the Challenge

Fresh Water and Waste Water

Water is the issue of the 21st century.

You need fresh water for production?
Or to secure the fresh water supply?
For cooling tower applications or irrigation in the agricultural industry?

You have to deal with waste water that needs to be treated? And these streams still contain valuable commodities that you want to recover?

Than you probably already know that you’re facing a major challenge – like most Fortune 500 companies. And this challenge gets bigger every day: shrinking ressources, growing restrictions.

Please allow us to introduce you to the future of water treatment!

our Technology

Forward Osmosis

main principle

Our award winning technology is based on the principle of forward osmosis (FO) – not reverse osmosis (RO)! Thats the basic principle of every living cell. This way you can utilize the advantage that nature uses since billions of years:

process steps

The process consists of: 
◉ the osmosis step that pulls fresh water, and 
◉ a reconcentratio step (→ cyclic process) that reconcentrates the osmotic agent of the draw solution. Thereby the proces gets self-sustaining.

advantages

✓ half the energy consumption
✓ excellent retention
✓ excellent robustness
✓ hardly any fouling and scaling
✓ very high reliability
✓ consistent treatment quality
✓ very simple operation
✓ very low maintenance
✓ resistant against most chemicals
✓ ph-tolerant over a wide scale
✓ ideal for rough applications

the Company

fluvicon was founded in 2013 by physicist Thomas Grießler, and developes an osmotic process inspired by nature for water treatment and energy production (not reverse osmosis!)

fluvicon was able to secure some of the most prestigious high-tech funding, and already successfully finished two investment rounds.

Currently fluvicon focuses on Oil & Gas, Mining and Seawater Desalination, and leads international research consortiums dealing with these topics.
