Sorp® is the best cost effective option with high Ra removal rate to optimize the filtration process with less CAPEX and OPEX compared to other technologies.
