Memsift to recover chemicals from industrial effluent in Singapore

Memsift Innovations Pte Ltd has secured a new contract to build a 3.5 million litres per year chemical recovery plant in Singapore using its proprietary TS-30 improved membrane distillation technology.

The project, which will be commissioned in the second quarter of 2023, can be potentially scaled up to 14 million litres per year in two phases.

Dr J Antony Prince, founder and CEO of Memsift Innovations, said: “This is a key milestone in Memsift’s journey helping the high value manufacturing industries to close their toxic liquid-waste loop that allows our clients to eliminate the disposal cost and recover resources while reducing the overall carbon footprint to meet their internal ESG targets.”

Memsift technologies recover more than 95% of water and up to 100% of chemicals from industrial liquid-waste streams. The modular decentralized unit can treat the waste where it is generated. This decentralized concept allows companies to isolate the waste streams and recover the resources to use back in the industrial process that makes a resource circular economy. Memsift says that the current project may achieve a negative carbon footprint by considering the energy savings (up to 80% compared to the traditional multi-stage distillation process) and the manufacturing carbon footprint of the chemicals to be recovered.
