Join Michiel de Jong at the Innovation Stage on June 3
May 16, 2022 (Carson, CA) — Moleaer, the leading nanobubble technology company, has announced that Michiel de Jong, Director of Business Development, Europe, will present on June 3 on the Innovation Stage at IFAT in Munich, Germany in Messe München.
IFAT is the world’s leading trade fair for water, sewage, waste, and raw materials management. This trade fair features industries from all over the world that provide a wealth of knowledge on trends and innovations. There are more than 300 speakers and a variety of formats that will offer an abundance of information and inspiration.
IFAT takes place from May 30-June 3 and Michiel will present on June 3 from 1-1:20 pm GMT+2 at the Innovation Stage. The presentation will cover how nanobubble technology is an innovative solution for removing surfactants to improve wastewater treatment process performance and energy efficiency.
Surfactants, such as soaps, detergents, and other cleaning compounds, are ubiquitous in wastewater and can negatively impact the environment and human health because they are not completely removed by conventional wastewater treatment processes, and they can accumulate in aquatic environments. Wastewater treatment plants stand to benefit greatly by pretreating wastewater with sustainable, chemical-free nanobubbles to remove surfactants and other contaminants that inhibit biological processes. Offering the first treatment of its kind, industrial-scale nanobubble generators can be used to remove surfactants and their toxic effect from wastewater, enabling higher biomass kinetics and best-in-class oxygen transfer rates, resulting in a lower cost to treat and paving the way to treatment intensification to deliver reliable, high-quality effluent in a smaller footprint and at a lower energy and capital cost than previously possible.
During a trial at Fallbrook Public Utility District’s wastewater treatment plant in Fallbrook, California, applying nanobubble technology at the headworks resulted in an increase of 60 percent more oxygen transferred and 45 percent more potential energy savings. The trial showed that nanobubbles could remove surfactants from wastewater to improve treatment efficiency and reduce oxygen.
To learn more about how nanobubbles are improving wastewater treatment efficiency and sustainability, join Michiel at the Innovation Stage on June 3 and visit our booth afterward to ask questions. Moleaer’s booth is in the Startup Hall (B4.139/338), booth 7.

Moleaer is an American-based nanobubble technology company with a mission to unlock nanobubbles’ full potential to enhance and protect water, food, and natural resources. Moleaer has established the nanobubble industry in the U.S. by developing the first nanobubble generator that can perform cost-effectively at municipal and industrial scale. Moleaer’s patented nanobubble technology provides the highest proven oxygen transfer rate in the aeration and gas infusion industry, with an efficiency of over 85 percent per foot of water (Michael Stenstrom, UCLA, 2017). Through partnerships with universities, Moleaer has proven that nanobubbles are a chemical-free and cost-effective solution to increasing sustainable food production, restoring aquatic ecosystems, and improving natural resource recovery. Moleaer has deployed more than 1500 nanobubble generators worldwide since 2016.

Nanobubbles are tiny bubbles, invisible to the naked eye and 2,500 times smaller than a single grain of table salt. Bubbles at this scale remain suspended in water for prolonged periods, enabling highly efficient oxygen transfer of dissolved gas in liquids. Nanobubbles also treat and reduce pathogens and contaminants of emerging concern as well as scour surfaces to break apart biofilm matrices (Shiroodi, S., Schwarz, M.H., Nitin, N. et al., Food Bioprocess Technol, 2021).
