At DESOTEC, we’re committed to building a cleaner, greener world for all. With our unique, sustainable, mobile filtration solutions, purifying liquids and gases, we are committed to helping protect the planet by driving positive ecological change across all industries. DESOTEC’s closed-loop, full-service model is as unique as our clients’ needs. DESOTEC is a pioneer in the ‘filtration-as-a-service’ sector, providing clients with mobile plug-and-play activated carbon filters on an as-a-service basis. Conserving our planet’s precious natural resources is key to a greener future. At the core of DESOTEC’s circular model lies industry-leading reactivation, collecting spent ACn and reactivating it efficiently and safely in state-of-the-art, modern furnaces built over the year. Reactivating saturated carbon reduces the amount of virgin raw materials needed for filtration, closing the loop and improving sustainability. It also neutralises the adsorbed components (pollutants) and recovers them where possible.

DESOTEC already reactivates most spent carbon, and thanks to many years of R&D, we are now building an additional production facility in Roeselare to move the biogas market into a closed loop as well. This new, specially developed production facility is a real game-changer and the first of its kind in the world. It’s able to move the high sulphur-loaded spent carbon of the biogas market into a circular model, producing EU-based activated carbon and gypsum. DESOTEC’s filtration solutions are also a highly effective technology for removing PFAS from wastewater, groundwater and air emissions. By using our safe, legally compliant, and environmentally responsible technology, we can help the industry and our planet to get rid of these forever chemicals.

To ensure full compliance, we have devised, in collaboration with VITO, a validated and utterly unique method to accurately measure the level of PFAS adsorbed on activated carbon. As part of our mobile filtration solutions, we are proud to provide a comprehensive sustainability strategy to our clients. We collaborate with them to analyse their specific purification needs, customise our solutions, and implement them with precision.

Our mobile filtration solutions not only purify but also optimise processes, resulting in resource conservation (e.g. water) and reduced emissions. By establishing a close partnership with them, we help them run a business that respects the environment and their local community. Together, we make a positive impact on our planet. This also counts for our own operations and commitment to sustainability. From utilising eco-friendly materials in manufacturing to implementing green logistics, we practise what we preach. We’re continually researching and investing in R&D to stay at the forefront of sustainable innovation, ensuring that our solutions evolve alongside the dynamic needs of a rapidly changing world.

Partnership is key to our approach. We actively seek collaborations with like-minded organisations, academia, and governmental bodies to amplify our impact. In essence, our company embodies the fusion of sustainability and innovation. We don’t just dream of a cleaner, greener world – we’re actively building it, in Roeselare and the rest of the world.
