Mitsubishi Chemical to market drinking water systems in Myanmar

Along with filtration facilities, company eyes water quality testing

Hollow filter membranes eliminate turbidity from Yangon River water. Depending on the water quality, flocculants may be used for more efficient filtration.

YANGON -- Japan's Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings will begin selling a river water treatment system to the private and public sectors in Myanmar, where economic growth is expected to drive demand for safe drinking water.

Tokyo-based Wellthy, a Mitsubishi Chemical's unit in the water treatment business, will establish a joint venture with its local partner Myanmar Water Engineering & Products with Wellthy taking a 60% stake.
