Aqualia and NX Filtration enter next phase in using direct nanofiltration technology
Over the past two years Aqualia validated NX Filtration's dNF technology through a series of pilot tests on various applications, including drinking water production and wastewater reuse. This led to an agreement between the two companies that forms the basis for the use of NX Filtration's dNF technology in various future projects across Aqualia´s territories.
Aqualia provides its services to 43.7 million users across 18 countries, and is the fourth water company in Europe by population served.
