Reverse osmosis membrane technology is a physical process used to concentrate liquids dissolved in liquids by reversing the natural osmosis process with pressure. This method was developed in the 1960s by the NASA space agency to prepare urine in ultrapure water in human spaceflight. Reverse osmosis is currently used in the medical, food and marine desalination industries, as this process is well suited to treat contaminated water in ultrapure water, i. to remove even the smallest molecular substances from the water.
The medium in which the concentration of a certain substance is to be reduced is separated from the medium by a semipermeable membrane in which the concentration is to be increased. This is subjected to a pressure which must be higher than the pressure which is created by the osmotic desire to balance the concentration. This allows the molecules of the solvent to migrate towards their “natural” osmotic propagation direction. The process pushes them into the compartment where dissolved matter is less concentrated.
