BlueTech Names 15 Water Technologies to Watch
Jun 04, 2019
The Innovation Showcase at BlueTech Forum 2019 will feature more companies than ever before. The 15 water technology companies taking part have been selected from across the world and boast highly innovative technologies addressing some of the water industry’s biggest challenges.
Technologies include a cloud-based artificial intelligence (AI) system for water main condition assessment, energy-efficient UV-LED drinking water disinfection systems and a bio-based adsorbent material that can be customised to capture micropollutants from wastewater.
BlueTech Forum takes place on 5-6 June in Kew Gardens, London, UK. The Innovation Showcase gives delegates the chance to hear directly from a rich mix of start-ups and global corporations bringing frontline research and development to effective implementation and commercial success.
Paul O’Callaghan, chief executive of BlueTech Research said, “The Innovation Showcase is a fantastic opportunity for delegates to hear more about the technologies BlueTech Research’s analysts are tracking throughout the world. The theme of BlueTech Forum 2019 is ‘innovating towards resilient water systems’ and the technologies selected by our expert analysts are those we believe have the greatest potential to drive resource efficiency and address water scarcity.
Fifteen to watch
The 15 technologies featuring in the Innovation Showcase at BlueTech Forum 2019 include:
Acuva - Canada – Advanced UV-LED drinking water disinfection systems.
Aqualia - Spain - Large-scale integrated microalgae-based wastewater biorefineries for the production of agricultural fertilisers, biostimulants, biopesticides and feed additives.
Aquatech – India - Advanced vacuum membrane distillation process that combines thermal and membrane treatment for direct treatment of reject reverse osmosis and brine streams to recover high-quality distillate and meet zero and minimal liquid discharge requirements.
CustoMem – UK - CustoMem Granular Media (CGM) is a bio-based adsorbent material that can be customised to capture micropollutants from wastewater, including pesticides and pharmaceuticals.
DeSaH – Netherlands - Decentralised wastewater treatment system which can generate biogas through anaerobic digestion, produce fertiliser through struvite precipitation and recover greywater for reuse.
Electro Scan – USA - Machine-intelligent probes that automatically locate and quantify defects in water quality at a rate of litres per second.
Eliquo Water – Germany – EloVac-P is a system for removing phosphorus from wastewater. Digested sludge is degassed prior to dewatering and the phosphorus is precipitated in the vacuum reactor tank and retained as micro-crystals in the sludge after dewatering.
Fracta – USA - A cloud-based technology employing AI to assess, calculate and visualise the condition of water distribution mains.
Iota Services – Australia – A company that harnesses, commercialises and shares innovations proven by Australia’s South East Water so other utilities around the world can benefit from reduced operating costs and improve their customers’ experiences.
LG Sonic - Netherlands - MPC-Buoy, is a floating, solar-powered system that combines real-time water quality monitoring, satellite data and ultrasound technology to control harmful algal blooms in large water surfaces.
Nijhuis Industries – Netherlands - Nijhuis Electro Osmosis (NEO) is a cost-saving and energy-efficient sludge management solution that can dewater sludge up to 40-50% dry solids.
PowerTech Water – USA - The capacitive coagulation (CapCo) process removes heavy metals from water streams without the use of chemicals, membranes, or adsorbents. Activated carbon electrodes and small applied potentials operate in an active filtration process to permanently remove metals with > 99% selectivity and no sludge production.
Typhon Treatment Systems – UK - World’s first validated LED-UV System, designed to treat continuous flow rates in the range suitable for industrial and municipal applications.
Vienna Water Monitoring Solutions – Austria – ColiMinder is a fully-automated rapid microbiological measurement technology measuring microbiological contamination in 15 minutes.
WaterMax – Switzerland - Proprietary aeration technology for hyper-oxygenation of wastewater in treatment applications. WaterMax technologies generate nanobubbles that improve efficiency, effectively reducing energy and operational costs.
