Our heartiest congratulations to UAESBC Member Mr Bashir Ahmad and his team at Liquinex Group Pte Ltd for winning the Innovative Research and Development Award (International Institutions) category of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Water Award in Dubai on Wednesday, 29th Jan. A total of 96 applicants from over 30 countries were received for the 3 award categories.
Liquinex’s innovative water treatment and recycling system using robust ceramic membrane as a core technology received top accolade for the category which supports R&D of new and innovative technologies that produce, desalinate and purify water. The global award is a testament of the prioritization of the UAE in developing solutions for challenges that are faced by poverty- and disaster-stricken communities worldwide. It encourages leading corporations, research centers, institutions and innovators from across the world to compete in finding sustainable and innovative solar-energy solutions to the problem of water scarcity.
The UAESBC is pleased to have been able to play a role, along with our Strategic Partners, the UAE Embassy in Singapore and Enterprise Singapore, in connecting Liquinex with relevant and influential UAE entities and individuals. Mr Bashir and his team’s passion and dedication to their product was apparent during the multiple meetings and presentations we secured/initiated for them.
