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

Low-tech system design meets high-tech materials.


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.

Microplastics removal with Wasser 3.0 PE-X®

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.
