Final Report - MEMBAQ (Incorporation of Aquaporins in Membranes for Industrial Applications)

Project ID: 33234
Funded under: FP6-NMP

Abstract

The aquaporins are extremely efficient protein channels that exist in all living cells and transport pure water. The MEMBAQ project, funded under the European Commission's Sixth Framework Programme (FP6), investigated the potential for industrial exploitation of these proteins through their incorporation in industrial membranes for water filtration and resulted in the development of an innovative technology.

This final activity report provides an overview of MEMBAQ background and summarises the project objectives. Moreover, the undertaken activities are presented and the outcomes of the various work packages are highlighted. Finally, the document refers to MEMBAQ publishable results and pinpoints the derived conclusions.
