Lockheed Martin BlueLockheed Martin has signed an agreement with two oil and natural gas producers to evaluate the potential of a Lockheed-designed membrane technology to filter wastewater at oil drilling sites, Reuters reported Friday.

David Alexander writes Daniel Heller, vice president for sustainability technologies at Lockheed, said the company has been exploring the Perforene nano-based filtration system for applications in the petroleum and medical industries.

Lockheed developed and patented the system to remove salt from water.

“We can free flow salt water over our Perforene and it filters out the salt,” Heller told Reuters last week.

“Now we just have to figure out how to do it at scale and make it economically viable,” he added, according to the report.

Lockheed aims to commercialize the technology in the next five years.
