Due to high total dissolve solid (TDS) and salinity, a water filter system is also required. I2E has been collaborated with Preston GeoCEM Sdn Bhd (A spin-off company of UTHM) and researchers from Electrical, Mechanical and Civil background to complete this project. The system could be the showcase for the visitor especially main industrial players to see UTHM’s products
