umitomo Electric Industries, Ltd. (TOKYO:5802) (ISIN:JP3407400005), and its subsidiary, Sumito-

mo Electric Fine Polymer, Inc. (SFP), launched the

Microfiltration Membrane Module designed for the membrane bioreactor (MBR) to the Chinese market. The first shipment of this product, headed to major chemical and steel manufacturing companies in China, has completed by the end of February 2010.

This Microfiltration Membrane Module for MBR employs SFP‘s „POREFLON,“ a porous membrane material manufactured by the unique processing technology using polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE). POREFLON has numerous fine pores approximately 0.1μm on its surface. In terms of strength and che- mical resistance, POREFLON exceeds polyvinylidene difluoride (PVDF) and other synthetic resins, allowing easy cleaning of the membrane surface and continu- ous, stable operation.
