By applying the companies advanced solutions that combines with RO added to the company's original water reclamation equipment such as neutralization, decolorization, sterilization, COD/BOD reduction measures, and not only contribute to innovative improvements. And this could also be applied as to improve multiple segments such as agriculture, aquaculture, Various fields such as food processing, decentralized small-scale water supply facility (RO pretreatment), replacement of MBR for sewage, energy saving, sludge concentration, water jet construction, removal and collection of hardly decomposable substances, rare earth mud, and emergency water supply .
One Water Source
It is a fact that we live in a connected world enabled by information technology. However as water surrounds 71% of our planet, this shows another layer that connects all living being on our planet.
