Startup Europe Awards

Weteq is the Luxemburg winner for the Water category

Country: Luxembourg

Category: Water

Project Aim: Fresh water consumption is steadily increasing and water scarcity effects more and more regions globally. Moreover, wastewater generated by industries presents a major global environmental concern. There is, therefore, a severe and growing demand for improved and more efficient wastewater treatment technologies.

What does Weteq do?

Weteq was created to help industries that use large volumes of fresh water to use it more efficiently. Weteq provides customized chemical-based solutions that help these industries to re-use wastewater in the industrial process, to comply with regulations by removing the contaminants, to increase the capacity of the wastewater installation, to increase environmental sustainability and to save costs.

Why problems do Weteq solve?

The most common challenge of the industries is the compliance to continuously tightening water-related regulations and the desire to achieve self-initiated sustainability goals such as water preservation. Another challenge that we often observe is capacity constraints which can be mitigated by the optimization of the wastewater treatment process. Weteq’s tailor-made solutions help to overcome these challenges by the efficient removal of contaminants such as organic waste, color and heavy metals from waste water.

What did Weteq accomplished?

Weteq creates tailor-made solutions for customers with the best available technologies in the market. In addition, Weteq has developed proprietary solutions, which are patent-protected. In fact, Weteq is an R&D focused company and our goal is to underpin innovations and novel developments with IP. We believe that a strong portfolio of patents is key to our long-term success. We are currently reaching out to prospects and are seeking opportunities to apply our proprietary solutions to important industry challenges.

What does Europe represent for the company?

Europe is seen as the place where the industry applies innovative and high-quality products that help to use water in a sustainable way. As Europe is highly industrialized and developed, the success of Weteq in Europe can be extended to other regions. Value-generating projects are the key focus of our actions and we see Europe as our primary market for starters. So far, our prospective clients are in Luxembourg, Switzerland, Belgium, Austria, UK and Germany. We are also looking forward to expanding our coverage to other European countries and internationally in a focused manner.
