The membrane technology has experienced in Europe, a steady growth in recent years and its application on an industrial scale has a good acceptance, especially in medical and public health fields (dialysis) and in water treatment (desalination plants seawater).

Separation processes using membranes offer several competitive advantages respect to traditional processes, because they involve a relatively cheap technology, environmentally friendly (low energy costs), can operate at room temperature and continuously. Still, most commercial membranes are not suitable for many different processes that can be applied.

METEOR has several experts in development (self-produced commercial membranes or modificatin) and study of membranes for specific industrial processes.
