ecabiotec® AG offers various products, processes and services in the fields of water treatment and disinfection systems under the brand names ANOSAN®, SOLVID® and anoxil®.

Innovative production plants and powerful bioreactors have been successfully developed over decades to produce products with previously unattained properties using very little salt and deionized water. The solutions produced by the plants have a minimum shelf life of 24 months without requiring any further treatment after production.

The purity of the products and the manufacturing process are unique and are validated and monitored by the FRESENIUS Institute. The capacity of a production plant at the Mörfelden site near Frankfurt am Main is 8.7 million litres per year. Due to the high demand for this type of product, two additional production facilities were acquired and put into operation in the first half of 2020.

Already at the beginning of the corona pandemic, blueplanet Investments AG and its subsidiaries made a public commitment not to increase the prices of its products and not to participate in any price spiral to the detriment of customers. This will also be the case in similar situations in the future.

With new, innovative and efficient systems and active ingredients, ecabiotec® AG thus offers new possibilities for the highest possible level of hygiene. It sets new standards in the treatment of drinking, cooling and process water, the disinfection of objects and surfaces as well as the reduction of germs in food.
