Water Planet expands manufacturing capabilities for advanced water treatment membranes

Water Planet, a global supplier of high-performance membrane-based water treatment solutions, has moved its corporate headquarters to cope with the increasing demand for its PolyCera membranes.

The new manufacturing space in Inglewood, California increases WP’s production capabilities for PolyCera by a factor of 12 and will meet the company’s projected sales through 2020.

Moreover, the production capacity can be further expanded by up to four times within the new facility as demand requires.

Water Planet’s campus now consists of three buildings, the new corporate headquarters and PolyCera manufacturing facility, IntelliFlux systems engineering and tech services, and the company’s research and development laboratories.

Based on Nobel Prize winning chemistry that was developed into membrane technology at UCLA and then commercialised by Water Planet, PolyCera is a membrane filtration technology based on advanced polymeric materials.

PolyCera offers high performance characteristics previously found only with ceramic membranes, but with a dramatic economic advantage, WP says.

PolyCera, introduced in 2016, is being deployed in industrial water reuse in refining, power, food and beverage, and oil and gas applications, in municipal wastewater in tertiary filtration, and MBR form-factors as well as for POU/POE drinking water.
