Universal treatment for removal of micropollutants from water

We have developed a unique technology that offers complete removal and real-time monitoring of a wide range of micropollutants in a cost-effective and sustainable manner. Using our novel approach, pollutants are completely and truly eliminated as means of destruction, instead of transferring them to a secondary phase as with filtration or absorption.

Nanoporous catalysts activated by clean energy

We have developed a range of catalysts that are activated by clean and scalable energy sources for oxidation and subsequent mineralization of micropollutants, non-selectively. Our patented catalysts are not only self-cleaning, mechanically robust and chemically resistant, but also fully recyclable. No matter what application or industry our catalysts serve, their size and shape can be easily customized to meet the individual needs of our customers.

Real-time monitoring of micropollutants

Right now, if you want to know the concentration of micropollutants in your water or verify if your treatment is working, you must wait for a few days, if not weeks, to get this data from a lab. We believe that empowering our customers with real-time data is the best way to create transparency, build trust, and protect the health of our environment against micropollutants. With the help of proprietary machine learning models and use of novel inline sensors we remotely monitor concentration of various micropollutants, in real-time. We provide real-time feedback for control and optimisation of treatment parameters and ensure that when we discharge water it meets the highest water quality standards, every single time.

What is

our novelty?

We are unique in our overall approach to solve global water contamination crisis. We have developed highly scalable and cost-effective means to activate our novel catalyst that destroys all micropollutants and provide their concentrations in real-time.

Mechanical vibrations, bubbling, flow, stress, cavitation and light: all can activate our material. ​Once activated, energy source-induced surface polarizations are generated across all nanopores of our catalyst.​ These transient surface charges split water and oxygen to form radicals.​ The highly nanoporous catalyst surface area provides billions of radical production sites.​ Radicals such as the hydroxyl radicals degrade organic pollutants, non-selectively.

Our technology implementation

Wastewater generated from industrial production streams, households, hospitals or contaminated groundwater is treated by our modular plug-and-play reactors. Our decentralised reactors, which are readily adapted to your individual needs, can be easily connected to your wastewater system on-site for decentralised treatment. By working with us our customers benefit from a technology that is fully automated, easy to use, has low maintenance, and low capital investment needs
