Pall Corp partners with KAUST on water tech
Research will focus on filtration, separation and purification
Pall Corporation has reported that it has teamed up with Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) to help drive research into filtration, separations and purification technologies. Pall is set to take part in KAUST’s Industry Collaboration Programme (KICP), a membership-based initiative aimed at ‘fostering strong and productive partnerships with industry’.
“Pall has been a technology leader in filtration and separation for decades. By becoming part of this collaboration, we can match our deep technical and commercial knowledge with the research capabilities at KAUST and its partners to help further efforts in high-growth areas that will only become more critical in the coming years,” said Dr Brian Muellers, senior VP of industrial R&D at Pall.
The firm says that it is expecting to collaborate with multiple research centres and industrial partners through a range of research efforts.
“The Middle East is an important growth market for Pall. Our sales in the Middle East have more than doubled in the last four years. This collaboration illustrates our continued commitment to meeting the current and evolving needs of the region’s industries and utilities,” said Pall Industrial president, Ruby Chandy.
