Technology for waters without microplastics and micropollutants: Wasser 3.0 PE-X®


Every water, every pollution, and every process is unique. Wasser 3.0 offers tailor-made solutions for waters without microplastics and micropollutants such as pharmaceuticals, heavy metals, PFAS and pesticides. Our solutions are economically and ecologically well thought out from A to Z.

Our goal is absolute application orientation on a scientifically fundament. Through cross-evaluations, we manage to evaluate processes even if standardized detection methods are missing - as is the case with microplastics. With a consistent reuse strategy, waste products can be reused, and waters recycled.




With Wasser 3.0 PE-X®, we developed the first filter-free process solution for the quick, efficient, and cost-effective removal of microplastics and / or micropollutants from different types of water.

Three material classes form the basis of our modular system:

  • Agglomeration fixation for microplastics,
  • Functional design for micropollutants and
  • Chelation for inorganic compounds (cations and anions).


Scientifically published long-term studies are available for Wasser 3.0 PE-X® in the areas of wastewater, seawater, and specific industrial process waters.

According to the principle of agglomeration fixation (clump & skim) and through the precise combination of materials and technology for the respective process, all microplastic particles are clumped into particle composites - regardless of the type of polymer or type of water.

As they float to the surface of the water, they can be separated using a skimmer without a filter. Coarse-pored filters can also be used for large agglomerates. This saves both costs and immense maintenance efforts, which increase continuously with decreasing particle size.
