KEY PATENTS GRANTED FOR THE AQUAPORIN INSIDE® HOLLOW FIBER MEMBRANE MODULES

Membrane modules come in different forms, from thin hollow fibers and spiral wound flat sheets to tubes and plate-and-frame. The first Aquaporin Inside® Forward Osmosis products are based on hollow fibers, due the high packing density, production economy and unique rejection properties we have achieved.

Now, an important patent family for our hollow fiber products has been granted by the European Patent office as EP2943270 and the US counterpart US20180625 has proceeded to grant in July 2018.

The grant of these key patents confirms again the strength and breadth of the intellectual property rights protection of  the Aquaporin Inside® technology platform.
