From the Concept to the Product Wasser 3.0
Wasser 3.0 is based on a material scientific approach to solve variable pollution problems. In this context, variable means that the composition of the pollution parameters and thus the concentration of trace substances in the water can change. It is the first procedure, which provides modular adaptable hybrid silica gels as fixation materials for stressors for wastewater remediation and drinking water purification. With Wasser 3.0 the functional groups of the stressors and their reactivity receive more focus vis-à-vis inorganic-organically structured materials. This principle is described with the functional design.
The modular hybrid materials consist of an inorganic and an organic part and can be used as a singular solution or as a combination of different hybrid components and e.g. activated charcoal.
