Membrana signs with wine
Membrana has signed an agreement with Memstar", a division of Australian wine technology specialists Wine Network, which allows Memstar worldwide sales and distribution rights for Liqui- Cel® Membrane Perstractors". Memstar has developed a patent-pending method for removing alcohol from wine without stripping away other essential components. It uses a two-stage process combining reverse osmosis and the Liqui-Cel system. Perstractors are the key to the process of evaporative perstraction used by Memstar for lowering the alcohol content of a wine. Higher alcohol content gives wine a hot and harsh taste and masks desirable fruit flavors.
