TOKYO, JAPAN: Toray Industries announced that it has won an order to supply reverse osmosis (RO) membrane elements to Tuaspring desalination plant in Singapore. The plant will have a water production capacity of 318,500 cubic metre per day, making it the largest in Asia. Toray is scheduled to supply its RO membrane elements in 2012 and the Tuaspring desalination plant is expected to start operations in 2013. The global RO membrane market has been expanding, fueled by worsening global water shortages and the need for conservation of water resources in response to environmental considerations.

Under the medium term management programme of Toray ‘Project AP-G 2013’ launched in April 2011, it is implementing the Green Innovation Business Expansion Project, and the water treatment business, which is aimed at addressing global issues including environmental, resource-related and energy issues, is positioned as one of the core areas of the project. The demand for membranes is likely to keep growing steadily, primarily in regions including North America, Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and China, while the demand in emerging countries including India and those in Latin America is also expected to expand.
