  • LG Chem appoints Desalytics as official partner for NanoH2O™ RO products in sub-Saharan Africa

About the entity

LG Chem
Having continued to grow over 7 decades since founded in 1947, LG Chem is literally the company leading the chemical industry in Korea. The company has built the global network for production, sales and R&D.

Residents and businesses in 20 Sub-Saharan countries will soon have more reliable access to clean water, thanks to a new partnership between LG Chem / LG Water Solutions and Desalytics Water Solutions.

The agreement designates Desalytics Water Solutions as official channel partner of LG Chem's NanoH2O™ reverse osmosis (RO) membrane products, which help to turn seawater and brackish water into potable and process water.

Having recently completed several acquisitions in the area to optimize its operations, Desaltyics is set to be present in 20 Sub-Saharan countries by 2022.

The company will improve access to the technology in each country, ensuring a more secure supply of clean water for local communities and industrial end-users.

In additional to supplying and servicing LG Chem's NanoH2O™ RO membrane technologies, Desalytics will also provide further technical expertise, products and support.

Walid Khoury, General Manager of Desalytics Holdings, said: “Sub-Saharan Africa has been a historically underserved market, which has led to a challenging environment when it comes to effective management of drinking, process and wastewater.

“Desalytics was established with the aim of helping young African entrepreneurs to provide communities with reliable water and improve their processes whiling maximise returns.

“Our partnership with LG Chem / Water Solutions is another big step towards helping industries and municipalities in these countries to safely access the water that they need.” 

Massimiliano (Max) Gennari, Senior Sales Director for Europe & Africa at LG Chem, said: "We are delighted to be working with Desalytics and are confident in their commitment to working closely with local businesses and communities.

“Sub-Saharan Africa is an emerging market, where RO is becoming an essential technology for sustainable development, and we are looking forward to the growth of both of our firms through this collaboration."
