New data on microplastic removal from wastewater

Wastewater treatment plants are important point sources of microplastics and micropollutants into the environment. Many wastewater treatment plants will be required to upgrade their facilities with an advanced treatment step to remove micropollutants, but these processes do not target microplastic removal. We therefore investigated the ability of two advanced treatment methods and our novel Wasser 3.0 PE-X® process to remove microplastics at the wastewater treatment plant in Landau, Germany. Read more about the key finding of our study, which was recently published open access in MDPI Water.

Microplastics and Tire Wear

Tire wear particles are communicated as one of the main sources of direct microplastic (Microplastics Type B) entry into the environment. But is this the truth? Fact is: Currently, no standardized analytical method for tire wear particles exists; only rough estimations can be made. The real extent is unknown. This blog discusses the issue of tire wear particles as a major microplastic source and the status quo regarding detection and regulations.

Outlook for World Water Day

In order to draw society's attention to the great importance of water and water availability, the UN decided in 1993 to declare March 22 every year as World Water Day. This is to both celebrate the importance of water and draw attention to the ongoing water and sanitation crisis. The motto of this year's World Water Day is "Accelerating Change together." Since every day is World Water Day for us, there is also a competition in addition to the outlook.

News about Micropastics Detection

The detection of microplastics is of crucial importance when it comes to assessing the risk potential and the entry routes of microplastics into the environment. A standardized detection method is therefore essential to collect comparable and reliable data on microplastic pollution and to identify hotspots. This blog gives an overview of our current study and the most important results.

Unlock Potentials for Water without Microplastics

In the November 2022 issue of Smart Water Magazine we were able to summarize our opinion on the topic "Microplastics - global environmental problem - what now?". Our founder and managing director Dr. Katrin Schuhen wrote an article on this with a focus on unimagined potential for water without microplastics and micropollutants. Follow the link to the article.
