About the entity

NX Filtration
NX Filtration is a fast-growing company that develops and manufactures hollow fiber membranes and modules for use in ultrafiltration and direct nanofiltration applications.

Ekopak, an ESG-driven company specializing in decentralized circular water solutions such as Water-as-a-Service (WaaS), selected NX Filtration, the global provider of breakthrough direct nanofiltration (dNF) membrane technology for pure and affordable water, to supply its dNF membranes for the extension of a rainwater recovery project in Belgium.

The project aims to reduce dependency on groundwater and uses rainwater, that is gathered in a local pond, as a source for high quality water production for industrial use. NX Filtration’s membranes play an important role in this process, as these efficiently remove micropollutants (including pharmaceuticals, medicine residues, PFAS and insecticides), color and selective salts, but also bacteria, viruses and nanoplastics, from water. The technology also offers strong sustainability benefits, as it requires much less energy compared to traditional treatment technologies and avoid the use of chemicals in operations.

After a series of pilot tests at the beginning of 2022, Ekopak developed a dNF based water treatment system with a capacity of 20 m3/h in the summer of 2022. Based on positive results this installation is now being expanded with 40 m3/h additional capacity.

Pieter Loose, CEO at Ekopak, comments: “We are happy to continue this partnership with NX Filtration, as their direct nanofiltration membranes offer unique benefits in the market. Both in terms of efficiently removing a wide range of contaminations as well as by offering strong sustainability benefits that are aligned with Ekopak’s core values. I look forward to jointly realizing this project as well as exploring further opportunities in the market.”

Michiel Staatsen, CEO at NX Filtration, adds: “We are proud to be working with Ekopak, clearly a likeminded partner with strong ESG values that is dedicated to contribute to the water transition. We believe our technology and Ekopak’s differentiating market proposition can unlock many new opportunities for sustainable water treatment.”
