Due to the continuous increase of the world's population & increasing demand for water, it is crucial that we direct our efforts into recycling leachate and industrial wastewater and also the extraction of secondary raw materials from such wastewater. With the novel HMRecycle system, which will include a state of the art nano pre-treatment cartridge, we will enter a global, fast growing market for wastewater treatment technologies. With the novel HMRecycling system, we will primarily focus on compost landfills, which collect process different types of organic waste and industries/industrial plants that produce water with a high content of heavy metals. With this treatment plant we will target wastewater containing copper, zinc, cadmium, chrome, nickel, lead & mercury. With an integrated nano pre-treatment cartridge before the MBR reactor, these metals can be extracted from waste water. Furthermore the recycled heavy metals can be sold as secondary raw materials to the metal processing industry, the automotive industry or as an independent product on open market.
At the initial stage of launching the new treatment plant, we will focus on the European market and then into the markets of North America and Asia. We will use the existing marketing channels and long-term strategic partnerships of IOS, as well as the existing contacts of our project partner Roto Grad.
Active marketing through joint appearances of both partners at various fairs as well as advertising through professional magazines, e-mail and social networks will also be vital for the long term success. The goal is to create added value and present our treatment plant as an advanced and efficient product that will help customers reduce the consumption of fresh water, to ensure better quality of wastewater, to establish a closed water circuit in the production process (reuse of wastewater), reduce operating costs and negative impacts on the environment with easy handling.
