REMOVING MICROPLASTICS? AQUAPORIN INSIDE™ CAN BE THE SOLUTION

Aquaporin A/S is participating in the public private partnership, BONUS CLEANWATER – a collaboration between universities, high-tech companies, and wastewater operators.

The €3.8 million project is funded by the EU, via the BONUS programme, Vinnova (Sweden), Innovation fund Denmark, and the German Ministry for Education and Science. Aquaporin A/S will work alongside Veolia Water Technologies, Biofos A/S, Liqtech A/S, Primozone Production AB, Aalborg University, Aarhus University, Lund University, and The German Federal Institute of Hydrology (BfG).

The partnerships aim for reducing the input of microplastic and xenobiotics from wastewater led into the Baltic Sea by exploring, developing and comparing innovative eco-technology approaches. The Aquaporin Inside™ Technology will be tested as a part of the solution.

CEO of Aquaporin, Peter Holme Jensen comments: “The partnership holds a great purpose and will with a joint effort hopefully succeed in new methods for post treatment of waste water. At the same time, we will expand our potential markets; to remove such minimal particles as microplastic will be another solid confirmation of the Aquaporin membrane performance compared to conventional membranes. This is a great opportunity to drive our technology forward”

Public private partnerships is a strong part of the Aquaporin business model. Through the partnerships Aquaporin manages to accelerate market penetration, priming customers and obtaining market intelligence.
