Royal Interest for the Launch of PWN Technologies Company in Singapore

SIWW, Singapore, June 24, 2009 - (ACN Newswire) - Prince Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands, Chair of the UN Secretary-General's Advisory Board on Water and Sanitation held a key note speech in the Water Leaders' Summit at the conference and took time to meet some of the participating organisations, including PWN Technologies.

PWN, the water supply utility for North Holland, launched a new international company called PWN Technologies on June 21st, the eve of the Singapore International Water Week, to make their technology, operational expertise and advanced water treatment solution designs available to fellow water companies all over the world for the provision of pure, clean water.

PWN's achievements in advancing water treatment practices over the last decades are somewhat unknown, having employed this expertise primarily in its own facilities. Though a great many water professionals in the world will have already come across "PWN technologies inside" without realising it. Examples include the world's first wide-scale use of membranes for drinking water treatment, the invention of UV Hydrogen Peroxide treatment, and pioneering work in the economic application of ceramic membranes for water treatment.

PWN's Executive Director, Martien den Blanken sees the company launch as a progressive step in making advanced water treatment technologies more widely available: "As a public services organization, it is our primary objective to utilize the best technology available for the good of the community. In many cases, this has meant developing the technology ourselves, as the water sources we are dealing with are increasingly degraded as fresh water sources are used up. We want to now step-up the sharing of this expertise with others, and help more and more people get connected to a safe water supply."
