LiqTech International, Inc. Announces A New Ceramic Flat Sheet Membrane Product

BALLERUP, Denmark, March 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- LiqTech International, Inc. (OTCQX: LIQT) ("LiqTech") is pleased to announce that the Company has launched a new state-of-the-art Silicon Carbide (SiC) Flat Sheet Membrane (FSM) disc for Membrane Bioreactors (MBR) and Moving Bed Bioreactors (MBBR) for wastewater treatment.

The FSM uses the outside-in filtration principle. This allows either a pressurized mode or a vacuum suction mode of operation which reduces the cost of installation. The FSM module is submerged in a tank containing dirty water and by applying moderate suction pressure, clean water is produced. This configuration is mainly used in modern MBR and MBBR wastewater treatment systems and reduces the strain on housings, pumps and controls. With this new expansion of the product portfolio, LiqTech is able to cover a wider spectrum of the market. The LiqTech tubular filter is suited for low-solid content feeds, while the FSM is better suited for higher-solid content applications, and our rotating discs target very high solid content feeds.

The high clean-water permeability of the SiC material, being around 20 times more permeable than conventional polymeric 0.1um UF membranes and 4 times more permeable than a-Al2O3 0.1um UF membranes (competing ceramic material),  allows compact systems that save valuable footprint for our customers.

The FSM targets the MBR and MBBR waste water treatment market which is among the most important applications in membrane technology. The MBR market reached a size of about US $800 million in 2011 and is expected to grow at approximately 20% per year to exceed $3 billion in 2018.

The new LiqTech technology offers a flexible high-performance solution with the outstanding material advantages of SiC, providing customers ultra-compact systems with the reliability and robustness of a ceramic membrane.

LiqTech has entered into cooperation agreements with two system integrators with specific know-how and market access to develop market-driven products with what we believe to be the best value proposition. LiqTech currently expects to generate material revenue from the sales of the Flat Sheet Membranes in 2013.
