Wasser 3.0: Waters without
microplastics and micropollutants.



Rethinking water, microplastics and micropollutants in a sustainable way




We end the uncontrolled distribution of microplastics and micropollutants such as pharmaceuticals, PFAS, heavy metals and pesticides in our water cycle.

Aligned with the sustainability goals of the United Nations, we research and develop responsible concepts and solutions to detect, remove and reuse microplastics and micropollutants.

The combination of high-tech materials, low-tech processes and a systemic perspective enables a new level of environmental and health protection in (waste) water treatment.

We act in an effective and solution-oriented way beyond silos – besides science and technology, also in the areas of education and awareness raising – for waters without microplastics and micropollutants.

As a sustainability entrepreneur, we put our business activities at the service of the environment and society.

REC-MP started

Thanks to the generous support of the Vector Foundation, we were able to start our new research project to develop a rapid test for microplastic detection in water bodies at the beginning of November. Simpler, faster and cheaper is again our motto. Because our application-oriented research has only one goal: impact.

On the road in the Netherlands

The first week of November, the Wasser 3.0 team is on the road in the Netherlands. Where could we feel more at home than in the country where innovation and water say 'good morning', so to speak. And feel good we do already very much: Because in our luggage is the incredible nomination for the Aquatech Innovation Award and the hard-fought ticket to the European finals of Get in the Ring - Impact.

Microplastics, Green Deal and regulations

On October 5, Katrin Schuhen is live at the event R(H)EINE LIEBE: WIE BEKÄMPFEN WIR (MIKRO)PLASTIK IN DER EU? She will provide insights into our work and, as a PhD polymer chemist and microplastics expert, will be available for questions and discussion. We are particularly excited about the political aspects in this exchange, we have only recently dealt intensively with laws and regulations on microplastics. We summarized our findings in an article published last week. More...
