Zymatic - The only (en)zymatic sand
Zymatic was created by merging the expertise and knowledge within three areas of technology: Enzymes, Enzyme immobilization and Material development.
The combination of enzymes, material and enzyme immobilisation techniques have resulted in a highly flexible water treatment material, the zymatic sand. Using a sand-like material allows for easy scalability and flexibility in both design and application.
By applying different enzyme types, different chemical treatment mechanisms can be added directly to the surface of the material. This enables an adaptation of the treatment technology and chemical treatment mechanisms based on the customers' needs. In other words, with the help of the Zymatic platform technology, we can program the mechanisms of water treatment
The Zymatic solutions provide water treatment solutions based on a mixture of different chemical reaction mechanisms. This feature offers advances over many older and conventional water treatment methods that have only one reaction mechanism. In addition, Zymatic solutions can be adapted or upgraded to future needs without adding installation changes.
Our experts are your experts
Zymatic strive to always provide you with knowledge and insights
The technology platform consists of three main areas; Enzyme development, Material development and Immobilization methodology.
Through the combination of these three development areas Zymatic can apply enzyme activity on almost any water or process environment. This allows for high performing treatment which reuses the activity of the enzyme for each volume of water.
The technology can be applied to various industry processes and streams, municipal wastewater plants and much more.
In the front-line of advanced biotechnology
Using Nature's own catalysts, enzymes, we can target and treat almost any organic compounds.
We can develop and select enzymes based on a specific need. Adapting the enzymes activities to the targeted process or water environment results in high performance.
Inorganic materials with the best possible characteristics
We develop and use materials that have been proven useful in water environments. Using inorganic materials that are acessible all over the world we can keep costs down for our customers.
The material should be porous and have a high surface area to increase the contact the water has with the material.
Creating the bond between the material and enzyme.
Enzyme immobilization gives the possibility to reuse the enzymes for every new volume of water.
The applied immobilization methods give high enzyme loadings, enhanced enzyme activity, a prolonged life-length of the immobilized enzymes and are developed for large-scale production.
Nature´s own catalysts are facilitated for high performing treatment
There are billions of enzymes in the world and we have developed methods to use their catalytic properties in designing treatment steps.
Like programming, we can add treatment mechanisms (the enzymes) to the surface of a material. Enzymes can be broad, semi-specific or specific which allows for a high flexibility when designing a treatment step for our customers.
Enzymes do not need electric energy to perform the treatment. This allows for the treatment step to be designed with minimum energy consumption. Generally, enzymes are considered as biodegradable, renewable and environmentally friendly catalysts.
High performing material with large surface area allows for easy to use and low cost solutions
The sand-like material is selected based on its particle size, surface chemistry, and other parameters. By applying materials having larges surface areas and porosity, the contact time between the pollutant compounds in the water and the enzymes is increased.
Zymatic has been working with many materials over the years and thereby gained the knowledge of how to select materials based on the treatment profile.
Our materials are selected based on their overall environmental performance. The materials can be reactivated, sent to landfill, or even used in various productions of other products after the water treatment.
Choosing the right material for a treatment step increases both performance and cost-effectiveness.
Creates a chemical bridge between inorganic material and enzyme
Zymatic has developed enzyme immobilization methods suitable for different material types and different material surface modifications.
The applied immobilization methods give high enzyme loadings and a prolonged life-length of the immobilized enzymes
The applied enzyme immobilization methods are developed for large-scale production and selected based on the process, its conditions and the targeted treatment.
