Nanostart-Holding ItN Nanovation Receives Large Order From The Gulf Region
(Nanowerk News) Nanostart-Holding ItN Nanovation AG has signed a major contract covering the delivery of 20 mobile wastewater treatment plants with 12 filtration units each to the Dubai region.
The contract volume amounts to approximately EUR 5 million. The entire delivery of the plants is expected to be completed by July 2009. This order is a significant milestone in the history of ItN Nanovation.
It represents the first step towards a sustained market success of the highly innovative CFM Systems filter technology for water treatment.
The treatment plants are designed to filtrate wastewater in construction worker camps located in the dry, fast-growing region of Dubai. The plants will convert wastewater to recyclable water for industrial/domestic use – free of suspended substances, germs and bacteria – and thus alleviate the water shortage there.
