Memsift Innovations, a Singapore-based industrial liquid-waste treatment specialist, has sealed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Angstroms, a South Korean company working on industrial water treatment and solvent recovery, to explore the market opportunities for Memsift technologies in South Korea through pilot trials.
Memsift’s thermal separation process and membranes are based on technologies that provide benefits over traditional brine treatment and zero liquid discharge solutions. Memsift’s TS-30 system uses a thermodynamic principle based on thermal separation process and a membrane Stomate that brings down the industrial effluents treatment cost.
Dr J. Antony Prince, founder and CEO for Memsift Innovations, said: “Memsift technologies are receiving good traction from the international market, and this agreement will allow us to expand our activities in the South Korean market. Similar to Singapore, the South Korean market is also driven by technology and innovations, and this will allow us to introduce our products in that market for early adoption before entering into the other regional markets.”
Memsift received an interest from Angstroms to present its products in the South Korean market. Angstroms has been working on industrial effluent treatment and solvent recovery through vapour permeation membrane technologies and possesses the technical understanding and the expertise to present Memsift products in the market. Under the agreement, Angstroms will introduce Memsift products to its customer base in South Korea, and has already received interest from some of their existing customers to perform onsite pilot trials.
Kim Baekahm, executive director and CEO of Angstroms, concluded: “We see that the advantages of Memsift’s products over the traditional industrial liquid-waste treatment methods, and it could be applied in some of our current products. This agreement will allow us to do the pilot trials at our customer site, and let them experience the technologies.”
