Wastewater treatment plant of Riu Sec in Sabadell (Barcelona) 600x450

In 2003 LEQUIA researchers founded spinoff Sanejament Intel·ligent S.L. – SISLTECH .  SISLtech’s principal activity was the design, development and implementation of new generation tools (intelligent tools) for the supervision, advanced control, management and optimization of processes that take place on water and energy frameworks: water treatment, anaerobic sludge codigestion and biogas cogeneration.

In 2022, LEQUIA researchers founded new spinoff company Ecomemb devoted to the recycling of membranes for water treatment. Ecomemb collects discarded filters from large seawater desalination plants, treats them, and sells them to other types of smaller facilities, which treat water for irrigation, industrial processes and wastewater, among others. We help companies to improve their sustainability from the circular economy perspective. Information on associated research can be found here.
