In March this year, our CEO Yousef Yousef and CTO Lisa Maria Brand visited Japan to explore business opportunities for LG Sonic. Last week, LG Sonic had the honour of receiving a high-level delegation from Japan to discuss the MPC-Buoy algae solution.
During the four-day visit, the delegation visited the LG Sonic office in the Netherlands, sister company HydroVolta in Belgium, and attended a presentation in London about the LG Sonic project with Sellafield.
The first day started with a visit to the LG Sonic office in Zoetermeer, the Netherlands. Here, the Japanese delegation was given a presentation by CTO Lisa Brand about current and future LG Sonic water treatment technologies. In the afternoon, the delegation was welcomed at the Zoetermeer Municipality by Mayor Charlie Aptroot. The second and third day of the visit took place in Leuven, Belgium at the Hydro Volta offices. Hydro Volta is a sister company of LG Sonic and focusses on water reuse technologies. General Manager George Brik gave a presentation about the game-changing chemical-free technologies used by Hydro Volta to reuse water.
The fourth and last day of the visit took place in London, England. Here, the delegation was given a presentation on the huge impact of LG Sonic technology for the nuclear plant of Sellafield. At the nuclear plant, LG Sonic systems prevent the growth of algae in the storage basins using specific ultrasonic sound waves.
