This order followed LG Chemical' previous success in winning an 250,000 ton order from Oman last year.
LG Chemical which jumped into the desalination filter business by acquiring the US tech start-up Nano H20 in 2014, is establishing a clearer profile in this business.
LG Chemical announced on June 11 that it was chosen as a sole supplier of Reverse osmosis (RO) filters for a 300,000 ton desalination plant which is now being built by a global water treatment company Metito. The plant is located between El Galalah and Port Said.
This plant will be the largest desalination project in Egypt which will be capable of supply desalinated water to 1 million people on a daily basis.
The value of this order is estimated at around 15 billion won. LG Chemical will start supplying RO filters to Metito from the latter half of this year.
LG Chemical said this order proved its technological superiority in RO filters, particularly considering that concentration in the Red Sea area is the highest in the world.
