What we do
QStone Capital: financial partner in developing industrial water treatment projects
QStone Capital is an independent financial advisory boutique dedicated to SDG6. We develop industrial water reuse projects and related investment opportunities in India, Bangladesh, and Europe and we translate innovative water treatment technologies into savings (and additional revenues) for (textile) industries and into attractive returns for financiers.
For India, QStone is a founding shareholder of a joint venture called RecStone Water Technologies Pvt. Ltd. together with a textile machine producer based in Tamil Nadu. For its activities in Bangladesh, QStone Capital has set up a fully-owned subsidiary called Bangladesh Water Treatment Partners. With regards to the identification of innovative water technologies, QStone Capital has established a cooperation with Lenntech (www.lenntech.com) in the Netherlands.
Institutional investors and SDG6
Professional investors still seem to be hesitant to walk their SDG6 talk. Becoming an active partner in the development of scalable industrial water treatment projects involving innovative cost reducing technologies is the way forward.
The imminent market driven migration of industries towards full circular water treatment (Zero liquid discharge) could provide engaged investors with very attractive investment opportunities not only in terms of solid returns but also in terms of unambiguous environmental impact.
In our opinion, there is no excuse that single industrial water treatment projects would be too small for institutional investors as we are facing an era of industry wide conversion requiring institutional scale funding.
