Hitachi in Libyan MBR tie-up

Libyan water technology company El Zulal announced on 21 July 2010 that it has signed a sales and marketing agreement with Hitachi of Japan to distribute Hitachi’s membrane bioreactor (MBR) product range in Libya.

El Zulal currently offers packaged sea- and brackish-water reverse-osmosis desalination and wastewater treatment plants.

Iftikhar ul Haq, CEO of El Zulal, noticed the growing need for MBR packaged solutions in Libya and has for some time been seeking the ideal product solution for his clients. He chose Hitachi’s MBR line for its superior quality and reliable compact flat membranes with ease of operation and low maintenance, as it offers the highest levels of technology, quality and value.
