Passion My passion is to design industrial water treatment solutions by utilizing the best performing technology for solid/liquid separation process. How did I become me? Over thirty years of experience; More than ten years in the mineral process research projects at Aalto University. During entrepreneurship at Filtermat, the first polishing filter Certus was invented. Almost a twenty-year career at Outokumpu Mintec Corporation (today Outotec) and Larox Corporation (today Outotec) in international sales and global filtration projects. I'm currently Vice President (M.Sc.) of Sofi Filtration in the field of innovative industrial microfiltration. The problems I solve Industrial process water treatment challenges, large streams of water that contain fine particles that are difficult to treat with traditional methods like settling. The industry needs new, efficient solutions to recirculate their process waters. Process know-how and equipment selection to help clients to e.g. save water, energy and costs, to benefit of a robust technology, and to decrease the footprint of filters.
