Our offers for the industry

With detect | remove | reuse to ecologically and economically compatible and sustainable process solutions.

We deliver modular and adaptive solutions for water without microplastics and, if required, extend the range of action to include micropollutants or inorganic parameters. At the same time, we deliver savings in energy, CO2, water, waste, as well as reduced operating and maintenance costs.

The multidimensional approach of microplastic-free production not only achieves measurable contributions to the UN sustainability goals, but also addresses tomorrow's requirements and regulations – today.

Wasser 3.0 PE-X® plant engineering offers:

  • Easy integration into existing processes.
  • Adaptive units.
  • Modular structure.

We combine:

  • scaling and growth.
  • transferability and maximum flexibility.
  • transparency and sustainability.

Details about the rental plant

  • Containerized plant for batch or continuous operation trials.
  • Capacity of reactor tank for MP removal: 250 L.
  • Capacity of steel tank for COD removal: 250 L (100 L clear water zone, 150 L fixed bed).
  • Dosing of Wasser 3.0 PE-X® and contact time in the fixed bed: adaptable and customized, depending on the specific requirements of the process.
  • Belt filter as separation unit.

Our pilot plants and rental model plants provide you with answers, especially regarding economic efficiency and ecological-social benefits. Our plants are modular, adaptable, and scalable and are assembled to fit your exact needs.

  • They allow maximum flexibility in terms of type and concentration of pollution and water type.
  • Our solutions are implemented as stand-alone solutions or add-ons to existing plants.
  • We work in a resource- and cost-oriented manner based on existing processes and existing infrastructure.

Finding solutions to your problems with feasibility studies

In our feasibility studies, your data, processes, and goals meet our interdisciplinary scientific expertise as well as the findings and results of our research and development work related to your process data.

We examine possible solutions to your processes regarding their basic feasibility. Within the framework of the feasibility study, potential solutions are analyzed, risks are identified, and prospects for success assessed. We give equal consideration to economic, ecological, and social parameters.

In our test center and service lab, we have a wide range of options at our disposal.

Our focus - your solution. Always in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Your way to your Sustainability Upgrade of industrial processes

  1. initial contact: Definition of the problem & first steps towards a solution.
  2. start of joint work: Data collection & process analysis. Preliminary tests.
  3. development steps from the laboratory to the pilot plant: development of suitable material compositions and construction of the prototype (modular principle).
  4. trials in our pilot plant: in batch / semi-continuous operation.
  5. rental model (>1 month): Process integration & long-term operation as a side-stream or full operation (processing all outflow) according to specific requirements.
  6. data evaluation & benefit analysis.
  7. scaling to continuous plant operation.

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.
