Polymem, a French maker of water filtration products, is building a new production line to make hollow-fiber membranes using Arkema’s nanostructured polyvinylidene fluoride polymer. The two joined forces in 2014 to develop the new membrane, which they say is more durable and better at filtering out bacteria and viruses than conventional membranes.
