AQUAPORIN ASIA ENTERS THE SINGAPORE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT BOARD’S FAST-TECH INCUBATION SCHEME
With the commencement of the Fast-Tech incubation scheme, Aquaporin Asia has reached a major milestone in its ongoing activities in Singapore towards maturing and commercializing the Aquaporin Inside™ reverse osmosis (RO) membrane technology – a technology pioneered in a recent (2009-2013) research collaboration between Aquaporin, the Singapore Membrane Technology Center (SMTC) at Nanyang Technological University (NTU), and DHI Singapore funded by Singapore’s Environment and Water Industry Development Council (EWI).
Says Mark Perry, Chief Operating Officer of Aquaporin Asia: “The funding we receive from the Singapore Economic Development Board over the next two years will allow us to hire additional manpower and invest in automated production equipment, which will contribute tremendously to accelerating the maturation and commercialization of the Aquaporin Inside™ RO membrane technology”. Mark Perry continues: “In addition to the financial incentive from EDB, Aquaporin Asia will also greatly benefit from the mentoring capacity of NTU Ventures through their involvement as designated water incubator”.
