Research work done at the University of Twente, in The Netherlands, which aimed to understand how different polyelectrolyte multilayers can be used to make hollow-fibre membranes, has resulted in the development of a "straw membrane" that removes micro-pollutants, such as pharmaceuticals residues, from drinking water. Furthermore, by making it possible to purify water in a single process step, it permits cheaper and more efficient water purification.
