Bioinspired zMembranes

Adrian Brozell, zNano’s founder and chief scientist, invented cost competitive MF, UF, NF and RO zMembranes that improve performance across a variety of verticals (laundry, oil and gas) replacing ceramics with polymerics, among others.

Solving Customer Problems

The zNano technology team develops solutions to customer problems. It’s their only job.

zNano’s zMembranes (100% inorganic) are custom-designed to solve specific problems in separation technologies.

  • PAN membranes failing? zNano has successfully piloted replacements.

  • Fouling from fabric softeners? zNano has solved that problem for a customer in India.

  • Replacing ceramic membranes? zNano has successfully piloted polymeric replacements.

  • Reducing the cost of treating Produced Water? At a customer’s request, zNano will pilot NF designed to do that in Q1.

“Separating pollutants from water, fats from milk, dye from coloring clothes and polyester fiber from laundry water are just a few of the things my advanced separation technology can do.”


Nimble, Responsive, Disruptive

THE zNANO TEAM is multidisciplinary, versatile and insanely curious. At its core are an ingenious biophysicist, inorganic chemist, materials engineer and electrical engineer with impressive capabilities. While Adrian is the trusted link between zNano’s invisible product and the people who care about the technology, he is also the star that attracts top notch scientists contributing their own vertical knowledge bases.

zNANO’S MISSION is enabling water resilience and restoring water through technology.

Market Validations & Customers

zNano is solving water problems that would keep you up at night. It’s global. And it’s personal. zNano has worked with NASA, Admiral Maltings, Dutch Girl Cleaners and Concord Enviro to solve their problems.

  • zNano licenses its coatings to major companies;
  • zNano coats membranes for its own use and for others;
  • zNano works with leading technologists to solve their specific problems and monetize those solutions.
