Low-cost membrane can help clean up oil spills 28.5.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
Researchers have developed a low-cost membrane that effectively separates oil and water, paving the way for effectively cleaning up oil spills and treating industrial wastewater in the future. The membrane consists of a treated copper mesh that can be switched from oil-removal to water-removal mode simply by applying a few seconds' worth of voltage from a regular alkaline battery. In the oil-removal mode, heavy oil passes through the mesh while water is retained; in water-removal mode, the mesh allows water to pass through while retaining light oil. This enables users to achieve almost complete separation of both light and heavy oils from water using a single membrane. "This technology offers an effective and eco-friendly way to reduce the negative impacts of oily water and wastewater, which are being produced by domestic, municipal and industrial processes every day," said Chun Haow Kung, a master's student at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Canada. "Other oil-water separation methods, such ...
