Unfortunately, our noses are also susceptible to airborne odors of a foul nature. When the trash is full of food waste, your dog relieves himself on the carpet, your shoes…

Reverse osmosis helps in treating and cleaning wastewater by removing contaminants at the molecular level.

How Reverse Osmosis Aids in Wastewater Treatment

We all learned about osmosis in high school science (or earlier). This is the process by which a solvent (such as water molecules) moves through a semipermeable membrane from a low-concentration solution on one side to an area of greater concentration on the other side in order to equalize the concentration on either side of…
