BALLERUP, Denmark, Jan. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- LiqTech International, Inc. (NYSE: LIQT) ("LiqTech") is pleased to announce that after extensive and successful testing LiqTech has received a production order for flat sheet silicon carbide membranes from the Middle East.
Finn Helmer, CEO, stated, "This first real production order opens up what we believe will be a significant market opportunity. Tests have shown that the flat sheet silicon carbide membrane is unmatched in the market for cleaning drinking water, waste water and pre-reverse osmosis ("Pre-RO") desalination. Testing is ongoing in 22 additional sites and we expect that our success in recording this particular order will result in significant additional orders from the other test sites.
Further, our initial results in sea water Pre-RO with our new flat sheet membranes has demonstrated a more energy efficient and reliable technology compared to conventional technologies and this is beginning to be accepted by the market. In due course, we will expand our marketing efforts to cover other large applications that can utilize LiqTech's flat sheet silicon carbide membranes."
The initial flat sheet silicon carbide membranes order is for 250 meter2 and is scheduled for delivery in March.
