The German technology company was established in 1995. The main field of action is developing new technologies/procedures in the chemical sector, like fertilizers but also in the management of wasteful by-products. These technologies are implemented by licence partners mainly in Europe. The company has developed a new technology using superabsorbent polymer (SAP) for efficiently granulating and drying sludges, filter cakes and pastes. The conventional disposal of sludges and pastes is very time- and cost consuming, as the mechanical granulation requires additional equipment and power supplies and the resulting granulate is still very heavy and only partly dried. Using SAP for the granulation of sludges/filter cakes eccalerates the process immensly (instead of more than 30 min it only takes 1 min!) and the resulting granulate is completely dry, small and fluffy and therefore it can be disposed of very easily. The granulation of sludges and filter cakes is primarily used in industries, where sludges and filter cakes are productional by-products, like the hydrometallurgic industries, ceramics production, paper manufacturing and others. Patents for this technology have been granted and it was tested for various amounts of sludges/filter cakes: tested quantities ranged from 5 kg to up to 130l.
The company is now looking for partners in Europe and the USA to help distribute and implement the technology within the above mentioned industries under a licence agreement. The partner should be a technology company in the environmental or industrial sector, like materials handling. The German company is offering all the know-how for implementing /distributing this new application.
