"The group remains positive about the outlook of the Chinese water treatment sector, as well as the demand for membrane products and membrane bioreactor technology," the company said.
It expects membrane technology to become more widely accepted as the Chinese government continues to work towards raising water discharge standards across China.
"To fully capture this growing market, the group will continue to explore joint-ventures with strategic partners to secure more EPC projects and boost membrane sales," it added.
