BALLERUP, Denmark, July 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- LiqTech International, Inc. (NYSE MKT: LIQT) ("LiqTech") is pleased to announce that the Company received a $350,000 Silicon Carbide (SiC) membrane system order from a Danish customer to be delivered this year. The system will be installed at a Danish fish farm to filter sea water for its recirculated aquaculture system.
The Danish fish farm will apply LiqTech's SiC based membrane system to create a bio-secure facility and to prevent disease to spread from the sea water to the closed aquaculture system. LiqTech's system together with Provital's UV system will provide water quality ideal for the aquaculture plant.
Mr. Sune Mathiasen, CEO, remarked, "This order is an example of the value that our technology adds to water treatment systems. Our SiC membranes are capable of improving the water quality and at the same time offer water and energy savings compared to conventional technologies. In other words, our technology adds value by ensuring the right water quality and thereby the right conditions for aquaculture systems and this at reduced operational costs. This is the first large application of LiqTech's SiC membranes combined with Provital's system integration expertise in what is expected to potentially be a very large market in aquaculture."
Mr. Mathiesen concluded, "We are very quickly seeing the benefits of LiqTech's acquisition of Provital Solutions A/S and we anticipate many additional meaningful opportunities as we aggressively expand our sales and marketing activities."
