DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES, September 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Residents and businesses in 20 Sub-Saharan countries will soon have more reliable access to clean water, thanks to a new partnership between LG Chem / LG Water Solutions and Desalytics Water Solutions.

The agreement designates Desalytics Water Solutions as the official channel partner of LG Chem's NanoH2O™ reverse osmosis (RO) membrane products, which help turn seawater and brackish water into potable and process water.

Having recently completed several acquisitions in the area to optimize its operations, Desaltyics is set to be present in 20 Sub-Saharan countries by 2022.

The company will improve access to the technology in each country, ensuring a more secure supply of clean water for local communities and industrial end-users. In addition to supplying and servicing LG Chem's NanoH2O™ RO membrane technologies, Desalytics will also provide further technical expertise, products, and support.
