MOL Katalysatortechnik GmbH energetic reuse of cooling water

By installing MOLLIK units from MOL Katalysatortechnik GmbH, the cooling water of the Rostock power plant is cleaned without the use of biocides or energetic radiation to such an extent that it can be used further in the nearby fertilizer plant. The energetic residual heat consumption of the cooling water discharge in the ammonia evaporation leads to an annual saving of 1,700 tons of  oil. At the same time, the entry temperature of the water into the Baltic Sea is significantly reduced.

With this concept, MOL Katalysatortechnik GmbH has applied for the prize of the Umweltallianz Sachsen-Anhalt (environmental alliance Saxony-Anhalt) 2016 and has become one of the finalists.

Award: Process ensures safe bathing – The MOL Katalysatortechnik GmbH in the press

“In the public indoor swimming pool of Merseburg the innovative mol-Lik process of MOL Katalysatortechnik ensures for a long time safe bath pleasure. “LIK” stands for light-induced catalysis. Light therefore supports the cleaning process, developed by CEO Dr. Jürgen Koppe and his team, which operates with the aid of ultra-thin mineral-metal foils. ”


1st International MerWaterDays – September 14 / 15, 2016

MerWaterDaysClean water is essential for a healthy life and well-being.

Maintaining this is equally important to many industries and production processes. However, water resources are under pressure due to human activities, with safe utilization of water constantly at risk, due in part to flood disasters, epidemics, infections, and the emergence of multi-resistant germs.

Water research is an ongoing international effort. The development and transfer of new knowledge, including practical conclusions gained from it, remains a worldwide challenge.

In Merseburg, a novel technology which has led to both a deeper fundamental understanding of the underlying reaction mechanisms and practical ways of treating water using minimal amounts of chemicals, was discovered nearly 10 years ago. Since then this technology has evolved into a multidisciplinary effort bringing safe, clean, and efficient water treatment solutions to many applications.

The aim of the 1st International MerWaterDays is to discuss the current status and knowledge of this technology and present examples and applications. A major emphasis is put on the discussion and interpretation of mechanisms and processes taking place within the water, and how this understanding will influence future research, development, as weil as create new opportunities. Lectures and discussions will be complemented by practical examples which demonstrate the use and performance of the technology.
