A Dutch company won three prizes at the International Tech Fair Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
Hydraloop, a water recycling installation for homes, became “best of the best” in addition to “best startup” and “best sustainable product”. With that it beat more than four thousand other companies.
With the device, for example, shower water can be reused for the toilet. It purifies by, among other things, a UV lamp and microorganisms.
Since the company from Leeuwarden won the prizes, orders have been pouring in. “They come from all over the world and especially from Australia,” says a spokesperson.
‘Giant step further’
The company is part of the Dutch mission Techleap.nl, which is led by Prince Constantijn. Mona Keijzer, State Secretary for Economic Affairs and Climate, is also taking part.
She said about the Dutch invention that “it can help the world a giant step forward when it comes to saving water, and at the same time it is a product that is in demand and that you can earn from it.”
The device costs around 3500 euros, ultimately you can save about half the water with it.
