Women Entrepreneur Award 2023
Our innovative solution offers numerous advantages over traditional methods, including reduced capital and operational expenditures, compact size, and minimal waste sludge production
About the Winner
Iride Acque is an Innovative SME because innovate is our mission and is a Benefit Company because we try to contribute, every day, to the diffusion of a new water culture. We started in 2015, working in the sewage depuration business, having developed a unique ed patented technology called EMER.
It allows to purify and sanitize industrial sewage “in situ” giving back a product with features to be reutilized in the production cycle.
The technology is based on the catalytic oxidation process combined with a magnetic bar. It uses hydrogen peroxide, an eco-friendly oxidant and the nanotechnological catalyzer is obtained from waste batteries: this makes Iride Acque an extraordinary example of circular economy. More precisely, an example of double circular economy when our customers decide to reuse their waste water after purifying.
Today we are able to find the best solution for any request related to the treatment of water used by industry. We can do it because we have bought and we are buying companies that allow us to expand the range of our offer but we are also signing partnerships with companies that represent the excellence of our sector of activity: we want to give effective responses to those clients who ask to us to reduce their water footprint.
Our solution offers many advantages compared to traditional ones, such as lower CapEx and OpEx, smaller dimensions and lower waste sludge production. The solution meets the clients’ claims for: process simplification, compactness, modularity, flexibility
In addition, the technology could be integrated with traditional ones, improving the output’s features but avoiding the full plant replacement.
The use of hydrogen peroxide makes our plants capable of disinfecting sewage too. Viruses are extremely sensitive to oxidizers such as hydrogen peroxide which is at the basis of our purification process.
So our plants don’t require to be followed by a disinfection step and they are integrable within existent plants to guarantee disinfection.
