Ovivo operates Global Knowledge Centres and Research & Development (R&D) sites around the world, where scientists and engineers work in close collaboration with our partners to deliver innovative solutions in a wide range of advanced labs and technical service centres. These facilities also foster collaborative partnerships with businesses, governments, academics, and local communities.
The Swiss Global Knowledge Centre combines an Innovation Centre, Ultrapure water (UPW) plant, applications and prototyping workshops, and analytical laboratories. Our industry-leading innovations, expertise in advanced materials science, and best-in-class manufacturing, make next-generation technology a reality for our partners. At Ovivo we are pursuing new technologies and performance materials that enable UPW production to unparalleled levels of sophistication and reliability.
Every day, we solve our partners’ most significant water challenges and are honoured to be their partner of choice.
Water is a finite resource that must be treated, recovered and reused wisely. While membrane filtration is one of the best available methods for doing this, traditional membranes have many limitations and operational challenges.
SiC membranes achieve new levels of performance previously thought impossible. Their natural properties effortlessly attract water while repelling foulants, resulting in extremely high sustainable fluxes and reliable operations in high solids and oils. SiC is also one of the hardest materials in the world able to withstand the broadest range of temperatures, pH, chemicals, and pressures.
Cembrane SiC membranes combined with Ovivo’s system and process expertise offers limitless possibilities in how we can tackle today’s water treatment challenges more reliably, efficiently, and sustainably than ever before.
With a diverse application background including ultrapure water, municipal and industrial wastewater, and drinking water, SiC has changed the landscape of what a membrane is capable of doing.
