South Korea's LG Electronics and Japan's Hitachi Plant Technologies have agreed to set up a water treatment joint venture in Seoul which will start operations in October, LG said on July 11.

LG-Hitachi Water Solutions, in which LG will hold 51% and Hitachi the rest, will focus on municipal water supply, sewage treatment, industrial water supply, industrial wastewater treatment and reuse and recycling of wastewater for local companies and governments.
