Explore our innovative water solutions


Tap into the potential with our solutions

HYDROHM is established in 2020, as a spin-off company of Ghent University. We build on years of experience in research and development, and bring together the latest innovations in electrochemical engineering.

We believe in the electrification of water treatment as an opportunity to shift towards more local and sustainable water systems, with an increased focus on quality and health. Instead of dosing chemicals to treat water, electrochemical technologies use electricity, which is a renewable and traceless input, that can be generated or connected to anywhere.

  • Driven by electricity. Renewable and economic
  • No added chemicals. Avoid safety risks and residues
  • Local water treatment. Higher water efficiency at your site
  • Enhanced process control. Maximize quality, minimize cost

Collaboration with SEMiLLA Maritime Solutions to promote space technologies for wastewater recycling on earth


We are happy to team up with SEMiLLA Maritime Solutions in a new consortium to promote space technologies for wastewater recycling on earth. The European Space Agency has commissioned a mobile unit for demonstration of urine treatment and greywater recycling. We will finalize and deploy the unit next spring!

On December 13th, we welcomed Christophe Lasseur, Head of the MELiSSA program of ESA and Marc Vallois from SEMiLLA Maritime Solutions in Nazareth.

Mobile URIDIS unit


Together with our manufacturing partner Spraying Systems Autojet Europe we have designed a compact and mobile URIDIS installation, an important step in our mission to enable safe and sustainable toilets. All hardware is integrated in one skid that can treat 25 L of urine (100 toilet visits) and produce 75 L of disinfecting flush water per day.

E-HYDRO project in the spotlight


HYDROHM and Pureblue Water teamed up in a CrossRoads2 Sustainable Energy project to develop an electrochemical technology that enables cost-effective and energy-neutral decentralised water and sludge treatment. In this video, our project engineer Fabian De Wilde explains together with Alessandro di Biase from PureBlue Water our E-HYDRO technology.
