Technology Transfer: Membrane Water Treatment
In 2015, IFCE Green Technology Promotion Center initiated a technology transfer project of membrane water treatment between EconoPure™ Water System LLC and Hebei Delong Environmental Engineering Co. Ltd.
EconoPure™ Water System (EconoPure), located in Garden Grove, California, is a U.S. company mainly engaged in the development of membrane systems water treatment products. Its LFNano™ membrane system is a nanofiltration system providing osmotic water quality with a simple, unique system to mitigate the effects of membrane fouling. The system combines three features:
Hebei Delong Environmental Engineering Co. Ltd, (Delong) located in Baoding , Hebei Province, is a Chinese company that markets, sells and maintains water treatment systems for a wide range of applications including industrial wastewater, municipal sewage, and other water purification systems in China.
IFCE Green Technology Promotion Center provided the EconoPure and Delong comprehensive services which include technology research & evaluation, proof-reading, strategic advising, technical visit & business meeting, business partnership, and equity financing.
In early 2015, we received a request from EconoPure for seeking business opportunities in China market, and we also received a request from Delong for seeking mature and advanced technologies in wastewater treatment. Based on our research and evaluation, we identified the technical advantages of EconoPure's membrane technologies and their applicabilities in China's wastewater treatment industry.
Since May 2015, we connected EconoPure and Delong for business partnership. We assisted communication and negotiaiton between the two companies by providing proof-reading of technical documents and strategic advising of technology transfer. We also organized two technical visits for the two companies. One was for EconoPure to visit Delong's headquarters in Hebei Baoding, and the other was for Delong to visit EconoPure's equipment and engineering office in Garden Grove, California.
In November 2015, EconoPure and Delong successfully signed a cooperation agreement. So for, their cooperation is working smoothly. A demonstration project of LFNano™ membrane system will be launched in 2016 in China.
