Networking opportunity

Opportunity to collaborate with Turkish innovators

Selected Turkish companies in the waste water management and solar sectors are visiting the UK from 22-24 May as part of Innovate UK’s Newton Fund programme. UK companies can benefit from the programme by:

  • Meeting and discussing potential synergies for joint R&D initiatives and sharing know-how and expertise;
  • Joining a delegation visit to Turkey in Autumn 2019 funded by the Newton Fund

The visiting companies and their partnering objectives are:

Aquamatch: Industrial water treatment, desalination

  • Sharing knowledge on the future of water treatment technologies. For example, we would like to share our experience with renewable-based water treatment systems.
  • Sharing insights on market expansions. We are active in 34 countries, and still want to discover new market opportunities.
  • Developing a deeper understanding of water treatment sector in the UK and wider Europe.

Arges: Industrial wastewater treatment, sludge drying, membrane modules

  • Low Heat Sludge Dryer: Reduction of heat loss, specification of safety and measuring equipment, overall improvement of the design
  • Solar Sludge Drying: Develop the operating system with additional heat source and incineration of dried sludge to heat a greenhouse, resulting in reduced carbon footprint
  • Improve Membrane Modules
  • Improve the design of Modular WWTP, especially for IFASS applications

OTTO Technological Cleaning Solutions: Eco-friendly washing technologies, water conservation

  • Know-how on hydrodynamics and manufacturing for development and improvement of our pressure pumps, which currently work at 6-9 bar with 4-6 litres/min water consumption.
  • Collaborating with cleantech companies that produce eco-friendly cleaning products in liquid form with the aim of developing foams, gels and rinse-less washing materials.
  • Development of unique products that can easily clean metal surfaces without abrasion or leaving residual; testing the machine on site with a range of surfaces.

Lucida Solar: Renewable energy, solar energy, solar thermal, CSP 

  • Collaborating with existing companies to improve solar CSP technology
  • Developing our current automation system with strategic partners
