Peer Kamp, Chief Technology Officer of PWN Technologies, has received royal honour in the Netherlands for his achievements on the water treatment front and for creating innovative water treatment systems, which are applied worldwide. He is appointed as Ridder in de Orde van Oranje Nassau (Knight of the Order of Oranje Nassau).
Peer Kamp developed revolutionary applications of techniques to treat water. He was for instance the first to introduce a two step filtration process (ultrafilration and hyperfiltration), and the first to introduce the process of advanced oxidation (UV hydrogen peroxide treatment).
