The consortium will connect research centres with small and medium enterprises

De.mem Ltd (ASX:DEM) is participating in a new Singapore Government initiative that aims to promote the use of innovations in water treatment.

The company is a founding member of Singapore National Membrane Consortium, which will promote the research, collaboration and commercialisation of membrane technologies.

This consortium will connect Singaporean research centres with small and medium enterprises such as De.mem that utilise membrane technology research to meet industry needs.

Capability to manufacture membranes

As one of the very few companies that can manufacture membranes in house, De.mem is one of 15 founding members of the consortium.

De.mem is a Singaporean-Australian decentralised water and waste-water treatment business with international operations.

Licensed proprietary technologies

The company has licensed a number of proprietary technologies from its research and development partner, Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University.

This includes a novel low-pressure hollow fibre nanofiltration membrane, which the company exclusively licensed from the university in June 2016.

The membrane allows for lower operating costs and capital expenditure compared to other conventional water treatment technologies.

Factory is established

De.mem has set up a factory for production of the membrane and other types of hollow fibre membranes.

Nanyang University’s Singapore Membrane Technology Centre is one of the research centres that will benefit from the consortium.

Another is the Membrane Science and Technology Consortium at the National University of Singapore.
