Clean water for a sustainable future

SurfCleaner is a well-proven, energy efficient system that collects and separates pollutants from water surfaces. Easy to install, run and maintain, SurfCleaner effectively removes a wide variety of contaminants from water, including oil, diesel, petrol, plastic litter, and sludge.

Clean water for a sustainable future

The SurfCleaner is an unparalleled, efficient and proven product that eliminates and separates pollutants from water surface for a vast variety of contaminants, such as oil, diesel, petrol, plastic litter, sludge, microplastics and many more.

We take responsibility.
Join us!

Together, we can ensure that oil, petrol, and diesel are removed faster, before toxic gases are formed, before birds, animals and marine life are affected, before our water becomes unfit.

Cooperation with the oil industry, players in the water and wastewater sectors, coast guard, non-profit organizations and other ocean cleaning initiatives around the world will enable us to help clean up oil spills and littering, thus reducing negative environmental effects in the longer term.

The responsibility for a cleaner planet is something we all share. Let us show you how SurfCleaner can solve your specific problem – and join us in helping the planet.

February 2019
Axwell from Swedish House Mafia invests in SurfCleaner.

“I want to contribute to smart solutions and companies that can have a real impact on the environment, and help creating a more sustainable world. For me, it’s important to give back to the society, and to contribute in the ways I can to help reduce the effects of CO2 emissions and global warming.”

The problem

Environmental problems caused by mankind are rapidly becoming the greatest humanitarian challenge in the world, with pollution already costing more human lives than war and violence combined.

Today, 80% of global wastewater goes untreated, and two million tons of sewage and other effluents enter the world’s oceans and waterways every single day, causing major problems for both humans and wildlife.

The solution

SurfCleaner is a well-proven, energy efficient system that collects and separates pollutants from water surfaces. Easy to install, run and maintain, SurfCleaner effectively removes a wide variety of contaminants from water, including oil, diesel, petrol, plastic litter, and sludge.

How it works:

1. COLLECT

The shape of the SurfCleaner, combined with the negative pressure, pulls the circular floating ring down under the water surface to create a circular inflow zone, making the oil on the surface flow into the SurfCleaner.

2. SEPARATe

The flow will pull the oil down towards the bottom of the SurfCleaner. Utilizing deflection disks the oil is forced out to the periphery of the SurfCleaner. The water continues out through the bottom outlet.

3. Discharge

With the water acting as a piston, the oil will then be transported to an external storage tank. A sensor connected to the control system makes it possible to discharge SurfCleaner automatically.

1

SurfCleaner collects the oil on the surface.

2

Up to 100% separation of oil and water.

3

SurfCleaner has the capacity to collect, separate and discharge up to 8 cubic meters of pure oil per hour.

Features and benefits

Can separate all oil spills – from extremely thin oil sheen (1000Å) to heavy oil layers.

Low energy consumption – can be powered by solar energy.

Separates surface layers with low to high viscosity.

Separating capacity up to 8 cubic meters pure oil per hour.

Separation directly at the surface – minimum transport of liquid

The collected oil spill is 100% free from water.

Cleans oil spill unattended for long periods of time.

Suitable for installation in existing plants.

Minimal mechanical wear – low service costs.

We are SurfCleaner

We are responsible

Our vision is that SurfCleaner is available to everyone, everywhere, so that we can all take responsibility for a sustainable future.

Together, we can ensure that oil, petrol, and diesel are removed faster, before toxic gases are formed, before birds, animals and marine life are affected, before our water becomes unfit.

Our cooperation with the oil industry, water and wastewater companies, coast guard, non-profit organizations and other ocean cleaning initiatives around the world enables us to help clean up oil spills and littering – reducing negative environmental effects in the longer term.

It comes from the heart

We have a strong passion for what we can contribute. A passion that started with our founder Stig Lundbäck (MD), who discovered that the human heart’s pump technology can be used in many mechanical applications.

This technology gives life. Not only to the human body, it can also help save the environment. We know that we make a difference, that we can contribute to a cleaner planet, that there is hope for a more sustainable future. 

We think you will agree, if you just listen to your heart.

It’s smart

The best thing about SurfCleaner’s technology is that it is so smart. We offer simple solutions that make a big difference.

Some smart facts:

  • The pollutants are collected and separated simultaneously from the water
  • SurfCleaner can separate up to 8 cubic meters of pure oil per hour, and the discharge can be handled automatically
  • SurfCleaner is inexpensive to purchase and operate and energy consumption is low, it can be operated with solar cells

  • Highly durable, long lifetime; there are SurfCleaners that have been operating for more than 15 years, with minimal service and maintenance.

The fact is, SurfCleaner is simple, inexpensive, efficient and durable – and that’s really smart!

1986

Beginning​

Medical doctor Stig Lundbäck discovers how the heart performs its pumping and auto-regulating functions – a previously unknown pump technology DAPP (Dynamic Adaptive Piston Pump).

1994

Development

Stig was asked if his pump technology could remove oil from the water surface after a spill accident. This resulted in the first prototype and patents – and the company SurfCleaner was created.

2001

Cleaning oil spill

More than 30 products installed at customer sites. For example: Preem, Circle K, Esso, The Swedish coast guard and many more.

2014

Expansion

Tests performed at Henriksdals waste water plant in Stockholm to collect sludge. The trial lasted two years and resulted in a working prototype, patents and new possibilities for waste water cleaning.

2018

Generation change

Stig’s daughter Christina continues the Lundbäck legacy, taking charge of SurfCleaner together with the new CEO, Mikael Andersson. The company is now focusing on growth, expansion and creating a world-class team.
