We are committed to creating shared value between businesses, society, and the environment through membrane treatment solutions that have a positive impact on target sustainability metrics.

As water-related issues continue to rise worldwide, we will continue to advance membrane treatment solutions to keep the world blue by thinking differently about customers, products, and markets; placing positive environmental impact at the core of our business. We have applied this concept worldwide through the Avista Approach, which evaluates opportunities to maximize system recovery, enhances operations, and utilizes our savings calculators to show the positive environmental and economic impact our recommended solutions may have. By helping customers maintain membrane health through optimized system performance, we maximize service life, which results in a reduced environmental impact created by membrane replacement.   

Since we began our new chapter as a global brand of Kurita, we have evolved to meet the growing demands and requirements for quality water around the world. We’re creating innovative solutions to solve our customers’ most complex challenges with greater global awareness. This universal understanding is a result of the Avista Center of Excellence (CoE), where we unite Kurita companies worldwide in our efforts to innovate, educate, and impact membrane system challenges faced by plant engineers and operators. 

We’re launching new membrane chemicals, expanding our investments and global manufacturing capabilities, and building a foundation of membrane technical knowledge across the Kurita companies and Avista partners– to innovate on a global scale and continue to lead the membrane chemicals market.  

Working with Kurita R&D groups, we can develop new products with a greater understanding of what is needed globally. We will continue to work closely to develop global and regional product lines that provide a complete product portfolio for our customers. As the world continues to face water related issues, we will continue to create solutions that keep the world blue. 

Saving water, energy and the environment through creative chemistry and smart solutions  
one membrane at a time. 

Our vision for building a water-resilient world starts by understanding our customer and society’s shared issues and goals around water savings, energy savings, and waste reduction creating value between businesses and communities. Kurita Water Industries has been working on solving issues related to water resources for over 70 years. Leveraging the synergy between Kurita and Avista, we are creating a truly unique global platform that will continue to lead the membrane chemical industry. 

As a global group, we share the belief that putting people first, both customers and employees alike, is the key to building a synergistic culture. Together, we can help our customers and partners address societal needs and environmental challenges caused in the membrane treatment process to make a positive environmental impact that has a long-lasting effect on generations for years to come. 

“Proper membrane treatment plays a vital role in preserving and supplying potable water. By providing solutions that reduce the amount of water, energy, and waste during operations we work to help solve the challenges faced by our customers worldwide–today and in the future.”
