Solving the problem

efficient technology

Sustaintech has developed a new and effective technology that removes pharmaceutical and hormonal contaminants in both freshwater and seawater.

the solution to a growing problem

This is a significant breakthrough to solve a major and ever-growing problem of increased pollution of natural waters such as rivers, lakes, estuaries, fjords and open seas around the world.

small and compact plants

The Sustaintech wastewater treatment plants are compact, fully automated and require little maintenance.



The treatment plant can be placed as a polishing step after the regular cleaning.
Requires little area and maintenance.

Removes remnants of drugs and organic micro-pollutants.


Can be installed directly on discharges or in series with biological treatment plants.
Requires little area and maintenance.

Difficult contaminants can be reduced completely or significantly.
Decomposes heavily degradable molecules and organic micro-pollutants.
Removes odor and color, reduces COD, destroys oleic acids.


Compact wastewater treatment plants can be installed as close to the discharge source as possible in connection with separate buildings, departments or beds.

Removes remnants of drugs and antibiotic resistant bacteria.
Reduces the risk of not developing resistance to special antibiotics used only in hospitals, for example in the last phase of problematic infections.
Prevents negative effects on external environment. The cleansing is in line with the “green hospital” principle and gives a positive reputation.


Can be installed in wellboats, on barges or on land-based fish farms.
Requires little area and maintenance.

Removal of drug residues after bathing in cages or wellboats.
Can be used for both salt water and fresh water.

Measureable results

Drugs are specifically designed to act on living cells. Many pharmaceutical chemicals are designed to be readily degradable, to withstand chemical degradation as they pass through the human or animal body. They pose a special risk when they or their active metabolites or degradation agents enter, persist and spread in the environment.
