NX Filtration receives order from GreenTech for full-scale drinking water plant in China

NX Filtration, the global provider of direct nanofiltration (dNF) membrane technology for pure and affordable water, was selected by GreenTech Environmental, a publicly listed company in advanced water treatment and wastewater recycling in China, to supply its dNF membranes for large-scale water supply project in China.

The commercial agreement follows a pilot programme of about one year, in which NX Filtration’s dNF technology was tested on the removal of emerging micropollutants from surface waters in China. The new full-scale project developments will use dNF membranes to produce drinking water from surface water, which is an important source for water production across China.

In anticipation of additional large-scale drinking water projects in China, GreenTech and NX Filtration also concluded a partnership agreement that forms the basis for further expansion across China. Greentech has started the development of standard pre-engineered modular systems, each with a capacity of 10,000m3/day, based on NX Filtration’s dNF technology. These standard building blocks will enable fast delivery of future large-scale projects.

Michiel Staatsen, CEO at NX Filtration, said: “We bring our relationship with GreenTech to the next stage, engaging in a Channel Partnership Agreement and supplying our technology for a first large-scale dNF-based drinking water project in China.”
