Inopor and Fraunhofer IKTS have been selected to jointly receive The American Ceramic Society's Corporate Environmental Achievement Award.

Rauschert's subsidiary Inopor and Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS have been awarded for the development of ceramic nanofiltration membranes for efficient water treatment. Recognition of this achievement was given at The American Ceramic Society's Honors and Awards Banquet at the 117th Annual Meeting on Monday, October 5, 2015 in Columbus, Ohio.

Ceramic filtration membranes are used for:

  • processing of coolants and lubricants
  • recycling of degreasing and rinsing baths
  • separation of substances in chemical and pharmaceutical industries
  • clarification of fruit juices, wine and beer
  • treatment of potable water from surface and ground water

We are very proud to receive this highly renowned award for our innovative development.
