Aquaporin and Forward Water Technologies announce partnership

The two innovative water technology companies Aquaporin and Forward Water Technologies are pleased to announce a strategic partnership for the North American market where Forward Water will sell Aquaporin’s unique biomimetic forward osmosis membranes for applications associated with lithium mining and extraction and water management within the Oil & Gas industry.

Forward Water will distribute the Aquaporin Inside® Hollow Fiber Forward Osmosis products in the Oil & Gas and mining sectors including lithium-related applications in North America. The use of Aquaporin’s membranes within Forward Water’s industrial forward osmosis systems has the potential to deliver a new level of performance; higher water selectivity, cleaner permeate for reuse, higher recovery percentage, and most importantly lower OPEX.

Forward Water President and CEO Howie Honeyman comments: “We are proud to partner with Aquaporin, the leader in biomimetic water filtration technology. Forward Water has had a long and positive experience using Aquaporin’s forward osmosis modules and is now pleased to aid in the distribution of these high-performance products across North America.”

Aquaporin CEO Matt Boczkowski is pleased to have Forward Water as strategic partner. He adds: “North America, lithium mining, and the Oil & Gas industry are three markets where our forward osmosis technology not only offers a new level of performance but also empowers customers to take responsibility for the Earth we live on, and the water supplies we live off. We are pleased to embark on this journey with Forward Water.”
