Wastewater cleaning product secures Dutch investment

Monday, 17 June 2024

Aquatech Innovation Award winner Sudoc has received $4 million investment from water tech fund PureTerra Ventures, and its backer European Investment Fund (EIF), as it prepares to launch its NEAT sustainable cleaning products into the European water treatment market.

More efficient chemical reactions

Sudoc’s patented TAML catalysts mimic natural oxidization processes. Its NEAT brand, designed especially for the wastewater market, helps to make chemical reactions exponentially more efficient while reducing lifecycle costs.

Roger Berry, CEO of Sudoc, said: “It is an incredible honour to receive the endorsement and backing of PureTerra Ventures and their partners at the European Investment Fund. Given the EU’s commitment to lessening chemical burden and improving the purity of our planet’s water resources, we at Sudoc have seen the EU as core to our growth and impact.”

He added: “We look forward to working with PureTerra to bring our TAML chemistry to market.”


Potential to disrupt the market

NEAT’s potential was recognised last year after winning the BlueTech Forum 2023 Disrupt-O-Meter Award for the water technology with the most disruptive potential. NEAT uses fewer chemicals than comparable treatments, makes systems more efficient, effective, and can save up to 90 per cent of energy costs in electrochemical treatment systems.

Nic Pannekeet, partner at PureTerra Ventures, said: “Sudoc is a company that perfectly aligns with our own business ethos. We want to help develop disruptive water technologies that offer innovative solutions to enable a sustainable water cycle. Its innovative products are designed with the intention of putting chemistry back in balance with nature, and both human and environmental health.”

He added: “By removing harmful chemicals from a range of applications, including wastewater, we believe Sudoc is uniquely positioned to play a decisive role in removing toxic chemicals from our planet. This is why we are investing in Sudoc, because we believe in the company’s potential for helping to make the earth a cleaner, healthier place to live.”


Lower energy costs with more pollutants eliminated

In a series of research projects with Brunel University London, the original TAML catalysts were found to be ‘at least as effective’ in removing synthetic chemicals from wastewater as existing solutions but at a lower cost, on both a financial and energy use basis.

Sudoc’s products are designed to eliminate pollutants that are harmful to the environment, helping to make water resources more reusable, which in turn helps companies to meet EU regulation targets on increased water reuse.
