CSIR-IICT develops membrane to separate harmful chemicals from industrial waste water. In times of scarcity of water here's some encouraging news. Indian scientists have developed a simple method to recover usable water from industrial waste. The technique, using a nanofiltration membrane, ensures the separation of harmful chlorides and cyanide from the contaminated waters in certain chemical industries. The membrane is economical and the process low pressure, which can substitute the regularly used reverse osmosis for specific applications. Developed by the Hyderabad-based CSIR-IICT (Indian Institute of Chemical Technology), it was demonstrated in Tata Steel's Jamshedpur plant in 2016. http://www.thehindubusinessline.com/news/csiriict-scientists-develop-filtration-membrane-to-separate-harmful-chemicals-from-industrial-waste-water/article9597527.ece
