"I was already thinking about how to tackle the problem of wastewater pollution with microplastics for a few months when I suddenly had the idea: What if this is possible by an approach via hydrocyclone technology? That night, I sat down and worked on the initial idea."
Feeling very inspired, he began to adapt and develop the technology. "I gathered a team and we first went for start-up competitions and claimed our patents, then finally for the founding of ECOFARIO in 2018."
Today, ECOFARIO can efficiently and cost-effectively filter microplastics from wastewater without actually using a real filter. The regular filter system can't filter out these tiny particles and use a lot of power, so he wanted to use a more sustainable system.
