See you in Chicago!
Don’t miss AM’s CEO Craig Beckman and CTO CJ Kurth co-present at WEFTEC’s SDG Theater on Tuesday, Oct 19 at 11:30am. They'll be discussing what technology trends, government policies, consumer pressures, and activist investors mean for the future of water.
Optimizing the RO Process
Reverse osmosis (RO) elements are essential to daily life – power plants use them, they’re under your sink, and they’re essential to making the coffee or soda you may be sipping right now. But the standard RO process is energy-intensive and sends a lot of water down the drain. Our Printed Spacer Technology® manufactures an RO element that is more efficient and costs less.
What does real water scarcity look like?
As we’ve seen recently in California, water scarcity can be devastating. CEO Craig Beckman has confronted water scarcity around the globe and is committed to sharing the potential of Aqua Membranes technology to increase access to fresh water by creating an RO element that creates 30-40% more output.
Making Waves in the Semiconductor Industry
As water-intensive chipmakers seek to recycle more water, The Business Journal has reported on the addition of CTO Christopher (“CJ”) Kurth to the AM team, months after a round of investment with money from U.S. chipmaker Micron Technology, Inc.
About Aqua Membranes
With its unique Printed Spacer Technology®, Aqua Membranes is revolutionizing membrane water filtration in home RO systems, desalination, food and beverage, and industrial processes.  Applying a unique customized raised pattern to flat sheet membranes, the new technology replaces conventional mesh feed spacers in spiral-wound elements. This simple innovation dramatically lowers user operating expenses and capital costs and increases water throughput capacity.
