Aquaporin A/S is an industrial biotech/cleantech company based in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Aquaporin develops a novel biomimetic water membrane, based on natures’ own water filter, aquaporin water channels.
The Aquaporin membrane technology™ is capable of purifying water to a unique level of purity, while concurrently reducing energy costs.
In laboratory tests the Aquaporin membrane technology™ has demonstrated the potential to be vastly superior both in terms of efficiency and effectiveness compared to any other known water purifying technology and water extraction technology.
The technology is still in the development phase, however, Aquaporin is extracting water with extremely high initial salt rejection rates of 99,9997% and initial water fluxes of ~10 kg/m2/h (at osmotic gradients of 30 bar in draw solutions), with a membrane design very suitable for industrial upscaling.

Aquaporin terminated their participation in the PolyNano project on 1 July 2015.
