Background of Starting Sales of In-vehicle Ceramic Membrane Filtration System
METAWATER's in-vehicle ceramic membrane filtration system is capable of providing a stable supply of high-quality, safe, purified drinking water even from highly turbid and changeable raw water quality. This mobile water purification equipment capitalizes on the flexible features of the ceramic membrane element which make it possible for it to be used even in a small space. METAWATER has been delivering the in-vehicle water purifying system mainly to developing countries since the system can be mobilized any time natural disasters such as flooding occur and can be used as water purifying facilities in dispersed communities.
METAWATER will start selling the in-vehicle ceramic membrane filtration system in Myanmar in cooperation with Trendy Group, which has business offices in Nagoya, Aichi and Yangon, Myanmar and operates in the automobile and water treatment industries. A ceremony was held today to mark the occasion in Yangon, inviting Yangon City Mayor, Mr. U Hla Myint, and other important persons in the city and state.
