Tilek AB

Tilek Aktiebolag is a Swedish company which has developed a new process to remove harmful components from ground water in order to produce drinking water quality.

The work is concentrated on elements such as arsenic, lead and uranium. They are present in ground water at too high concentrations in many countries in the world.

The process for their removal is based on the use of oxides of iron and manganese.  A combined solid product of these compounds has been demonstrated to have excellent capacity to eliminate the elements mentioned.

The process developed is named Tilaquas.  It takes place in two stages: In a reactor tank followed by a particle separation stage.

Six commercial installations have been built. An additional contract for a Tilaquas installation in Sweden with capacity to remove lead, uranium, nitrite, iron and manganese with a capacity for 15 households has recently been signed.

Standard equipment is used.  A normal pressure tank is used as reactor. A suspension of the solid particles is fed by a small membrane pump into the water at times when water is flowing into the tank.  Due to turbulent conditions inside the tank the contact between solid particles and the incoming water is efficient. A normal sand filter with automatic flushing is used for separation of the solid particles with its impurities.

Tilek is looking for an established company in the field with good knowledge of the market not only in Sweden but also in other countries for cooperation in the further commercialization of the process.

Again´s solution captures nutrients from both WC and waterless toilets. Our unique additive ZeoPeatTM , made from natural and richly available components, captures more than 95% of phosphorous and more than 70% of nitrogen and potassium from the liquid part. The wet fertilizer can be locally dried and can be used as powder or pelletized in agriculture.

From biogas to electricity

Againity has developed an innovative system producing electricity from heat in biogas boilers, gas engines, gas turbines and any other heat source from 90 degrees Celsius. The system is based on the ORC (Organic Rankine Cycle) technology and an in-house developed steam turbine. The system can utilize heat down to 90 degrees Celsius and still have a short payback time for systems down to 20 kW. Today four ORC systems are up and running on the Swedish market where biogas from waste water treatment plants have become a major customer segment. The ORC system is delivered pre-fabricated and installed by a simple pipe connection of the heat source and a cable to the power grid. It is fully automated and a TCP/IP connection allows convenient monitoring and remote control. The turbine system consists of high-quality components, designed to last long periods without maintenance. At Againity we happily help with suggestions of technical set-up and financial calculations for potential projects.
