In 2007, the Dutch company Evodos developed an environmentally friendly, energy-efficient mechanical separation technology. An Evodos does not use chemicals or thermal shock, but spiral plate technology®: a natural way to separate particles that are otherwise too small, too abrasive, too sensitive or too greasy to separate with other technologies. And it separates oil droplets as a separate stream as well. Since the market introduction of this truly new generation of centrifuges, successes are created in the algae industry and oil and gas sector. It is expected that hereafter many more industries will follow.
