Do you think that silicic sprays could help the wastewater industry?

I mean it’s possible. In theory, we could put a silicic spray on a membrane or some other filter and potentially improve its efficiency. I think the real potential for this type of technology is in the agricultural sector. When you spray crops with silicic spray, it reduces the water demands of that crop and can improve the quality of the harvest. If you combine the products our industry sends to farmers with the ability to use less water, then we can reduce runoff problems that are associated with nitrates or phosphorus.
