Your water ecosystem green and circular?

Purify your wastewater with Ferrate(VI) and you’ll get the job done.

Keeping costs in check and meeting regulations can go hand in hand


Strict requirements for water quality

Discharging to surface water is expensive because of the pollution levy on substances such as phosphate.

In greenhouse horticulture, the emission of fertilisers and plant protection products will have to be close to zero by 2027.


Limited possibilities for reuse

Circular use of water is difficult because the hazardous chemicals that are used for water purification are hard to remove. In addition, over time, the pH and sodium levels in the water increase to a harmful degree.


Rising costs residual water treatment

The purification of wastewater is expensive due to energy intensive procedures with UV and ozone, as well as the frequent discharge of sludge.

This is what you can achieve with Ferrate(VI)

Decrease phosphate levels with 90%

With Ferrate(VI), you remove 90% of phosphate from the residual water. Ferrate(VI) replaces several hazardous chemicals from the purification process, such as chlorine and caustic soda. The process also reduces the need for nitric acid.

Reuse water

Thanks to the strong power of Ferrate(VI), It becomes possible to reuse much of the residual water. Contribute to the circular water economy and reduce the need for discharge.

Use less energy

Ferrate(VI) purifies water efficiently and reduces sludge. It replaces energy intensive and costly procedures, which use ozone and UV. Save energy and costs at all stages of the industrial process: from purification to discharge.


Meet the Waterproof 2027 requirements

Purify your water with Ferrate(VI) and eliminate the need to discharge to surface water. This will help you meet the requirements of Waterproof 2027.

Prolong lifespan of RO system

By purifying water with Ferrate(VI), you extend the service life of Reverse Osmosis systems. The membranes stay clean longer, enabling the system to work better.

Create less sludge

Ferrate(VI) densifies and reduces the amount of sludge. It is the most powerful oxidant in the world and strongly binds the particles of the residual product together.

Ferrate(VI) in practice

And discover how Ferr-Tech changes your wastewater treatment into a green, efficient and circular process. No strings attached!

Find the solution for your wastewater and let us analyse it in the Ferr-Tech WaterLab. We will identify the contaminants in your wastewater, to determine how Ferrate(VI) improves your process.

This gives you valuable insights into how Ferrate(VI) makes your water purification process green, efficient and circular. Moreover, we would be happy to discuss other challenges in the field of water treatment. We dare you to challenge us!

1. Analysis

Give us a sample of your most polluted wastewater. We will treat the water with Ferrate(VI) and work towards a solution.

2. Proposal

Based on the analysis, we will create a proposal for a green, efficient and circular water process.

3. Execution

Finally, we will demonstrate how you can easily apply one of our Ferrate(VI) products in your current water treatment system.

Wastewater purification in greenhouses

The greenhouse horticulture sector faces a challenge. By 2027, the emissions of fertilisers and crop protection agents must be virtually zero. In addition, a purification obligation has been in force since 2018: at least 95% of the crop protection agents must be removed from the water before it may be discharged. This means that circular water provision is more relevant now than ever. How do you achieve this in a sustainable and economical way?
