we are “Green Leader”!
the “Global Innovation Summit” awarded fluvicon the title “Best Green Start-up” in 2021
Our founder presents our technology and the market in a nutshell:
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:
✓ 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
our core Technology
Unique features are two patented processes using the principle of forward osmosis. In contrast to every other membrane or filter process, Ionosmosis can be used to produce clean drinking water or industrial water from raw water of almost any consistency, i.e. dissolved components (e.g. salt, sugar, foreign ions) and undissolved components (e.g. oil, organic matter, suspended solids) are separated cleanly. Osmodialysis, on the other hand, enables the purification of salt water, e.g. the clean separation of oil and salt water, in a continuous membrane process.
06/2022: Pilot production set up at the new site in Graz. Containerized ionosmosis and osmodialysis plants will be manufactured here beginning 2023.
02/2022: Commissioning of our first commercial plant for the treatment of difficult-to-treat aluminum die casting wastewater
10/2021: Closing of the first major financing round with a total volume of € 2.25 million. A further € 3 million is optional. Main investor is the Norwegian Norwex Green Invest AS.
04/2021: fluvicon Industries acquires German BMBF project with a project volume of € 1.9 million for the remediation of mining damages in ground and surface waters.
03/2021: We are „Green Leader“ ! The „Global Innovation Summit“ selected fluvicon as „Best Green Start-Up 2021“!
03/2021: Foundation of the German subsidiary fluvicon Industries GmbH in Frickenhausen near Stuttgart.
03/2019: First successful feasibility studies on a ton scale
05/2018: 1. prize at the Agri Water Challenge, Cape Town, South Africa
02/2017: 2. international patent filed
08/2016: 1. international patent filed
11/2014: funded project by FFG in the amount of 198.000€.
05/2013: Foundation of fluvicon
That’s how fluvicon is perceived internationally:
[…] [fluvicon’s] technology is quickly propelled into the game-changing realm of improving the world on a potentially massive scale.
We presently support and advise fluvicon GmbH in the roll-out of a groundbreaking, innovative water processing technology for a wide range of applications.
Karl Fink GmbH
The principle of forward osmosis combined with the know-how of the fluvicon team are the ideal combination in the treatment and further processing of our difficult die casting wastewater.
Due to its great robustness and energy efficiency, forward osmosis is the obvious choice for many industrial applications and public supply and treatment needs.
