German Innovation Award for Wasser 3.0
German Design Council has honored companies with the German Innovation Award
With this award, the renowned institution recognizes meaningful product innovations that are, on the one hand, forward-looking, and on the other hand distinguish themselves through user-centered development, thus making our daily lives better and easier.
German Innovation Award 2021 in Gold
- the highest award given by the jury - is Wasser 3.0 in the competition class 'Excellence in Business to Business' in the field 'Chemical Industry'!
This is what the jury writes about Wasser 3.0
"Microplastics and micropollutants can be detected almost everywhere today – in the ocean, rivers and lakes or in animals and human organs. Whereas conventional procedures for water purification – such as in sewage plants – often have their limits due to the complexity and diversity of soiling, Wasser 3.0 not only provides innovative solutions for detecting and removing harmful particles from water, but also considers their reuse. The solutions developed by Wasser 3.0 are affordable and easy to integrate, while at the same time being modular, scalable and low-maintenance.
An exemplary non-profit initiative that is committed to tackling a global problem," writes the jury in their statement.
Needless to say, we are very honoured and happy :)
