Partnerships and networks to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals

Beyond the paradigm shift: Our understanding of UN Sustainability Goal no. 17

On our mission for water without microplastics and micropollutants, one thing is clear: we can't do anything alone, we need fellow campaigners!

Joint entrepreneurial action for the big goal of water without microplastics and micropollutants has many faces and creates completely new values beyond the monetary.

The diverse encounters with our "partners in mission" have opened up wonderful spaces that inspire us again and again and convince us that beyond the paradigm shift is exactly where we want to be. And where we can work most effectively for water without microplastics and micropollutants.

This is what our Partners in Mission do

Fortunately, they exist: Those who also locate themselves beyond the paradigm shift, those who are serious about the journey and those who are willing, within their means, to support our work for water without microplastics and micropollutants.

The gGmbH is a very suitable organizational form for our mission because it enables many kinds of cooperation and collaboration in the spirit of SDG 17 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

It then looks like this:

  • We receive laboratory or office equipment and working materials as donations or at discounted rates.
  • We start project cooperations on unresolved issues of water purification.
  • People contribute their expertise (as graphic designer, translator, strategy consultant or tech-nerd ...) - also as donation, on a voluntary basis or at reduced rates.
  • People, organizations, and companies support us financially with donations and sponsoring.

A special honour: Solar Impulse Efficient Solution Label

To tackle environmental issues while enabling economic growth, Bertrand Piccard has launched a challenge through the Solar Impulse Foundation to recognise 1000 solutions that protect the environment in a profitable way and present them to decision-makers to accelerate implementation. The associated World Alliance network includes more than 3,000 start-ups, companies, investors and authorities who are working together to tackle the challenges of environmental protection.

Our Wasser 3.0 PE-X® process has been the proud holder of the Solar Impulse Efficient Solution Label since January 2021, making it one of these #1000SOLUTIONS.

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.

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.
