For more water without microplastics

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.


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.

Future-proof. Comprehensible. Tailor-made.  

Clean water worldwide - Because healthy living needs water without microplastics

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 application-based research and transformative education like our educational tool WASoMI and outreach initiatives.

Microplastics in industrial wastewater

Steigende gesetzliche Regulationen für Polymere, Kunststoffe und Mikroplastik, hohe Kosten für Wasser, Abfälle, Energie, Chemikalien und die Instandhaltung von Anlagen sowie komplexe Verschmutzungsszenarien - Unternehmen, die in ihren Prozessen viel Wasser, Polymere und weitere Chemikalien einsetzen, stehen vor der Herausforderung ihr Umwelt-, Abfall- und Ressourcenmanagements neu auszurichten. Mit dem Verfahren Wasser 3.0 PE-X® steht erstmals eine adaptive Komplettlösung für ein nachhaltiges und kosteneffizientes Sustainability Upgrade für die industrielle Wasserbehandlung zur Verfügung. Der Schwerpunkt des Verfahrens, das auf Green Chemistry, low-tech Anlagen und kreislaufwirtschaftliche Prozesse setzt, liegt in der Entfernung von Mikroplastik. Bei geringen Anschaffungs- und Betriebskosten verbessern sich dabei nicht nur die Wasserqualität, sondern auch Ressourcennutzung, Abfallaufkommen und Energieverbrauch.

Teaser Bratpfanne - PFAS Chemikalien für die Ewigkeit

Forever Chemicals – PFAS (Part 2)

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) – synthetic “forever chemicals” – have become a substantial and pervasive global challenge. They have managed to infiltrate diverse ecosystems, contaminate water sources, and accumulate in human bodies. They are incredibly persistent and have significant adverse effects on both human health and the environment. Acting now to unravel the complexity of the PFAS problem and implement effective solutions is critical to prevent further accumulation in the environment and secure a healthier future for generations to come. Part two of our PFAS blog series will address the health risks associated with PFAS and the EU’s recently proposed restriction.

Microplastics in wastewater treatment plants

Microplastics and highly viscous oligomers (including soluble polymers) cannot yet be removed within the purification stages of a wastewater treatment plant. For this reason alone, sewage treatment plants are considered to be emitters of microplastics into the environment. Read more in our blog.
