Toray to supply RO and UF membranes to Brazil’s largest SWRO plant acquired Woongjin Chemicals (CSM)
Toray’s ROMEMBRA™ RO and TORAYFIL™ UF membrane technologies have been selected for a new seawater desalination facility in Brazil, which is set to become the largest in the country. ArcelorMittal (brasil.arcelormittal.com), currently the largest producer of steel in the world, contracted Fluence Corporation (fluencecorp.com) for the design, engineering, and construction contract through an international tender process. Expected to be operational by the fourth quarter of 2020, the plant will have an initial capacity to treat 12,000 m3/day, expandable to 24,000 and 36,000 m3/day, and with an estimated value of US$10 million dollars. Industries Japan acquired 100 % of the shares from Woongjin Chemicals (CSM) and consolidated the company into Toray group. Toray Membrane Europe is the sales organization for all Toray membrane products in water treatment and process applications.
