NX Filtration founder wins AMTA 2024 Hall of Fame award for advancing clean water solutions.

Erik Roesink, the Founder and CTO of NX Filtration, has been honored with the AMTA 2024 Hall of Fame award for his commitment to improving access to clean and cost-effective water.

Roesink has been a pioneer in membrane technology, particularly in the advancement of hollow fiber polyethersulfone (PES) membranes for microfiltration, ultrafiltration (UF), and nanofiltration applications globally. His journey commenced in 1985 at X-flow in the Netherlands, where he played a pivotal role in transforming membrane technology.

Transitioning to a professorship at the University of Enschede, Roesink continued his groundbreaking work, focusing on hollow fiber membranes with nanofiltration properties. His ultimate goal was to introduce innovative membrane technology capable of addressing worldwide water challenges, specifically micropollutants, while reducing energy and chemical usage.

Roesink’s dedication culminated in the establishment of NX Filtration in 2016, marking a significant milestone in the industry. NX Filtration has since become a leading provider of hollow fiber nanofiltration (HFNF) membrane technology for global applications in pure water production and wastewater reuse.

Under Roesink’s leadership, NX Filtration’s HFNF membranes have proven effective in eliminating micropollutants like pesticides, hormones, per- and polyfluorinated substances (PFAS), pharmaceuticals, colorants, bacteria, and viruses.

These accomplishments have been achieved with lower energy consumption and chemical usage compared to conventional UF and reverse osmosis (RO) membrane combinations.
