How tiny bubbles can change the world

    Ultra-fine bubbles or nanobubbles have been in the center of academic research for over 20 years.


    Since a few years the technology has found its applications in innumerable fields. It has shown remarkable results in agriculture, the food industry, waste management and in the medical field.

    Starting in Japan, we have been following this technology from the start. The opportunities seem endless and we are excited to be part of this.


    Together with our partners in Japan and Europe we develop machines that produce oxygen, CO2, nitrogen and ozone nanobubbles.

  • What are nanobubbles?

    Nanobubbles are extremely small gas bubbles. They have unique physical properties that make them very different from normal bubbles.

    Ordinary bubbles quickly rise to the surface and burst.

    Nanobubbles have a low buoyancy and remain suspended in water until they dissolve.

    Nanobubbles act as a gas reserve in solution. As gas is consumed from the water by biology, chemistry, or off-gassing, the nanobubbles ​rapidly diffuse more gas into the water, maintaining elevated dissolved gas levels until the nanobubbles are depleted.

    Beneficial effects of oxygen nanobubbles are:

    • Improved root health in plants, flowers and trees
    • Reduction of algae and pathogens
    • Reduced biofilm in irrigation systems
    • Increased production of healthier fish

    The Dolphin is a plug & play transportable installation, assembled in a full stainless steel cabin. It has flow rate capacities ranging between 2 and 45 m3/h. This in-house built oxygenation system can dissolve 10 – 80 kg oxygen in water per day.

    The BELUGA-range consists of large nanobubble generating systems, which can also be housed in isolated sea containers. Such a container can be equipped with airconditioning and a climate control system to maintain a constant temperature and air quality to enable a constant oxygen delivery also in hot and cold weather conditions. The BELUGA range has flow rate capacities between 120 and 480 m3/h. These in-house built oxygenation systems can dissolve 200 – 1200 kg oxygen in water per day.
