ABOUT BIOMICROGELS GROUP:
The BIOMICROGELS GROUP is an international fast-growing technology group of companies founded in 2012 by a team of engineers who created the groundbreaking Biomicrogels® technology aimed at solving global problems of saving fresh water and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Today BIOMICROGELS GROUP received the Ecolabel eco-certificate and was also recognized at the international G20 summit in 2021 as the best technology company "among the G20 countries" in the Cleantech category.
Biomicrogels® are biopolymers and their advanced modifications, which are brand-new and internationally patented, that replace standard synthetic petroleum-based polymers used today in a wide range of human activities. The technology is based on deep processing of agricultural raw materials, therefore, it allows to obtain polymers, that are completely safe for nature and humans, as well as 100% biodegradable at an affordable price. Biomicrogels® separate any types of oils, fats and greases as well as petroleum products from the surface or in water and gather them in microcapsules. In this form, oils can be easily separated from water or from solid surface, and after separation, these oils can be returned to the technological cycle.
Isle Utilities Limited (Isle, UK) (https://www.isleutilities.com/), an international independent consulting company that has specialized in the assessment of technologies and best innovative practices for more than 30 years, has confirmed the most important properties of Biomicrogel® products and solutions, assigning them the following characteristics: high efficiency, complete biodegradability, compliance with the principles of "green chemistry", cost-effectiveness, as well as innovativeness of products and technologies.
Based on this technology, the Group has created sustainable solutions for industrial wastewater treatment, disposal of used cutting fluids (cooling lubricants) from oils and oil products as well as for oil spill response which cut down energy and gas costs and reduce hydrocarbon emissions to the environment, enabling companies around the world to minimize their carbon footprint and comply with ESG's global policies. The Group also develops environmentally friendly household detergents, cleaning and cosmetic products under the WONDER LAB® brand.
The industrial products based on Biomicrogel® technology are widely used in Southeast Asia and Russian industrial enterprises. These include organic reagents that are safe for nature and humans: coagulants, flocculants, demulsifiers, reagents for plant oils extraction, as well as engineering solutions: reagent dissolving and dosing stations, flotation- and reactor-type plants, filters for separating and compacting sediments, and complex solutions that use reagents to separate all types of oils, fats and petroleum products from water and hard surfaces. They help purify water up to 10 times more efficiently and more economically than similar solutions, while optimizing the process in terms of energy costs and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Among the most demanded areas where Biomicrogel® products and solutions can be used are industrial wastewater treatment, disposal of used metalworking fluids, and vegetable oils extraction (separation from solid oilseed particles in an aqueous medium) during their industrial production. This includes both pure sales of reagents, as well as the development of a complete turnkey solutions for our customers, that covers reagents, equipment, engineering and installation and commissioning services.
Consumer products under the WONDER LAB® brand do not contain aggressive and hazardous ingredients such as phosphates, phosphonates, silicones, parabens, allergens or other hazardous substances. The environmental friendliness of WONDER LAB® products is confirmed by Ecolabel - the European type I Ecolabel mark.
