WATER TREATMENT MADE SUSTAINABLE
Atium’s reusable filter technology allows selective removal of mercury from water, in a more effective and sustainable way than ever before.
reducing emissions and operating costs
the reusable filter for mercury removal
We have developed new technology for effective and cost-efficient removal of mercury from fluids. The patent-pending technology is based on a reversible electrochemical process with incredible performance. Compared to conventional methods, our product is:
- Effective at removing low concentrations.
- Selective for mercury.
- Sustainable both in terms of cost and environment.
Mercury is, according to the WHO, one of the top ten chemicals of major public health concern. As such, effective and cost-efficient mercury removal is of increasing demand. Our technology can be adapted and scaled to several applications, read more about a few below.
applying modern research to help solve urgent climate issues
Based in Sweden, Atium is developing innovative water treatment technologies in an effort to contribute to a world where polluted waters are a thing of the past.

Björn and Cristian’s article on Atium’s technology was published in Nature Communications and receives wide international media coverage.
Atium traveled to Budapest to pitch in front of an international jury in the finals of the EIT RawMaterials Business Idea Competition, and managed to win the 2nd place and 5.000€.
Atium is named one of the 2018 winners of Göteborg Energi’s scholarship “Tänk:Om” and takes home 200.000 SEK. The scholarship is meant to help realize ideas and innovations that can have a drastic effect on the environment.
