We prioritise the importance of circular economy principles as core to our organisation. As such, it was valuable to get an insight into the operations of the leading Filipino wastewater treatment plant at Biotech Farms, including their initiatives around on site reuse of waste as a resource. Speaking after the visit, Biotech Farms’ CEO, Rey Chiang, said: “CustoMem combined their technical expertise and common sense approach, thus tremendously helping us to identify the issues and resolve them with the lowest cost.”

‘It's excellent learning, for both sides, to visit new sites and share know-how about industrial affluent treatment,” Henrik added. “I hope our input to the wastewater treatment operations will contribute to the fulfilment of their ambitious sustainability goals and look forward to interacting more with the wider Asian industrial wastewater treatment sector."
