HYDROMARS participates with leading institutes and multinationals in several European research programs to separate different types of wastewaters into absolutely pure water.
The HYDROMARS system is characterized by a technical soundness, TRL 6 (proven in industrial environment), low demand for electricity, no demand for chemicals, no demand for filter change, low running costs, reduced mass and volume as well as robustness of the whole system. As a result, HYDROMARS has developed ZLD processes enabling water independence for long space missions. Various third-party tests have shown that our technology efficiently separates difficult waste waters, such as pharmaceuticals and poisonous metals, better than any other state-of-the-art methods that are presently developed or investigated in space research.
Most spare parts of the system can be printed by 3D printers on the spaceship and Operations and Maintenance (O&M) works will be uncomplicated. All this makes HYDROMARS a game changer and long space missions’ enabler. HYDROMARS can break the actual impasse and address customer`s pain points in water management in space. It provides ultra-efficient water recovery technology (purification of any type of wastewater from all contaminants) and is powered by low temperature heat.
