WE ACT FOR WATER WITHOUT
MICROPLASTICS AND MICROPOLLUTANTS

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 WANT TO 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

Microplastics and human health

Microplastics have been detected in human blood, lungs, and the placenta of unborn babies. Widespread exposure of humans to microplastics is undeniable. Understanding the impacts of microplastics (< 5 mm) and nano-plastics (< 1 µm) on environmental and human health and the identification of critical thresholds and characterization of hazards, are thus important steps towards effective microplastic management. This article looks at where our knowledge of microplastic impacts on human health currently stands, and the challenges faced.

The challenge of microplastic regulation

Progress has been made in many countries to restrict the use of microplastics. However, there is still no single comprehensive European law that restricts the intentional use of microplastics in products or regulates the unintentional release due to microplastics in wastewater and subsequent discharge into the environment. But effective legislation on microplastics is critical to reducing environmental impact. What is the current status?

(Micro-)plastics: Status of regulation and laws

Plastic production continues to increase and microplastics have been detected nearly everywhere on earth – from arctic snow to human blood – yet there is still no single comprehensive law that regulates microplastic input into the environment. The development of regulations is a slow and ongoing process; this article provides information on the current laws surrounding plastics and microplastics, alongside the associated challenges and chances.
