Wasser 3.0 – StressFix

StressFix1 and StressFix2

Wasser 3.0 – StressFix is the first efficient method to remove pharmaceuticals and trace metals from the wastewater. Modular adaptable hybrid silica gels are provided as fixation materials for stressors in wastewater sanitation and drinking water treatment. In the case of StressFix the functional groups of stressor molecules and their reactivity to inorganic-organic hybrid materials move into the central focus. This principle is described as functional design.

In the area of trace metal fixation, a complexation reaction additionally moves into the focus. This complexation can also be supported by stressors, which act as stabilizing chelating ligands, and for example lead to a complexation of trace metals with a simultaneous reduction of the stressor concentration.
