Lifequest World Corp (“LQWC) has entered into an exclusive agency agreement with Acumen Engineering Ltd. to introduce industrial wastewater treatment solutions in Bangladesh. The Company has successfully introduced its Biopipe sewage wastewater treatment solution into Bangladesh through a separate joint venture.
Max Khan, the CEO of Lifequest said, “Our mission is to become the platform for disruptive and scalable wastewater treatment technologies. We have added Abrimix to our platform and in advance discussions to add another solution. According to Water Integrity Network, Bangladesh has approximately 1700 washing, dyeing and finishing factories that manufacture fabric for export. For every ton of fabric, they consume 9,500 gallons of water, 85% of which is discharged as wastewater causing massive pollution. There is growing pressure on manufacturers from garment importers, consumers and government to eliminate pollution and go to complete re-use. We believe that our technology solutions can make a difference.”
Ikball Hossain Russel, Director of Acumen stated “we are excited to represent Lifequest’s ETP and WTP treatment solutions in Bangladesh. Our initial focus will be on the textile sector because Bangladesh is the 2nd largest exporter of ready-made garments (RMG) after China and movement towards Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) is forcing manufactures to seek innovative and effective solutions. Our core competency is in wastewater treatment and we have several opportunities in hand and expect to implement one of Lifequest’s solutions in the near future.”
