Bannichi Enterprise Ltd.(BEL)(www.bannichi.com), a joint venture with Sumimoto Scientific Institute of Japan is the exclusive authority to produce and market the Nephron system in Bangladesh.
The Sumimoto Scientific Institute (SSI) of Japan developed the completely new method of circulating and recycling lubricant fluid based on biotechnology.
