Axiom Angewandte Prozesstechnik was founded in 1992 as a specialist in industrial applications of membrane technology. Besides employing reverse osmosis technology in water purification projects, Axiom carries out intensive research into gas permeation technology, and has secured numerous patents.
In a joint research project with Vienna University of Technology’s Institute of Chemical Engineering, Axiom developed new applications for membrane gas separation. These included the recovery of helium and hydrogen, the separation of carbon dioxide from natural gas, as well as biogas treatment. Axiom has steadily extended this area of its expertise, and has applied it with great commercial success, becoming a major supplier for the membrane gas separation process and a leading innovator in the field. Axiom sees membrane technology as one of tomorrow’s key technologies.
