Worldwide Business with kathy ireland®: See PolyCera® Discuss How They’re Renewing Water With Their Innovative Membrane Technology 2

Los Angeles, CA – November 7, 2018 — Worldwide Business with kathy ireland® is pleased to announce an exclusive interview with Simon Marshall, President and CEO of PolyCera®, Inc., to discuss the company’s robust, easy-to-clean membranes that extend the range of performance beyond conventional ceramic and polymeric membranes.

PolyCera membranes are engineered with an organic metal coating derived from Nobel Prize winning polymer chemistry developed into membrane materials at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and the California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI). PolyCera polymer materials are 100% organic, but they exhibit unique electronic behavior that shifts from metal-like conducting to metal oxide-like semi-conducting to plastic-like insulating properties. These materials are neither conventional polymers nor are they traditional metals or metal-oxide ceramics. PolyCera goes beyond traditional polymeric and ceramic materials.

Marshall says that PolyCera membranes are a game-changer for the industry. He explains, “The industry has been trying to find a polymeric membrane at a price point and performance that can compete with ceramics in difficult-to-treat applications. Ceramic membranes are able to deal with much higher temperatures, but they’re very expensive. What our team set out to do was to develop a polymeric membrane that could operate similar to a ceramic, but at a price point that was far more competitive.”

PolyCera membranes, now available for ultrafiltration and nanofiltration, are being used by customers in a wide array of projects and applications on six continents.

JL Haber, Vice President of Programming for Worldwide Business with kathy ireland®, is thrilled to feature PolyCera. He says, “When it comes to renewing water, there’s no company quite like PolyCera. This innovative company can help existing or upcoming water treatment facilities and systems in a whole new way. We’re honored to have PolyCera on our show.”
