We are very proud to announce that the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) announced Dryden Aqua as the winner of their Environmental Technology Verfification (ETV) competition. This award was launched by Scotland's Energy Minister.
”AFM® has the potential to be a disruptive technology. Our filter media will more than double the performance of any drinking water system simply by replacing the sand in the filter. AFM® also has the benefit that it is a lower cost and a more sustainable process than any other form of water treatment. Once AFM® is in a filter, it should never need to be changed. [...] Verification of AFM® via EMEC’s ETV programme will allow us to enter the drinking water market more effectively, and much quicker, so we can bring clean and safer water to more people. In the developing world this means we could eliminate up to 80% of all disease and save lives.” - CEO Dryden Aqua, Dr. Howard Dryden
We want to thank EMEC for their confidence in us and their supporting of innovative Environmental Technologies.

Guests from all over the world
A number of customers and business partners from around the world have recently visited our state-of-the-art AFM® production facility in Edinburgh, Scotland. They can watch the AFM® production and activation process first hand, from the moment the raw glass is brought in all the way to the bagging and loading for transportation. Here a few impressions from a group from Vietnam:
Dryden Aqua honoured at the "Golden Wave" Awards in 2015
Real innovations enrich the market sustainably. For this reason the magazine "Swimming Pool + Sauna" (www.schwimmbad.de), Europe’s largest Pool & Spa magazine with more than 40 years of tradition, awards every two years pioneering developments in pool and spa technology with the "Golden Wave".
The main focus of this award is the practical benefit of the excellent products - ensured by the jury of renowned and experienced professional pool contractors. Nearly 100 products were in the contest this year.
In seven of the eight categories, the magazine awarded a "Golden Wave“ as well as two awards. An award in the category "Water Care & Chemicals" went this year to Dryden Aqua for "ACO".
ACO is a highly innovative, ecofriendly product that disinfects water by amplifying the natural disinfection power
of the sun. ACO also protects chlorine from sunlight and UV. ACO is especially effective in outdoor pools.
ACO has 3 main features:
- Oxidation catalyst: ACO is a catalyst that amplifies the natural disinfection power of the sun. ACO can be combined with any conventional oxidizing agent (chlorine, bromine, peroxide). Sun in combination with ACO will make your water sparkling clear.
- Chlorine stabilizer: ACO protects chlorine and bromine from photo oxidation. The half-time of chlorine increases by a factor of 4 – 5 and the chlorine demand will be reduced by 30 %. By using ACO as a chlorine stabilizer the effectiveness of chlorine will not be decreased like with cyanuric acid. With ACO the opposite happens: oxidation improves because free radicals are formed in this process.
- Peroxide booster: ACO supports the disinfection power of hydrogen peroxide and thereby ensures crystal clear water.
Excellent results for AFM® in comparison with quartz sand and other glass filter media
The Dryden Aqua Team is proud to share with you the excellent outcome of the tests on AFM® in comparison with quartz sand and other glass filter media that were conducted by the “Institut de la Filtration et des Techniques Séparatives” IFTS in France.
