MOL catalyst technology from Merseburg across the pond – MZ-Web.de on 2016/09/22 (only available in german)
“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. ”
Clean 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.
With the project “Our Water for today and tomorrow” – Chemical-
free water treatment the MOL Katalysatortechnik GmbH is one of the 100 lucky winners of the contest “excellent places in the country of ideas” in 2016.
Under the motto “neighborhood creates innovation – Community as model for success”, the project “excellent places in the country of ideas” provides an convincing answer to the question how collective action can provide innovative solutions to tomorrow’s challenges. With the competition commend the initiative “Germany – Land of Ideas” and the German Bank pioneering ideas that exploit the potential of neighborhood within the meaning of community, cooperation and networking, thus creating added value for society to solve current or future challenges.
Among approximately 1,000 applications the project with the title “Our water for today and tomorrow” – Chemical-free water treatment was chosen by a jury as one of 100 excellent places in Germany.
74 candidates were nominated as the most innovative company for the Hugo-Junkers-Price Sachsen-Anhalt. On 12.15.2015 the MOL Katalysatortechnik GmbH and 14 other companys gets awarded by the Hugo-Junkers-Price in Merseburg Ständehaus.
