METAWATER Has Decided to Develop Ceramic Membrane Filtration Equipment for Emergency Use as Its 10th Anniversary Social Contribution Project
METAWATER Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo; President: Yasushi Nakamura; hereinafter referred to as “METAWATER”) is pleased to announce that it has decided to develop portable ceramic membrane filtration equipment for emergency use using the ceramic membrane, one of its flagship technologies, as its 10th anniversary social contribution project. METAWATER already provides a mobile ceramic membrane filtration equipment as a source of emergency drinking water and to expand the use of the filtration system in areas where water supply services are not available such in Africa and Southeast Asia.

We will lease the system to local governments and other public entities upon request free of charge, and deploy the system to our domestic sites to allow us to lease it flexibly in emergency situations.
