Description
We've developed a filter for the washing machines, that capture microfibres before they are released to the wastewater.

Every time we wash our clothes – especially if we wash synthetic fabrics, we release millions of microparticles into the world water supply, that eventually ends up in the ocean. When we install our filter technology into the next generation of washing machines and when consumers put this filters into existing washing machines, we capture those microfibres before they're ever released. So that they can be disposed at safety and responsibly. Our solution is first of its kind. Simple & efficient filters, without the use of any chemical agents, with self-cleaning function. They're independently tested to catch over 80 % of fibres. Our filter has different applications mode. Suitable for industrial washing machines, new washing machine and for existing washing machines.
