EL SEGUNDO, CALIF. — NanoH2O, a California-based start-up company, is manufacturing a new membrane material for reverse osmosis, according to an article on greentechmedia.com.

The new membrane, based on technology developed by UCLA researcher Eric Hoek, allows more fresh water to cross the barrier with less pressure from a pump, according to the story.

Municipal and industrial plants upgraded with the new membrane could experience up to a 20 percent reduction in energy consumption, the article reported.

“It all comes down to the performance of the membrane,” said NanoH2O CEO Jeff Green. “A more productive membrane allows less energy to be used or provides higher throughput.”
