Transforming waste-water

An example of a water filtration system.

Imagine a water filtration system capable of turning wastewater from a vineyard or dairy farm into drinking standard water. Matamata based Forsi Innovations are doing that – and more. 

Unique ceramic water filtration systems are enabling regional councils, industry, and farmers to achieve unheralded standards of water quality, from dirty and contaminated water sources.

Forsi Innovations was formed in 2005 by Terry Hawes and his sons Craig and Darren to provide a solution to the growing demand to conserve water use.

Operations manager, Craig Hawes, says Forsi water filtration systems are in demand across a variety of industries for their ability to transforming dirty water into clear, clean water which meets New Zealand’s drinking water standards.

“In the viticulture industry, for example, it is not uncommon for wineries to be faced with having to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars each year to dispose of waste-water into town sewer systems.

“Our filtration systems avoid that need and expense, transforming the waste product into clear, clean water which can be used for washing yards, vats etc.

“Similarly on dairy farms, Forsi filtration systems enable farmers to, for example, transform dirty water into clear drinking standard water which can be used for stock, washing yards etc.

“Forsi filtration systems offer a solution that is cost effective and very energy efficient so the need for high kilowatt pumps is no longer needed.

“Our water filter systems are providing a wide range of industries with an ability to conserve water and meet – if not exceed – environmental standards.”
