New Product Developments UÊ i˜“>ÀŽ½ÃÊ Aquaporin A/S has signed a strategic cooperation agreement with the Singapore Membrane Technology Center to establish a subsidiary in Singapore in close cooperation with DHI and Nanyang Technological University. The project has received US$3 million in funding from Singapore’s Environment and Water Industry Development Council and will focus on aquaporin-based biomimetic membranes for water reuse and desalination. “This is a unique opportunity for Aquaporin to establish itself in Asia, which is one of the most interesting markets in terms of introducing new water purification technologies in a collaboration with some of the top experts in the world within membrane technology,” said Peter Holme Jensen, CEO of Aquaporin A/S. Aquaporin and its partners will establish the subsidiary in early 2010 in Singapore, with Aquaporin as the majority shareholder. Under the agreement, the new subsidiary will have full ownership of all future IPR and know-how generated in the Singapore project. Aquaporin is part of the M Goldschmidt Holding group. Aquaporin has recently been granted its first European patent 1 885 477 B1, entitled “Membrane for filtering of water”. www.aquaporin.dk, http://smtc.ntu.edu.sg and http://tinyurl.com/yfyk5lk UÊ Dow Water & Process Solutions’ next generation of DOW FILMTEC reverse osmosis (RO) membrane components for residential water treatment will be available globally during the second quarter of 2010. The four new residential RO elements will replace the existing product line of DOW FILMTEC solutions. All TW30-1812-24, -36, -50, -75 are NSF/ANSI 58-certified and meet both US Environmental Protection Agency and Safe Drinking Water Act standards. The new elements also offer trouble-free system startup and operation for under-the-sink and countertop home water purification systems. Each component has multiple anti-counterfeiting features to ensure customers are buying genuine DOW FILMTEC products. The features, including a hologram label, innovative brine seal design and multicolor permeate tube, aim to increase the visibility of the products and better protect the health and safety of its consumers. “Dow is pleased to introduce its next generation of DOW FILMTEC residential RO elements,

manufactured using a leading-edge automated fabrication process that has been enhanced with additional quality controls,” said Leticia Jensen, Dow Water & Process Solutions’ marketing manager, residential & commercial applications. “As a result, the new product line is precisely manufactured to rigorous, pre-defined specifications. It helps us deliver defect-free product and improve our service levels to meet increasing market demand while building our customers reputation in the market place and increasing consumers’ satisfaction.” All standard DOW FILMTEC residential elements are expected to transition to Dow’s new production line over the next 12 months. www.dow.com/liquidseps/ and www.dowwaterandprocess.com UÊ Siemens Water Technologies has introduced Nosogard infection control filters for the healthcare market. The Nosogard point-of-use infection control filters help prevent pathogens in water used in the healthcare industry. The 7, 14 or 30-day point-of-use sterile filters feature the combination of a 1.0 micron pre-filter and a 0.2 micron microporous membrane to remove water-borne pathogenic organisms lined to nosocomial infections. The Nosogard infection control filters are individually integrity tested, performance-validated and shipped in radiosterilised packaging with peel-able lids to maintain sterility. The 7-day and 14-day Nosogard infection control filters are validated to remove all organisms and the 30-day Nosogard filters are validated to remove legionella only, for 30 days. A 60-day Nosogard infection control filter is also available, which requires autoclaving on a daily basis to provide 60-day sterilization. www.water.siemens.com UÊ 3M’s new AP2-G filters use 53% less plastic than the original AP2 range. By using less plastic in production, the AP2-G filters reduce waste and present an environmentally responsible source of quality drinking water. The AP2-G filters retain the Sanitary Quick Change (SQC) fittings from the AP2 filter range, allowing for a straight swap without having to turn off the water supply. The technology in the AP2-G filters uses a smaller carbon block, matching the flow rate and capacity of the current AP2 filters. www.3m.com
