The Taiwan Excellence Awards, considered the "Oscars of the Industry," are presented annually by MOEA. The awards evaluate products based on four major criteria: "Research and Development," "Design," "Quality," and "Marketing." They also consider the condition of "Made in Taiwan" and select products with innovative value. MBRAN FILTRA stood out among nearly a thousand entries with its "World's Smallest Thumb-sized Outdoor Portable Water Purifier," earning the distinction of the "Taiwan Excellence Silver Award." This recognition adds to the company's high reputation internationally.

In addition to the consecutive awards, MBRAN FILTRA has achieved significant results in promoting its products, gradually establishing a firm position in the industry. Apart from collaborating with Decathlon to design new products, MBRAN FILTRA has partnered with BenQ Qisda Group to jointly develop protein separators, expanding its presence in the cell pharmaceutical industry.
