Title (EN) FILTER MATERIALS WITH BIOCIDAL PHYTOCHEMICAL AGENTS
(FR) MATERIAUX FILTRANTS AVEC AGENTS PHYTOCHIMIQUES BIOCIDES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)This invention relates to filter membranes or coatings incorporating environmentally benign biocidal phytochemical compositions that can prevent or reduce fouling caused by microbial biofÊlms, bacteria, algae, fungi, or other unwanted fouling organisms. The invention particularly provides a phytochemical composition encompassing grapefruit seed extract, pomegranate extract, capsaicin and menthol. The phytochemical compositions may directly inhibit the growth of an invasive organism or inhibit the establishment of a biofilm substrate. Additional phytochemicals may also be used. The phytochemical compositions may be incorporated directly into the filter material, microencapsulated or be applied within a coating layer on an underlying porous filtration substrate.
(FR)L'invention concerne des membranes ou revêtements filtrants comprenant des compositions phytochimiques biocides inoffensives pour l'environnement permettant de prévenir ou de réduire les salissures causées par les biofilms microbiens, les bactéries, les algues, les champignons ou d'autres organismes encroûtants indésirables. L'invention concerne notamment une composition phytochimique renfermant un extrait de pépins de pamplemousse, un extrait de grenade, de la capsicine et du menthol. Les compositions phytochimiques peuvent directement inhiber la croissance d'un organisme invasif ou empêcher la formation d'un substrat de biofilm. On peut également utiliser des agents phytochimiques additionnels. Les compositions phytochimiques peuvent être incorporées directement dans le matériau filtrant, microencapsulées ou appliquées dans une couche de revêtement sur un substrat de filtration poreux sous-jacent.
