About MEMCOR − Evoqua Water Technologies LLC

MEMCOR is an operating group within Evoqua Water Technologies, LLC that functions as a vertically-integrated ultrafiltration membrane supplier to the municipal and industrial markets.

The roots of MEMCOR’s membrane technology originated in Australia in the late 1970s, and in 1983 MEMCOR became part of Memtec, a spin off from healthcare giant Baxter Travenol. MEMCOR pioneered the first dead end backwashable low pressure membrane filtration process which is widely utilized today for drinking water, wastewater reuse, desalination pretreatment, and MBR applications.

MEMCOR placed its first drinking water system into operation in 1987 and the first wastewater reuse system into operation in 1990. In 1997 MEMCOR supplied the world’s first drinking water system to be installed in a cold weather climate at the Marquette, Michigan water treatment plant. This was a direct filtration process of Lake Superior. Shortly thereafter MEMCOR joined the many companies acquired by US Filter.

MEMCOR has been in low pressure membrane business for 30 years with state of the art products, systems and services.

MEMCOR generated many MBR technology innovations that have since become the industry standard. Today MEMCOR continues its MBR innovation with the MemPulse® low-energy aeration system.
