Polyurethane Nanofiber Membranes for Waste Water Treatment by Membrane Distillation

Article English OPEN
T. Jiříček; M. Komárek; T. Lederer;

Self-sustained electrospun polyurethane nanofiber membranes were manufactured and tested on a direct-contact membrane distillation unit in an effort to find the optimum membrane thickness to maximize flux rate and minimize heat losses across the membrane. Also salt rete... View more
