About Us

CeramHyd is a material science company that develops innovative environmental products based on its proprietary membrane technology, the CERAPEMTM.

The CERAPEMTM is a disruptive membrane made of ceramic particles with outstanding features: it is flat, flexible, it looks and feels like polymeric (plastic) membranes. It is resistant to hard water, compatible with any kind of pH, highly conductive and is exceptionally durable.

The star application of our CERAPEMTM technology is a radically new product called the MiniCell. The MiniCell is a pocket-sized disinfection generation device that can be easily integrated into any equipment requiring in-situ disinfection, as well as cleaning when required.

It enables efficient on demand production of one or two valuable products by electrolysing ordinary salt brine: a strong oxidant and disinfectant and a pH adjusting or cleaning agent.

Our solution suits all size of in-situ cleaning and disinfection equipment, and satisfies all needs: from very small to larger sizes.

We focus on developing and supplying our electrochemical cells based on our CERAPEM™ membrane technology to OEMs for their in-situ disinfection and cleaning needs.
