There have been emerging issues in the water and sanitation field of Myanmar affected by the climate change, such as deterioration of raw water quality for city water (high turbidity due to heavy rain and salination), or by increasing amount of effluent discharge to rivers from factories due to infrastructure development. Yet the technology to manage the environment in order to properly grasp such affects is still lacking.
MW Aqua Solutions, as a group company of Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, will contribute to improving the sustainability through introduction of environment-oriented technology by promoting development of water infrastructure based on on-site water supply system together with highly reliable water quality analysis business in Myanmar.
