LiqTech International, Inc. Announces A New Product To Its Portfolio, SiC Membrane Discs

BALLERUP, Denmark, Feb. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- LiqTech International, Inc. (OTCQX: LIQT) ("LiqTech") is pleased to announce the newest product to the Company's portfolio, SiC membrane discs.

The membrane disc system is based on a principle of creating cross-flow by rotating the membrane as an alternative to pumping the liquid across the membrane in the traditional tubular setup. Energy consumption is only 17% compared to regular cross-flow.

The membrane disc system can handle liquids with high solid content and will therefore be used in applications such as wastewater treatment, manure concentration and pharmaceuticals. The application is also suitable in algae dewatering before final extraction of Omega 3 and other high-value content for production of feed or bio ethanol. These applications are growing markets, and all face a continuous challenge in finding energy-effective treatment solutions. LiqTech believes that its SiC membrane discs will set the standard for requirements in future system design, due to higher flux and better chemical resistance at a comparable price to other solutions. The market for membrane discs has strong potential alongside LiqTech's other tubular and flat sheet membranes.

The product was developed with funding from the Danish foundation for Green Development and Demonstration Program ( GUDP – Groen udvikling og demonstrations program). The foundation has partially funded the development of the SiC membrane discs for concentration of manure, however, LiqTech retains full ownership of the intellectual property. Concentration of manure will enhance the production of biogas compared to gasification on raw manure, and will limit the CO 2 emission from transportation of the untreated manure prior to the gasification.

The membrane disc product will be marketed through a strategic partnership with an experienced system integrator. The system integrator has a long history in designing membrane disc equipment and believes that LiqTech SiC discs can reduce the system cost, efficiency and footprint, which are the key parameters in most filtration applications.
