LiqTech wins $399k order for scrubber water treatment system

19 May 2017 07:57 GMT

Danish firm notes rise in customer interest since the announcement of the 2020 sulphur cap.



Denmark-headquartered LiqTech International, Inc. says it has received a $399,000 order for the company's system for the treatment of waste water from marine scrubbers.

Sune Mathiesen, LiqTech CEO, remarked: "We are pleased to receive another order for our marine scrubber water treatment systems. We are equally pleased to note that the activity level from our customers within the marine scrubber industry continues to increase.

"We have invested significant resources in the development of a standardized system for this application. We are pleased that our investments are being rewarded and we believe that we will continue to see a positive development in the sales of these systems."

From its facilities in Denmark, NYSE-listed LiqTech uses silicon carbide - one of the world's hardest materials - for the purification of liquids and gases.

Speaking last month after receiving a $480,000 order for its waste water treatment system for marine scrubbers, Mathiesen noted that the company had been working in the marine scrubber industry for almost three years and had experienced a rise in customer interest since the implementation of the 2020 sulphur cap in October.

Explaining the benefits of using silicon carbide, Aldo Petersen, chairman of LiqTech International, explained back in October 2014: "It has a very high pressure resistance. It is also PH-resistant from 0 to 14, so it can clean anything out of water; but because it's such a hard material, it can resist much higher pressure, and in doing that it can clean much higher volumes of water, much more efficiently."

"There are a lot of companies that have started to implement silicon carbide membranes into their applications," Petersen added.
