WE DEVELOP AND SCALE TECHNOLOGIES TO DETECT | REMOVE | REUSE MICROPLASTICS AND MICROPOLLUTANTS IN AND FROM (WASTE)WATER.

Microplastics and micropollutants pollute our waters. They destroy the balance of our ecosystems and pose an enormous risk to our health. They have been detected numerous times. From the Arctic ice to the deep sea. From the Danube to Mount Everest. In animals, to human intestines, placentas, and most recently in blood, lungs, and breast milk. Every day, the microplastic burden on our ecosystems and bodies is increasing. Until now, there are no efficient technologies in place to prevent this.

WE CHANGE THAT!

HOW SYSTEMATIC ACTION LEADS TO BETTER WATER QUALITY

Non-toxic materials together with a simple equipment design enable the clumping and skimming of microplastics and micropollutants. In combination with microplastic detection and reuse, we enable the greatest possible efficiency in water purification, resource conservation and circular use of waste and wastewater.

We are thus making measurable contributions to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

CLEAN WATER WORLDWIDE: TEAMWORK MAKES THE DREAM WORK

We work in a highly motivated, interdisciplinary team and in diverse collaborations and partnerships. As an independent non-profit company, we take a systematic approach to tackling micropollutant and microplastic pollution of waters at a global scale.

At our company, innovative water technology goes hand in hand with applied basic research and transformative education like our educational tool WASoMI and outreach initiatives.

... BECAUSE A HEALTHY LIFE NEEDS WATER WITHOUT MICROPLASTICS AND MICROPOLLUTANTS.

These are our contributions to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals

Through the cross-sector, cross-stakeholder, non-profit business model and the tireless commitment of the team around Dr. Katrin Schuhen, multiple synergies take the place of silo boundaries: Not only research and development, technology and innovation, and education are thought about and tackled together, but equally economic, environmental, and social levers for water without microplastics and micropollutants.

We deal with many types of water, from wastewater to seawater to drinking water and groundwater, but also with the different pollution scenarios. From general microplastics and micropollutants to different classes of substances such as (water-)soluble polymers, per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) and in particular.

Our solutions are always developed from a sustainability perspective. From the initial investigation to the finished system. In the final step, you receive a fully Sustainability Upgrade. Future-proof. Traceable. Adaptable

Partner in Mission: Van Remmen UV Technology

Responsible research for water without microplastics and micropollutants is part of our DNA. Since October 2021, we have been researching a combination of the AOP processes from our cooperation partner Van Remmen UV Technology and our processes around Wasser 3.0 PE-X® at the Landau wastewater treatment plant. The combination will open new perspectives for a 4th treatment stage in wastewater treatment . How? Read more.

Water: human right or economic-good?

At the beginning of 2021, we wrote a blog post about how the human right to access clean water and sanitation, which has been in force since 2010, is being implemented across the world. Where do we stand? What is the situation today?

Oleg Zernikel came to stay

Oleg is currently one of the best German pole vaulters. His greatest national success was winning the German championship in 2021 and his best international placings were 9th place at the 2021 Olympic Games in Tokyo and 5th place with a personal best at the 2022 World Championships in the USA. At Wasser 3.0, he is currently employed as a scientific assistant and will now also act as an ambassador for water without microplastics. But who is Oleg?
