Other products

We developed a sand nanocomposite that can extract all heavy metals present in water. The activated sand can be used in simple filtration system and added in any existing filtration system as additional step or replace existing step. The technology is cost effective, does not need energy and works by simply letting the contaminated water going through the activated sand. All heavy metal ions (including As, Pb, Sn, U) grow on the surface of the sand to form an oxide or a metallic coating. When exhausted, the sand can be recycled and the coating can be harvested to promote circular economy. Our company can coat any type of support from sand to glass or ceramic with the active nanomaterial that enables the extraction of heavy metal ions, radioactive elements without extracting the good elements (Mg, K, Ca...).
