Instead of marketing, we rely on communication. Not b2b, b2g or b2c, but h2h - human to human. We go into the depth of research in our scientific publications. The aim here is to describe the scientific facts factually correct and for the scientific world.

Scientifically founded facts prepared for everyday use can be found in our information and educational materials and our videos and press articles.
In our blog for water without microplastics and micropollutants and social media channels, we provide insights into our projects as well as our thinking and acting as a green tech company and sustainability entrepreneur.

The power of networks

On our way to water without microplastics and micropollutants, we rely on networks and the exchange with various stakeholders from science, business, politics, and society. Through dialogue and the will to act, we make active contributions to a wide variety of transformation processes for a more sustainable future.
