EPO – Finalist SMEs – Energy-efficient water purification, Peter Holme Jensen, Claus Hélix-Nielsen, Danielle Keller

Invention: Energy-efficient water purification

The high-tech electronics industry has developed an unquenchable thirst for “ultrapure” water (UPW), but conventional water filtration methods prove highly energy consuming and unsustainable. Modelled on naturally occurring water-purifying proteins, so-called aquaporins, the water filters invented by Danish inventor Holme Jensen and his team provide an energy-efficient method for supplying ultrapure water on an industrial scale.
