The platform will be looking at how to reduce the level of small organic molecules in dairy wastewater. By using this technology on dairy process-water streams, the load on our water cleaning units will decrease significantly,’ commented Thorfinn Thordarson, Senior Project Manager, Arla Foods. ‘Aquaporin Inside membranes will not only improve the quality of water extracted, but also reduce the cost of extracting water.’ For Peter Holme Jensen, Chief Executive Officer, Aquaporin, the approval of this project comes at an opportune time as the company is heading towards industrial production of its first generation of Aquaporin Inside membranes. He said: ‘We see Aquaporin as a potential Novozymes within water, as our product holds so much commercial potential. Our long-term goal is to become the global com- mercial market leader in the field of biomi- metics – nothing less.’ ‘The recognition from the DNATF will add new brains and more people to our internal team of experts and we will benefit significant- ly from the professional and experienced project partners over the coming years of the collaboration.

Toray acquires new building to fulfil growing sales and storage requirements

Toray Membrane USA Inc (TMUS), a producer of membranes for water

purification and wastewater reclama-tion, has purchased a building located adjacent to its existing manufacturing facility in Poway, California, USA.

Located on Thatcher Court, it will be used to fulfil the company’s growing sales and storage requirements. The 1394-m2 (15 000-ft2) build-ing will be used as a finished goods warehouse for membrane bioreactor, hollow fibre, and dairy, food and beverage, spiral reverse osmosis and ultrafiltration membrane elements.
