Ferrate finishes first
Water technology company Ferr-Tech has won the Water Alliance Innovation Stimulation (WIS) Award 2022 at the European Water Technology Week (EWTW) in Leeuwarden, for its ferrate (VI)-based water treatment innovation.
The company has developed a process by which ferrate (VI) becomes stable and sustainable for industrial wastewater treatment use.
Judith le Fèvre, director of marketing & public affairs at Ferr-Tech accepted the award in Leeuwarde.
Ferrate(VI) is a strong oxidant used for water treatment of industrial wastewater and has the advantage of being environmentally friendly and biodegradable.
Until Ferr-Tech's innovation, it has been extremely difficult to produce stable ferrate (VI). Now, the company said it has developed a stable, energy-efficient and circular model for industrial wastewater treatment.
