Kemco Awarded Patent for Kleenwater System
(August, 2022) Kemco Systems, of Clearwater, FL recently announced the award of a patent for their KLEENWATER™ system. The patented process employs the combination of Kemco’s ceramic membrane filtration system and specialized reverse osmosis technology which conserves water and thermal energy. The KLEENWATER™ system presents a cost-effective means of combating rising water, sewer and energy costs by removing emulsified, suspended and dissolved contaminants including PFAS and microplastics from wastewater without utilizing high volumes of chemicals. The process has demonstrated consistent reuse of 75-85 percent of a plant’s water and thermal energy in the same process, all while reducing their consumption of wash aisle chemistry. Kemco CEO, Tom Vanden Heuvel, shares,“This patent is recognition of Kemco’s pioneering approach to recycling wastewater and recovering thermal energy within the laundry market.” Congratulations to Kemco on this achievement!
