"Receiving recognition from Frost & Sullivan for a second year running showcases the unique value generated from playing a part in Singapore’s vibrant Hydro Hub. After receiving two rounds of technology development funding from the Singapore Government’s National Research Foundation via schemes administered by Singapore’s Economic Development Board (EDB) and National Water Agency (PUB), Aquaporin Asia is now well-positioned to commercialize the Aquaporin Inside™ Membrane Technology in the Asia Pacific region. All of this would never have been possible without support from our key collaboration partners at Nanyang Technological University, DHI Water & Environment, the Aquaporin Group, and the hard-working Aquaporin Asia team. At the beginning of each year, we playfully refer to our yearly R&D and BD masterplans as “mission impossible”. I’m extremely proud to be working for a company where the impossible is continuously proven to be possible”, says Mark Perry, Vice President of Business Development and Sales, Asia.
