Cutting-edge fluid intelligence technology engineered for the adsorptive elimination of micropollutants.


  • Nanocarbon® replaces the 4th purification step
  • Nanocarbon® eliminates up to 99% of ultra-fine microplastic particles
  • Nanocarbon® eliminates up to 98% of pertinent trace substances

Nanocarbon® is a sophisticated suspension with biophysical adsorption properties at the nanoscale. It comprises functionalized carbon nanoparticles meticulously combined with specific cationization, bioactivators, and essential bulk elements.


In today’s world, anthropogenic trace substances or micropollutants are ubiquitous, ranging from synthetic compounds like active pharmaceutical ingredients, cosmetics, and pesticides to industrial chemicals. Even at low concentrations, these substances pose human and ecotoxicological risks. Originating from various sources such as households and industries, they find their way into wastewater treatment plants and eventually permeate the water cycle.


Current wastewater treatment technologies struggle to effectively retain or degrade this diverse array of trace substances, leading to pollution in rivers, lakes, groundwater, and drinking water.


Conventional wastewater treatment processes currently lack adequate measures to effectively address the growing menace of microplastics, particularly the minuscule plastic particles that pose significant health risks.


Thanks to the unique configuration of Nanocarbon®, which maximises its active surface area, even small doses within the existing purification system can efficiently remove anthropogenic trace substances, microplastic particles, and AOX in a low-energy manner. Administered directly into the activated sludge of the aeration tank, it ensures thorough mixing and sufficient contact time for optimal performance. This cutting-edge process effectively mitigates fouling and scaling in biological systems, thus maintaining operational efficiency over time.
