HISTORY

Xzero has developed a new technology for the manufacture of ultra-pure water.

Demo unit for Sandia, USA

Test unit for Sjöstadsverket, Stockholm, Sweden

Our equipment was selected for a test of recovery systems for semiconductor rinse water in an evaluation program sponsored by the US joint semiconductor research effort (Sematech) with finance from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the US Department of Defence. The evaluation was carried out by Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, New Mexico, US (www.sandia.gov). The conclusion was that the Xzero equipment in only two steps produced as pure water as was produced by conventional systems that use around twenty cleaning steps.

Since the tests were made at Sandia, Xzero has been working on long-time testing of the equipment, optimizing production methods and improving system design. Efforts have been made to increase the efficiency of the water and energy consumption, to develop auxiliary equipment and to develop still better membranes and new materials and manufacturing methods.

In 2018, a program to industrialize and market launch the first commercial product – LastRinse – began.
