WaterWeave

WaterWeave offers a sustainable and long term solution for purification of stormwater from heavy metal ions. The technology consists of a textile covered with a biomass which, when in contact with water, attract metal ions. By using the textile for water purification, it is possible to create a flexible and cost effective solution.

Stormwater, which is another word for the rainwater that is falling on hard areas such as roads, has high levels of heavy metal ions which constitutes a health risk for humans and other living beings. WaterWeave is developing a purification system for stormwater and wants to be part of the solution for creating a sustainable and good water environment.

WaterWeave’s textile water purification system makes it possible to absorb and capture heavy metal ions in stormwater as early as in stormwater sewers and ponds. Entering early in the water treatment chain is important in order to get a large-scale effect when purifying stormwater. This means that the use of WaterWeave’s water purification system makes it possible for municipalities and industries to control the emissions of heavy metals. WaterWeave’s technology for water purification will reduce the emissions of heavy metals in stormwater by up to 80%.
