26 Nov AQUAPORIN SUBSIDIARY IN THE UNITED STATES
EXPANSION OF THE AQUAPORIN GROUP
The water quality in the US has over a decade faced significant challenges causing society and health issues for the American citizen.
According to New York Times, if you live in the United States, there is a nearly one-in-four risk your tap water is either unsafe to drink or has not been properly monitored for contaminants in accordance with federal law.
American Water Works Association published in the Water Industry Report 2018 conclusions of a comprehensive survey conducted among Americans: as a top concern is the poor infrastructure causing problems with delivered water quality relating to unsafe levels of lead.
The Aquaporin Inside® technology is now available directly in the US, as Aquaporin has established a US presence, by the incorporation of Aquaporin US. From a business perspective, Aquaporin is entering a market for residential RO membranes of almost DKK 3 billion.
Using Nature’s own water channels, the Aquaporin Inside® technology is the core of the best household water purifiers. An Aquaporin Inside® tab water membrane provides high rejection of harmful pollutants ensuring safe and healthy drinking water.
Peter Holme Jensen, CEO of Aquaporin A/S comments: “The establishment of Aquaporin US, makes it possible to get even closer to our American customers. Besides the challenges for safe drinking water in the US, we know that the market for bottled water in the US in 2017 reached its highest level, which proves the big market potential for securing safe drinking water in the US. With the Aquaporin Inside® products, more Americans will be able to enjoy safe drinking water directly from the tab.”
