Roll Membrane Elements of RUSNANO’s Portfolio Company RM Nanotech Successfully Tested in Syria

25 February 2016

Roll membrane elements produced by RUSNANO’s portfolio company RM Nanotech have been successfully tested in Syria. Products of the leading European manufacturer of nanostructured membranes have been tested by engineering company Aquadamas whose integrator proved the high quality of the filters.

The customer marked the high test results of RM Nanotech’s products which demonstrate good quality at a competitive price (compared to their foreign counterparts). Representatives of RM Nanotech in cooperation with Syrian experts are preparing a major contract for the supply of filter elements to the Syrian government facilities.

The reverse osmosis membrane elements of RM Nanotech fully comply with sanitary and epidemiological requirements and can be used to purify water of varying salinity. The new plant of RM Nanotech in Vladimir has significantly reduced the dependency of Russia on membrane materials import for water treatment and filtration systems.
