Membion secures €5M for wastewater treatment tech
German wastewater treatment company Membion announced an investment of around €5 million led by TechVision Fonds (TVF) and DeepTech & Climate Fonds (DTCF). The company develops and produces membrane bioreactor (MBR) modules for wastewater treatment.
With the multi-patented technology, municipal and industrial wastewater treatment plant operators can meet the growing demands on water quality and significantly reduce operating costs. Membion founders Dr Klaus Vossenkaul and Dirk Volmering studied process engineering at RWTH Aachen University and have over 20 years of experience in the industry.
The company’s unique membrane filters, so-called hollow fibre MBR modules, achieve significant energy and thus, operating cost savings while maintaining space efficiency. There is no need for secondary clarification as in conventional systems.
