Aquaporin and Berghof Membranes welcome Wafilin Systems in joint membrane venture

Share

To collect testimonies to their new, jointly developed Berghof Hyperflux™ and Aquaporin Inside® food-ready Tubular Forward Osmosis (Food TFO) membranes and ultimately commercialize them, Berghof Membranes and Aquaporin are welcoming Wafilin Systems in strategic alliance.

Aquaporin, a Danish water technology company specialized in biomimetic membranes, and Berghof Membranes, a leading German manufacturer of tubular membranes for the filtration and separation of process streams and wastewater, have worked intensively on the subject of tubular forward osmosis for a long time.

Their latest Food TFO membranes are developed to comply with food contact material regulations, making them suitable for use in food and beverage processing to concentrate food products at lower temperatures, with less energy and improved product quality.

To align their technology even better with market needs and commercialize their solution, Berghof Membranes and Aquaporin have decided to add a strong partner to their strategic alliance: Wafilin Systems.

Berghof Membranes’ Managing Director Eric Wildeboer underlines how the three-party collaboration is built on mutual respect: 

“We are firmly convinced that the Food TFO membranes we have developed with Aquaporin provide unique benefits, especially for the food and beverage industry. Therefore, we are happy to have Wafilin Systems onboard and look forward to strengthening our commercial efforts and making our technology even better by using the testimonials and experiences Wafilin Systems will collect from customers.“

Succeeding through partnership

Wafilin Systems is a renowned membrane applications specialist that for several years has been successfully focusing on the food and dairy industries where forward osmosis technology is particularly beneficial. As a result, Wafilin Systems has built an excellent network and a first-class reputation in these industries. Based on that, the company will further boost Berghof Membranes and Aquaporin's unique forward osmosis technology by bringing it to market, firstly in the Benelux countries.

Evaporation, which has frequently been used up until now to process food and beverage products, not only requires a lot of energy, but also evaporates valuable aromas, flavors, and nutrients, while concentrating with forward osmosis is energy and cost-efficient without compromising quality and taste. As the product quality is being preserved during concentration, logistical and sustainability benefits can also be explored.

“We are pleased to welcome Wafilin Systems to our close collaboration with Berghof Membranes. The goal of this expanded team is to use each other’s strengths to deliver a tailored solution to the food and beverage industry to develop high-quality concentrates and become more energy-efficient and sustainable. With our solution, food and beverage manufacturers can offer novel products while reducing their CO2 footprint and optimizing transportation costs thanks to significantly reduced volumes,” says Matt Boczkowski, Aquaporin CEO.
