NX Filtration and Transcend partner to showcase the benefits of direct nanofiltration membranes through generative design software

The collaboration between Transcend, a provider of generative design SaaS tools,  and NX Filtration, the global provider of breakthrough direct nanofiltration (dNF) membrane technology for pure and affordable water, brings NX Filtration’s advanced projection tool online through the Transcend platform. This will enable asset owners and engineering companies to make their own projections and system designs which include NX Filtration’s dNF membranes.

Enschede, the Netherlands, 10 November 2022

Transcend and NX Filtration have signed an agreement to showcase the potential of NX Filtration’s dNF membranes using Transcend’s advanced water/wastewater design software. As part of the collaboration, Transcend will configure its cloud-based software platform, the Transcend Design Generator (TDG), specific to NX Filtration’s technology. This configuration will automate the preliminary design of water and wastewater treatment processes and their associated technologies, including NX Filtration’s advanced suite of dNF membranes. TDG will also enable NX Filtration’s customers to automatically generate preliminary design proposals and provide further insights to NX Filtration’s engineers.

“Transcend is pleased to partner with NX Filtration and leverage our TDG software as a service platform to showcase the potential of NX’s unique technology,” said Ari Raivetz, CEO of Transcend.  “A big part of Transcend’s mission is to help accelerate the adoption of innovation in the water sector.  NX Filtration has developed an innovative and sustainable membrane product portfolio, and we see a substantial opportunity to allow asset owners, engineering companies, and NX’s customers and partners to accelerate adoption of this unique technology by including it in TDG.”

Michiel Staatsen, CEO NX Filtration adds: “TDG is a fast and accessible web-based tool that is widely known in the industry. Adding our dNF technology to this platform makes it easy to use and allows our customers to generate proposals from basic inputs. The projections include forecasted water quality, energy usage and the cleaning philosophy, showing the operational efficiency advantages in terms of energy and chemical usage of hollow fiber nanofiltration.”
