Wasser 3.0 PE-X

A data-driven technology for water without microplastics.

With Wasser 3.0 PE-X® we innovate a filter-free, highly efficient removal and reuse of microplastics from waters using non-toxic materials + clump & skim technology. As a world´s first, this includes a simple detection. Removal takes place in tailor-made process-integrated plants. Usually, we implement our rental model for a long-term feasibility study. And collect process data for the installation of continuous operations. A reactor equipped with a stirrer helps to localize the particles, the magic reagents called hybrid silica gels initiate the clump and skim technology. After just minutes we got larger agglomerates, like popcorn-like clusters, floating on the surface. In the end: Easy separation and reuse of waste, e.g. as construction material. In sum, we provide: 95 % microplastic removal 90 % water reuse. 90 % process chemical reuse. 100 % waste reuse 50% less energy required. 50 % less CO2 footprint = a complete sustainability upgrade of processes.

The environmental benefits

  • Up to 95+% removal efficiency for various waters and contaminations of microplastics, low-cost, e.g. industrial application: reproducible 95+% removal rate, re-circulation of water is possible
  • Works for all polymer types and the main micropollutants, scalabe process, without filter, in a stable process; is low-maintenance, modular and scalable, cost-and resource-efficient and eco-friendly, various amounts of polluted water could be treated
  • Improvement in water quality, sludge quality, processes stability (no blocking), e.g. continuous water in-and outlet, parallel connection or series connection (water treatment at the same time or one after the other)
  • At least 80% improvement of water quality and at least 40 % more process stability due to microplastic removal
  • 100% prevention of the entry and distribution of microplastics in the ecosystem

The Financial benefits

  • Our material & technology is 20+ % cheaper than the mainstream alternatives (depending on pollution factor and process, no implemented expensive process control system needed)
  • The applicants of Wasser 3.0 PE-X usually has a return on invest within less than 3 years.
