Epuramat S.A. (epuramat.com) was founded in 2005 at the Luxembourg-based business incubator Technoport. The company provides technologically advanced water treatment facilities and systems. The Epuramat technology, which is based on the Solid/Liquid separator "ExSep” (Extreme Separator) for which a patent has been filed, enables the efficient treatment of wastewater, resulting in relatively simpler, smaller and - with regard to investment and operating costs – more cost-effective wastewater facilities.
