THE KLAR2O MICROPLASTICS WATER FILTER

 

Up to 300 different plastic particles are in one liter of drinking water, that were partly absorbed by our bodies and accumulate in our cells and organs and can cause serious health damage in humans.

 

We at Klar2o developed a special biochemical adsorbing coating, which is able to bind microplastics of all kinds and sizes by molecular interaction-forces from water.

 

Our patented sustainable smart surface filtertechnology is recyclable and regenerable and recently approved by independed analysis laboratories.

 

Our innovative approach can bind microplastics pressure free, is economical, smaller and has a higher efficiency than most filters on the market.
