Blue Tech Forum takes place on 5-6 June in Kew Gardens, London, UK. The Innovation conference gives delegates the chance to hear directly from a vibrant 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 most significant potential to drive resource efficiency and address water scarcity.”
“Companies are coming from Australia, North America, India and across Europe. I look forward to giving them a big welcome and introducing them to the partners who can make use of their expertise and help them scale and grow. ”
Let us now look at the 15 companies showcased at Blue Tech Forum 2019
Aqualia is a large scale integrated microalgae-based wastewater bio-refineries located in Spain which is used for the production of fertilizers used for agriculture, bio-pesticides and feed additives.
Aquatech is one of the top most companies in 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 in India.
DeSaH is a Netherlands based decentralised wastewater treatment system which can generate biogas through anaerobic digestion, produce fertilizer through struvite precipitation and recover greywater for re-use.
EloVac-P is a system for removing phosphorus from wastewater from Germany. The digested sludge is degassed before dewatering, and the phosphorus is precipitated in the vacuum reactor tank and retained as micro-crystals in the sludge after de-watering.
Fracta is from the USA. It is one of the cloud-based technology employing AI to assess, calculate and visualise the condition of water distribution mains.
An Australian company that harnesses commercialise and shares innovation proven by South East Waters of Australia, So that other utilised around the world can benefit from reduced operating costs to improve customer experience.
Nijhuis is a Netherlands based company that stands for Nijhuis Electro-Osmosis (NEO) which is a cost-saving and energy-efficient sludge management solution that can dewater sludge up to 40-50% dry solids.
PowerTech Water is an US-based company. 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.
UK’s World’s first validated LED-UV System, designed to treat continuous flow rates in the range suitable for industrial and municipal applications.
Austria, It is a fully-automated rapid microbiological measurement technology measuring microbiological contamination in 15 minutes.
Switzerland based proprietary aeration technology for hyper-oxygenation of wastewater in treatment applications. WaterMax technologies generate nano-bubbles that improve efficiency, effectively reducing energy and operational costs.
Acuva is an advanced UV LED drinking water and disinfection systems based in Canada.
UK based CustoMem Granular Media (CGM) is a bio-based adsorbent material that can be customised to capture micro-pollutants from waste-water including pesticides and pharmaceuticals.
American Machine-intelligent probes that automatically locate and quantify defects in water quality at a rate of LPS.
