Abstract High Flux, Fouling Resistant Membranes for RO Pretreatment, contract number N00014-10-C-0224. The purpose of the contract is to develop pretreatment membranes that improve the desalination process onboard ships. In the case of pretreatment, this means extending the life of the RO membranes and improving the reliability (uptime) of the desalination process. The scope of the contract as proposed by PoroGen and Clean Membranes is to develop a fouling resistant, hollow-fiber, ultrafiltration membrane. Hollow fiber membrane module based on PAN-g-PEO technology was successfully developed in the course of this program. Superior anti-fouling operational characteristics were demonstrated.
