The demand for clean, safe water has brought membrane technology to the forefront of applications in water treatment. Primarily through size exclusion, membranes provide a physical barrier against colloidal contaminants, disinfection by-product precursors, and pathogens, compared to conventional filtration. The development of self-healing membranes could enhance resiliency and make membrane treatment a viable option for small and decentralized systems. This cutting-edge technology would be a significant breakthrough in reducing and simplifying the cost of integrity monitoring and damaged membrane replacement in water reuse systems. Furthermore, self-healing membranes have the potential to spur innovation in the field of water filtration.
