About Kolon Industries, Inc.

KOLON Industries, Inc. was founded in 1957. Formerly KOLON Corporation, we are an independent company after the adoption of a holding company structure by the KOLON Group in 2010.

We focus on four major business divisions: automotive & advanced materials; chemical; optical & electronic films; and fashion following the first nylon production in Korea in 1957.

Membrane R&D started in 1989. Kolon developed and sold four membrane applications worldwide: water purifiers, biopharmaceutical, water & wastewater treatment and hydrogen fuel cell systems.

MBR technology & applications

Proprietary MBR products and systems:

  • Cleanfil-S; Braid reinforced PVDF HFM
  • LENA (Low Energy No Aeration) system
  • KIMAS (Kolon Immersed Membrane Activated Sludge) system

CleanfilTM-S is a braid-reinforced PVDF hollow fibre membrane which:

  • has outstanding tensile and anti-peeling strength
  • is free of wetting agent, allowing easy storage & installation without requiring rinsing
  • has a high packing density, and so a small footprint
  • has a low air consumption.

CleanfilTM-S has been installed at more than 400 sites over 10 countries since 2006. The largest (max. capacity) reference is a 90,000 ㎥/day STP.

The new LENA (Low Energy No Aeration) technology for MBR systems requires no membrane blowers; horizontal reciprocation of the membrane cassettes using a motor and crank generates inertial force of the hollow fibre membranes.

The LENA system prevents sludge accumulation within the fibres more evenly than using an aerator in the membrane cassette, and reduces the energy consumption of conventional air scouring by around 75% compared to a conventional MBR system. It can also achieve a low TN value through increased denitrification efficiency.
