Research & Development

inge GmbH is a world-leading provider of water ultrafiltration technology. At the heart of our technology is our proprietary, patented Multibore® membrane which offers a wide array of outstanding characteristics.


Since inge® became a subsidiary of BASF – the world's leading chemical company – we have enjoyed access to an even more extensive, top-quality global research network which is helping us to continuously improve the polymers that form the raw material for our membranes.

Some 50 staff members around the world have been working on developing and optimizing our membrane technology since 2012. Our goal is to optimize our membrane processes for each specific water processing task in regard to the key factors of sustainability, efficiency, performance and cost-effective operation.
