With the development of society and the advancement of various technologies, the development of industry has been promoted, and the problem of environmental pollution has arisen to a certain extent. It is particularly necessary to strengthen water treatment in environmental engineering. The application of ultrafiltration membrane technology will help the sewage to be thoroughly filtered and purified, and effectively ensure that the filtered water quality meets the basic detection standards of environmental engineering. Therefore, when analyzing ultrafiltration membrane technology for water treatment in environmental engineering, this paper further analyzes the application points of ultrafiltration membrane technology in environmental engineering treatment from the common technology types and application status.
