Centrifugal algae harvesting machine manufacturer, Evodos B.V., has struck a partnership with German-based SKion and eCAPITAL, giving Evodos a launching platform to market its products on a global scale.

SKion and eCAPITAL will provide a “substantial” amount of growth capital to Evodos, according to the company. SKion GmbH is the investment company of German entrepreneur Susanne Klatten (BMW, ALTANA, SGL Carbon, Paques). eCAPITAL is a leading German venture capital company and is participating with its Cleantech fund. Dr. Michael Lübbehusen from eCAPITAL will join the Supervisory Board of Evodos.

Evodos has developed an innovative centrifuge technology. Evodos centrifuges remove fine particles from liquids at a high separation efficiency and with low energy consumption. The technology also allows highly flexible liquid-liquid separation, e.g. to remove oil from water.

Said Marco Brocken, CEO of Evodos B.V., “The empowerment of Evodos through SKion and eCAPITAL will bring major benefits to our customers. We will accelerate the development and rollout of our products, and our customers will experience the associated advantages. Moreover, by accessing the business network of our new partners, Evodos is able to enter new markets more quickly. Our focus on the growing algae industry will remain strong. Also, we will expand our footprint in other industries.“

Dr. Reinhard Hübner, investment manager SKion GmbH, said, “We believe the Evodos technology can be applied to many other areas where valuable products can be recovered from liquids or impurities removed. The investment in Evodos underlines our aim: SKion invests in cutting-edge technologies dedicated to the challenges of Tomorrow. Water technology is one of the business areas that meet our criteria.”

”Because of it’s unique technology Evodos will bring synergies to our growing portfolio. We also have been impressed by the strongly committed management team, its broad skills and clean business focus,” added Dr. Michael Lübbehusen, managing partner of eCAPITAL

Evodos positions its high-tech equipment in high sustainability markets. Currently Evodos serves the markets of dewatering algae and cleaning cold rolling oils.
