• Share of fund increased from 18 to 28 percent
• International expansion and marketing
Nanostart Asia Pacific is increasing its share in the Singaporean company Membrane Instruments and Technologies Pte Ltd (MINT) from 18 to 28 percent. The investment in MINT will take place through the Nanostart Early Stage Venture Fund I, which is managed by Nanostart Asia Pacific. The funds will flow in particular to additional marketing of the Membrane Integrity Sensor and its international rollout.
The Membrane Integrity Sensor is currently the flagship product from MINT. It is a sensitive analysis system for continuous and reliable online monitoring of water quality at water treatment facilities. The system was developed at the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore and introduced to the market last year. As the first MINT product available on the market, the sensor is already in use at several facilities. The public water supplier (Public Utilities Board) in Singapore is a customer.
MINT specializes in monitoring and optimizing water treatment facilities. This allows operators to achieve significant cost savings and increase efficiency. The company develops a portfolio of sensors to record various parameters of water treatment facilities.
