But modern technologies for water purification consume a significant amount of electricity. When developing technologies at Dyclar, the key goal is to reduce energy consumption and provide efficient and durable designs.

The carbon intensity of 1 kWh equates to 358 g of CO2 (as of 2016). Treatment plants operate 8,700 hours a year. We carried out a comparative calculation of energy consumption for different technologies.

Thus, the use of Dyclar technology instead of the usual ultrafiltration leads to a 16% reduction in energy consumption and a reduction in CO2 emissions of 148 tonnes per year under the same operating conditions.

RESULT Sustainable development

Dyclar is more energy efficient than membrane and conventional technologies. When developing Dyclar technology, our main goal is to reduce energy consumption and provide efficient and durable design.


Resources Recycling Acid and alkali free
  • Less wash water consumption
  • Comparable energy efficiency with other clarification technologies
  • Filtering media produced from recycled polymeric material
  • All Dyclar components are recyclable
  • Dyclar uses mostly air for backwash

Goal 6

Ensure access to water and sanitation for all

Dyclar 2-in-1 technology provides an effective filtration of water with high-turbidity. Dyclar can be used in drinking water production and for municipal and industrial wastewater treatment.

Goal 13

Take urgent actions to combat climate change and its effects

geographic flexibility due to outsourcing of manufacturing practice (Reduction in Carbon Footprint resulted from elimination of the supply chain).

Goal 14

Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources

First, Dyclar technology provides the highest quality of wastewater treatment and produces an ideal environment for aquatic life. Second, Dyclar technology uses processed plastic (over 100 kg per equipment item). We convert plastic litter into a filtering bed, which means a double effect for maintaining clean oceans, seas, and rivers. Third, Dyclar reduces phosphates content in water that cause eutrophication in surface water.
