This is the first commercial EPC contract for this Singapore based start-up, to treat 730 m3/year industrial liquid waste.

Singapore: Memsift bags its first commercial Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract with a six digit Singapore dollars value. The contract will enable the company to design and develop a 730 m3/year TS-30™ Minimum Liquid Discharge (MLD) system to treat industrial liquid waste for their client in Malaysia. In addition, the project will help their client to save 90% of the disposal cost.

Early this year Memsift conducted a case study together with its client using their waste effluent and has proved that, the TS-30™ system reduces the liquid waste volume by 90% and the treated water meets their client’s requirements. Based on the very positive outcome, Memsift secured this project said Dr. J Antony Prince, Founder of Memsift Innovations Pte Ltd.

Memsift’s TS-30™ MLD system is based on a patent-pending thermal membrane process that operate relatively low temperature and pressure compared to the conventional thermal and pressure driven membrane process. Memsift uses a unique hydrophobic hollow fibre membrane in the system that allows water in vapor form but not in liquid form. Hence, all the non-volatile inorganic salts and particles will remain in the waste effluent and only the clean water will be recovered through the membrane thus the volume of the waste effluent will be reduced.

“We believe that this project will help us to get commercial traction for our brine treatment and zero liquid discharge solutions from the regional and the global market. We are planning to serve our customers through Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC) and Build Own Operate (BOO) business models in the future,” explains Dr. Prince.

Memsift Innovations Pte Ltd is a technology-based start-up registered in Singapore. Memsift is providing solutions for high strength industrial effluent treatment, desalination, aqueous/organic separations and heat and mass transfer process and applications using their proprietary technologies.
