Summary

Summary: 
The Dutch SME has developed a rainwater purification system where rainwater can be purified into drinking water. The system has been developed and demonstrated and is now ready for the market. The system can be applied in household or industrial settings. The Dutch company is looking for partners in Europe with experience in rainwater harvesting, water filters, pumps and other technical related areas. To potential partners a commercial agreement with technical assistance is offered.

Description

Description: 

The Dutch SME offering the innovative technology, has over 25 years experience in water management. The company develops, produces and supplies smart purification systems for water for usage in households or other buildings.

The rainwater system purifies the rainwater. The intelligent treatment system ensures 100% microbiologically safe water. The rainwater is purified with a microfilter, active carbon filter, membrane filter (Ultrafiltration (UF)) and UV (ultraviolet) unit. The rainwater system is equipped with a double microbiologic barrier. Furthermore the system is tested fully automatic every day, which guarantees the quality of the water.

The system is suitable for:
- Homes and apartments (off-grid)
- Hotels and holiday homes
- Cattle breeding
- Food producing industry

Working principle (shown also in the image):
The rainwater is collected in a tank with a pre-filter. In the tank you attach a powerful pump that ensures sufficient water pressure. The rainwater system does the rest: when the rainwater enters, it is immediately purified, so that the water can be safely distributed to all taps throughout the building.

The company is looking for European partners preferably active in rainwater harvesting systems and with experience in water filter- and pump techniques. The partner will be responsible for sales, installation of the system and additional technical services on-site, such as the provision of a water storage tank with a pre-filter and pump system.

The Dutch SME will be the technology supplier, and can provide also key equipment. The partner can sell the solution as a turn key project to his customers. A commercial agreement with technical assistance is offered to potential partners.

Advantages & innovations

Cooperation plus value: 
The system contributes to a more sustainable future for water consumption where water is reused in a closed-loop system, rather than drained from our already parched rivers and lakes. Innovations are: - Double barrier principle - Built-in self-check: integrity test on the membrane filter - Intelligent control device - The unit is plug & play: easy to install, use and maintain
