Microfiltration (MF) and ultrafiltration (UF) have become a viable option for the potable water treatment and the reuse of municipal and industrial wastewater effluents.

Polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) has been recognized as a popular material for the fabrication of MF/UF membranes due to its high mechanical strength and chemical resistance. Asahi Kasei is a pioneer of PVDF hollow fiber membrane, and we have successfully put PVDF membrane into a practical use in many applications and accumulated experiences for more than 20 years.
