Spiral wound reverse osmosis and nanofiltration elements have been critical technologies in producing dairy ingredients for well over thirty years. While some streams were considered waste from dairies 30-40 years ago, innovations in technology have allowed these streams to be converted into valuable products. This has led to a growing market demand for products such as whey protein concentrate and whey protein isolate. Through the years innovations in reverse osmosis (RO) elements have played a large role in making dairies more profitable while also improving the quality of the products and helping the markets to grow.
