PolyCera®, Inc., which designs and manufactures innovative organic metal membrane technology solutions serving the global water, wastewater and process separation markets, will be featured on Worldwide Business with kathy ireland®.

In an exclusive interview that will air on Fox Business Network as sponsored content and on Bloomberg International, PolyCera’s President and CEO Simon Marshall discusses the company's robust, easy-to-clean membranes that extend the range of performance beyond conventional ceramic and polymeric membranes.

Described by Marshall as a game-changer for the industry, PolyCera membranes go beyond the performance of traditional membrane materials with their ability to treat and renew challenging waters and wastewaters.

"PolyCera membranes are unlike anything else we have seen. They achieve a goal that has long eluded the industry: delivering a membrane that provides the robustness and performance of ceramic membranes in difficult-to-treat applications but at a competitive price point that is more reflective of traditional polymeric membranes," he noted.

In fact, PolyCera is a totally new type of membrane – neither a conventional polymer nor traditional metal or metal-oxide ceramic. PolyCera is 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 exhibits unique electronic behavior that shifts from metal-like conducting to metal oxide-like semi-conducting to plastic-like insulating properties.

Now available for ultrafiltration and nanofiltration, PolyCera membranes are being used in a wide array of projects on six continents. The company recently introduced several new iterations of its membranes, creating a highly differentiated portfolio to address specific industry and application requirements in the oil & gas, food & beverage, and process separation markets. Further product development is already underway.

JL Haber, Vice President of Programming for Worldwide Business with kathy ireland®, is thrilled to feature PolyCera. He said, "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."
