The new product line uses De.mem’s proprietary hollow fibre ultrafiltration and nanofiltration membrane technology as a key filter process to treat tap or municipal water prior to domestic consumption.

The system is installed at the point-of-use such as under a kitchen sink where the system treats water prior to it leaving the domestic tap.

The market for domestic point-of-use filter systems is estimated at US$24.5 billion annually worldwide by 2020.

Demonstrates strategy to commercialise membrane technology

De.mem’s CEO Andreas Kroell said: “The introduction of this product line builds on our stated strategy of developing a diverse range of superior membrane technologies for commercial and domestic / residential use.

“Following commercialisation, these domestic products will not only broaden our customer base significantly, but also deliver additional revenue streams.

“The company has a strong track record commercialising membrance technologies and will use its existing manufacturing capability, intellectual property, and technological expertise to ensure that its solutions are the highest quality for water filtration for domestic consumption."

Revenue guidance confirmed, growing order book

De.mem will commercialise the new product range through distribution partnerships initially targeting the Asia-Pacific region.

The new product line will be manufactured in De.mem’s Singapore facility using existing equipment.

Kroell added: “Discussions are advancing well with potential distributors for the Asia Pacific region and De.mem looks forward to updating shareholders as further developments materialise.

“We confirm CY2018 revenue guidance of $10-$12 million underpinned by a healthy, diversified and growing order book.”

<![CDATA[News - De.mem forecasting revenue growth of up to 245% this calendar year, shares rise ]]> De.mem Ltd (ASX:DEM) has forecast revenue for calendar year 2018 to be between $8 million to $10 million.

Compared to CY2017 revenue, which was $2.9 million, this forecast range represents growth of 185% to 245%.

Entry into Australian market through Akwa-Worx acquisition

De.mem entered the lucrative Australian market through the acquisition of Akwa-Worx on 18 September 2017, one of many growth initiatives since IPO.

Andreas Kroell, CEO, said: “Since our IPO in April 2017, De.mem has continued its rapid expansion with important growth milestones achieved.”

On the path to profitability, acquisition opportunities

De.mem is well funded with a healthy cash balance, and together with a reduced cash burn and a growing revenue base, it is well positioned to become cash flow positive in the near term.

The company continues to assess growth opportunities in the water and wastewater technology sector, a space which is still highly fragmented and has considerable scope for consolidation.

<![CDATA[News - De.mem founding member of Singapore water treatment technology consortium ]]> 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.
