Molecular Filtration History

Molecular Filtration, Inc.  was conceived by Felipe Lembcke a chemical engineer in 1998.

By 2000 Dr. Eduardo Gomez-Maqueo joined the company. The idea was to solve what had emerged as one of the biggest problems in the industry - "The removal of organics with chemical treatment"  

By July 2001, and after a long process of studying and testing membrane technologies, they decided to incorporate tubular ceramic membranes for the pretreatment of fluids. 

For almost three years, they researched the possibilities of separating organics from fluids and achieving molecular filtration processes by the use of tubular ceramic membranes and chemical intervention on the feed water.

In 2004 they officially incorporated Molecular Filtration, Inc. in the State of Texas. To become the first company in the world to do filtration at the molecular level.


This new ceramic membrane combines innovative design features and unique materials of construction to provide the maximum organic rejection in conjuction with our proprietary chemical intervention (Chemical Injection) in the feed water that provides superb capabilities to separate organics in comparison to the conventional ceramic membrane process.
