About the entity

AQUAPORIN
Aquaporin A/S is a global water technology company located in Kongens Lyngby, Denmark. Aquaporin is dedicated to revolutionizing water purification through the use of industrial biotechnological techniques and thinking.

Aquaporin, an innovative water technology company dedicated to rethinking water filtration with biotechnology, announced that Aquaporin and PUB, Singapore's National Water Agency, are partnering to develop the world's first biomimetic low-energy Aquaporin Inside® membrane demonstration for NEWater.

A total of 504 CLEAR Brackish Water Reverse Osmosis (BWRO) modules from Aquaporin will be implemented at one of PUB’s NEWater production facilities, with a capacity of 1.7 million imperial gallons per day. This will demonstrate the Aquaporin Inside® technology's ability to save energy and validate the technology for implementation in PUB's future membrane replacement projects.

The Aquaporin Inside® CLEAR products feature the world's first and only biomimetic BWRO membranes

Matt Boczkowski, Aquaporin's Chief Executive Officer, says: "We are grateful to have the opportunity to work with an exceptional and experienced partner such as PUB. The collaboration has been a rewarding journey, and we are excited about the prospects of our partnership. We will continue developing water solutions through innovation that will benefit PUB and the people of Singapore."

The Aquaporin Inside® CLEAR products feature the world's first and only biomimetic BWRO membranes. The Aquaporin Inside® technology inspires itself from nature's way of filtering water by incorporating biotech-based protein water channels into a filtration membrane, offering best-in-class flow rates, high rejection of contaminants, and reliable long-term performance.

NEWater is one of Singapore's four National Taps and a key pillar in building a diversified and sustainable water supply, producing ultra-clean, high-grade reclaimed water.
