AQUAPORIN READY TO INVEST IN PILOT PRODUCTION
Cleantech company Aquaporin A/S is now pushing development activities by initiating investment in production capacity to prepare for commercial sales of its Aquaporin Inside™ membranes by the end of 2013.
“We are experiencing significant success with our numerous test partners in Europe, US and Asia, who provide valuable feedback on the membranes they are testing. We use the feedback to optimize on our future product and adjust membrane specifications according to individual needs. New water companies are on a running basis approaching us to order membranes for various applications, – some of which we hadn’t even thought of ourselves. The market has certainly become aware of the opportunities the Aquaporin Inside™ Technology is offering and we are quickly heading towards real market introduction”, says CEO, Peter Holme Jensen.
So far, Aquaporin has been producing its Aquaporin Inside™ membranes in-house by a manual process. With technology and budget in place, the company is now ready to accelerate plans by investing in a high-tech automated pilot production unit, which will reduce production times, secure consistency in product quality and take the company to the next level.
“The next year we will be focusing on product maturation, customer relations and further development of our ground-breaking technology. Aquaporin Inside™ membranes will hit the market by the end of 2013 – and we are ready to take the challenge”, Peter Holme Jensen states.
