Ecofiltration Nordic AB

Ecofiltration is a leading environmental technology company which is developing, manufacturing and selling scalable Polonite phosphorus filters that remove and recover phosphorus from sewage water. The reactive filter media also has other good features that can be used to treat sludge, odour, disinfection and micro-pollutants. The filter media can be used as small filter solutions for private sewages, large filter solutions for wastewater treatment plants (WWTP), both municipal and industrial, and specialized solutions for agriculture and animal husbandry.

Phosphorus is a finite resource that causes eutrophication and needs to be returned to productive soil in a sustainable way. After treating wastewater, saturated Polonite is rich in phosphorus and can be used as a fertilizer that releases phosphorus in the same pace as the plant’s uptake.

Ecofiltration is headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden with 10 employees and have sold more than 6000 filters for private sewages and 200 small scale WWTP in Sweden. Ecofiltration is also operating in countries surrounding the Baltic Sea such as Poland, Russia, Germany and Baltic countries and also in selected countries like the UK. Pilot installations on large phosphorus filters are set up in Sweden, Russia and the UK. The technology is based on over 20 years of research at The Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden.

Join us in our mission for a better future. Filtering for life.

Aqua-Q

Aqua-Q is a Cleantech applied research export oriented company from Stockholm. The company has extensive experience from Swedish municipal and industrial water treatment.

Aqua-Q prioritises two environmental sectors in water treatment.

  1. Proven dynamic intelligent water sampler coupled with 24/7 early warning surveillance/monitoring system.
  2. Total removal of pharmaceutical residues and pathogens in water specifically from MBR (Membrane Bio Reactor) effluent.

1) To overcome the limitations of random sampling Aqua-Q developed AQUATRACK® an intelligent dynamic water sampler coupled with an early warning system, patented technology. This is the first time the management can have access to correct real time microbiological sampling. AQUATRACK® combines the strength of real time dynamic sampling and early warning system to create an efficient cost effective and novel tool for management to mitigate against the significant threat of water borne pathogens like parasites (Cryptosporidium and Giardia) and bacteria (E.coli).  Early Warning System, AQUATRACK® together with our quick bacteria analysing kit, MultiReader, is a powerful tool for quality assurance of a process.

2) Besides AQUATRACK® Aqua-Q provides its experience, knowledge and expertise of ozone water treatment (mixing of gas and water, choice of material and measuring technology) which provides cost effective modular ozone polishing system to eliminate both pharmaceutical residues and pathogens in effluent water.

Aqua-Q’s technologies 1) and 2) can be combined for quality control of drinking water, reuse of water, reclaimed water and recycled water.

Flocazur

Flocazur is a new disruptive bio economy technology that only uses natural forces and consists of one step only – four to five different reactions in one reactor with big impact, for separation of particles, oils and ions from liquids/water.

The technology is a very effective transformation/separation technology based on the use of natural physical and chemical forces that bind particles. These reactions together form effective coalescence – the formation of homogenized sludge. The innovative reactor is designed to fast and effective maximize coalescence and by that obtain homogenized sludge that is easy to separate. This makes it possible to avoid or reduce the use of chemical polymers. The reactor is very flexible, it can be scaled into different sizes and could constitute a whole treatment installation or be part of an already existing treatment plant.

We have validated the technology for treatment of heavy polluted process liquids from the car/metal industry together with a big international German company with very good results and for Recirculating AquacultureSystem (RAS) also with very good results. European fisheries fund and Havsmiljöfonden – Swedish government, funded the three-year validation project for aquaculture.

Our IP strategy comprises patents in both the USA and China and we are interested in cooperation with a company, that after positive testing of the technique, would be interested in a licence agreement.

Carex of Sweden

We recognize that the current paradigm based on linear use of water has to be replaced by solutions based on knowledge of ecosystems and food-webs. Water cannot be substituted. It must be treated as an essential part of circular economy, allowing for repeated regeneration and reuse.

CAREX capitalize on several proven biotechnological inventions with strong scientific backup. These are market-tailored, onsite solutions for efficient treatment of wastewater, regeneration of usable water, and for the restoration of heavily polluted surface waters including landfill leachates. Our value propositions draw from decades of international experience and business excellence.

We unite interdisciplinary scientists and business partners engaged in decentralized solutions that create lasting environmental and economic values. We offer cost-effective, sludge free alternative to capital-intensive infrastructures that defy the criteria of sustainability. We believe that man-made problems have to be solved at their source by replicating waste-free ecosystem solutions.

Pixact

Pixact develops and supplies online process measurements based on digital imaging. The company started as a spin-off from academic research on 2006.

The Pixact technology is based on high-magnification imaging of process suspensions followed by real-time computational image analysis to retrieve desired measurement information. This technology allows our customers to monitor and control their processes efficiently leading to improved performance and even more simple operation. The application areas often comprise critical process steps, which previously have not be monitored or controlled online. Typical measurement results include the distributions and trends for the particle size, morphology and color, Here the particle refers to any dispersed phase element, such as bubble, droplet, fiber, cell etc.

In addition to complete measurement systems, Pixact offers contact research and analysis services. Our references include several applications in the pulp & paper, water treatment and chemical industries, such as general particle diagnostics, flotation, flocculation, crystallization and polymerization.

Beyond Clean Water

Swedrop AB and our sister company Swecin AB are fully owned by Beyond Clean Water AB (BWC). The owners of BWC are a small group of private investors and individuals. We are committed to developing innovative products that contribute to keeping our limited supply of water clean.

SweDrop, the disposable floating storm water filter is an innovation that dramatically changes the cost structure of cleaning storm water at the source, in the storm water drain.

Swedrop is a disposable filter, which floats in the standing water of the storm water drain. Drop in – let it work – exchange. Swedrop is simply dropped in to the storm water drain, where the absorbents work on incoming water, on surface water and on standing water. The filter extracts hydrocarbons, chemicals and heavy metals from the water. Typically for a year before it is ready for exchange.

DyeCoo

DyeCoo is the world’s first supplier of a water & process-chemical-free textile processing solution. Its revolutionary CO2-based and industrial proven dyeing process makes textile dyeing sustainable, efficient and profitable. We want to lead the textile industry towards a lean and clean future. We believe that our revolutionary CO2-based technology will replace water-based dyeing technology around the world, setting the new standard in the textile industry.

Textile dyeing has been synonymous with water and water pollution for centuries. The textile industry is the second largest polluter of drinking water. No matter how sophisticated water- based dyeing technologies have become, the fact is: a lot of water is still being polluted. No one thought this would ever change. Even when CO2-based technology was developed as an alternative, there were plenty of doubts. Can this new technology be efficient? Can it be profitable? Can it be scaled? DyeCoo has answered all these questions by proving its technology on industrial scale.

DyeCoo, based in Weesp, the Netherlands has more than 15 years of experience and knowledge in CO2 technology and the design and engineering of CO2 equipment.
