UF membrane cooperation agreed by inge and Aquasource

Germany’s inge GmbH and France’s Aquasource have agreed to enter into a strategic cooperation effective from April 2014, with each company focusing on their respective competences.

Aquasource, a technology division of Degrémont, will choose BASF-subsidiary inge‘s patented Multibore® membranes for all types of water where an ultrafiltration (UF) in-to-out technology is suitable. Within this cooperation, inge will concentrate on the development and production of UF membranes while Aquasource becomes a center of excellence for membrane systems.

Both partners are targeting a combination of technologies to provide customers with even better solutions. Aquasource provides engineering, processes and applications and selects the best membrane technology for the customers’ needs.

In the last two years BASF and inge have jointly defined several R&D projects in order to drive forward innovation in UF membranes
