Danish water technology company Aquaporin and Germany’s Berghof Membranes have been working on tubular forward osmosis for some time.
Wafilin Systems will collect testimonies for the new, jointly developed Berghof Hyperflux and Aquaporin Inside food-ready Tubular Forward Osmosis (Food TFO) membranes in order to commercialise them.
“We are pleased to welcome Wafilin Systems to our close collaboration with Berghof Membranes,” said Matt Boczkowski, CEO Of Aquaporin. “The goal of this expanded team is to use each other’s strengths to deliver a tailored solution to the food and beverage industry to develop high-quality concentrates and become more energy-efficient and sustainable. With our solution, food and beverage manufacturers can offer novel products while reducing their CO2 footprint and optimising transportation costs thanks to significantly reduced volumes.”
“We are firmly convinced that the Food TFO membranes we have developed with Aquaporin provide unique benefits, especially for the food and beverage industry,” said Eric Wildeboer, managing director of Berghof Membranes. “Therefore, we are happy to have Wafilin Systems onboard and look forward to strengthening our commercial efforts and making our technology even better by using the testimonials and experiences Wafilin Systems will collect from customers.”
