INTRODUCTION TO NANOFILTRATION
The natural surface water, especially waters that are available through rivers, is the main source of healthy water for the living beings throughout the world from ancient days as it consists of all essential minerals. With industrialization and globalization taking over every part of the world, gradually even the most prominent rivers have been polluted in all parts of the world. Although there are lots of technologies to filter and clean our water, nanofiltration (NF) has been chosen to transform river water into healthy water due to its unique advantages of retaining optimum TDS (with essential minerals required for human body), consuming of lower energy, and no usage of any chemicals. The prominent parameters of surface water and macro/microminerals of treated water have been analyzed. It is shown that NF is better in producing healthy water with high flux by consuming low energy.

WHAT IS NANOFILTRATION WATER TREATMENT
AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
BENEFITS OF NANOFILTRATION
- 500% lower discharge and waste water than typical reverse osmosis systems
- Removal of heavy metals
- Reduction of water hardness/TDS+
- Removal of bacteria, VOC’s, viral contaminants, and pesticides
- Reduction of nitrates and sulfides
- Reduction of salt content (brackish water)
- Chemical-free filtration
- Ideal for municipal water supply, well water, river and rain water
- Removes iron, lime and other problem causing chemicals often neglected by water softeners
