Ovivo Inc., a global provider of water and wastewater treatment equipment, technology and systems, is pleased to announce a major investment of more than 25 million US dollars for the construction of a state-of-the-art facility that will produce Cembrane’s unique patented Silicon Carbide (“SiC”) flat sheet membranes in the United States.
As announced on November 1st, 2021, Cembrane has officially joined the Ovivo group to propel the growth of its SiC membrane technology as part of a resourceful and global water treatment organization. After collaborating with Cembrane for several years, Ovivo has designated the Cembrane SiC membranes as its preferred membrane technology in the future. The integration of Cembrane will enhance growth in Ovivo’s existing markets and create opportunities with new solutions for a wide variety of applications in drinking water and wastewater, within both the municipal and industrial markets.

The facility is expected to be fully operational by early 2023 and should create nearly 100 new jobs when at full capacity.
Concurrently with this major investment in the United States, Ovivo is also investing to build additional manufacturing capacity at Cembrane’s facility in Lynge, Denmark.
