Singapore-based Memsift Innovations Pte Ltd has entered into a strategic partnership with Beijing China Science Resources and Environmental Technology Co Ltd (CSRE) to work together on solutions for industrial liquid-waste volume reduction, brine treatment, zero liquid discharge and resource recovery in China.

Memsift is the developer and manufacturer of the vapour transfer membrane Stomate and the thermal membrane system TS-30, while CSRE is an environmental technology and service provider for high strength industrial effluents treatment in China, using plate-frame vacuum multi effect membrane distillation (V-MEMD) technology.

The partnership includes a close commercial collaboration between the two companies, optimizing commercial synergies and making use of the complementary geographical presence and client bases in China and the region. It will also allow the companies to conduct joint pilot and commercial projects in China.

Memsift says that its technologies could complement CSRE’s technologies by expanding applications in many industry sectors like radioactive effluents and Chinese medicine.

“China is one of the biggest markets for our products in the region,” said Dr J Antony Prince, founder and CEO of Memsift Innovations. “Through this strategic partnership, Memsift will be able to access the tremendous market with our cutting-edge technologies. It really combines the best of both worlds and to help our clients with advanced brine treatment and zero liquid discharge solutions. We are very excited about the opportunity to work with CSRE and the important commercial opportunities it presents to our companies.”.

“CSRE has successfully commercialized plate-frame membrane distillation technology in various applications and completed several engineering projects in China,” said Dr Gao Yonggang, technical director of CSRE. “Through this strategic partnership we will be able to bring and commercialize the innovative hollow fibre membrane based membrane distillation technologies to our clients with a larger and better product offering, and provide more optional membrane distillation technologies for different applications, different types of waste water, and different requirements from potential clients in China.”
