Explore our innovative water solutions


Tap into the potential with our solutions

HYDROHM is established in 2020, as a spin-off company of Ghent University. We build on years of experience in research and development, and bring together the latest innovations in electrochemical engineering.

We believe in the electrification of water treatment as an opportunity to shift towards more local and sustainable water systems, with an increased focus on quality and health. Instead of dosing chemicals to treat water, electrochemical technologies use electricity, which is a renewable and traceless input, that can be generated or connected to anywhere.

  • Driven by electricity. Renewable and economic
  • No added chemicals. Avoid safety risks and residues
  • Local water treatment. Higher water efficiency at your site
  • Enhanced process control. Maximize quality, minimize cost

URIDIS demonstration project: The Place to Pee


On July 6th, the ‘Place to Pee’ was officially opened. The Place to Pee is the first demonstration of the URIDIS technology at full scale. It is placed on the recreational domain ‘De Blaarmeersen’ in Gent (Strandlaan 24, BE9000- Gent), and will be operational from July until the end of September. A public toilet container which accommodates 2 urinals and 3 source separating toilets (Save! toilet from Laufen) is connected to the URIDIS system. The system treats urine locally: it recovers the nutrients and produces disinfecting flush water for the toilets. You can visit the demonstration unit and contribute with your ‘donation’ in the toilet container. We thank our partners Stad Gent, Farys, Laufen and Spraying Systems Co. for their support in this project!

Start of the Electrodis project:
chemical-free membrane technology for water purification and reuse


Hydrohm will work together with Ekopak in the framework of Electrodis, an open-call project by Vlakwa (Vlaams Kenniscentrum Water) and POM West-Vlaanderen. Electrodis aims to replace the use of chemicals for the cleaning and protection of water treatment membranes, by on-site electrochemical upgrading of RO-concentrate, which is currently a waste stream.

More information can be found on the VLAKWA website.
