In an era where sustainability is paramount, Jacobi Group emerges as a leading force, seamlessly integrating technology and environmental responsibility to address industry needs. With a focus on bridging technologies, Jacobi is charting a course towards sustainable solutions that not only meet application requirements but also minimise environmental impact.  

Two strong examples for Jacobi’s innovative bridging technology approach for our markets in and close to Europe include: 


Sustainable Ion Exchange Resins

The transition from traditional acrylonitrile-based weak acid cation (WAC) resin produced in Asia to methyl acrylate-based WAC 100% made in Europe, with a long-term vision of shifting to ion exchange systems derived from solely sustainable raw materials, eliminating fossil fuel-based chemistry. These two steps not only enhance overall operational efficiency, but also reduce environmental footprint, aligning with Jacobi’s commitment to sustainability.



Municipal Water Treatment

In municipal water applications, where our powder activated carbons (PAC) from the MP series are used to remove critical contaminants, such as toxic pesticides or carcinogenic endocrine disruptors, we are pioneering the adoption of coconut-based PAC blends with peat-based alternatives made in Europe, moving away from traditional lignite or coal sources. Using peat taken from dedicated peat deposits in Finland exhibits a substantially lower Global Warming Potential (GWP) than the use of bituminous or lignite-based coal from mining operations. In the long run, Jacobi aims to achieve a future where PAC is sourced entirely from renewable materials.


Erik Lauer, EMEA President, emphasises the company’s ethos: “At Jacobi, we’re committed to innovation with a conscience,” he said. “Leading such an organisation that prioritises sustainability is both fulfilling and essential.










Insights from technology experts like Jan Reinier Gosker, Business Development Director for EMEA, shed light on Jacobi’s approach: “Working with Jacobi means contributing to a greener future” Jan remarks.

“Each technological advancement brings us closer to our goal of providing sustainable solutions for today’s needs while preserving the environment for future generations.”







In a world where environmental concerns are paramount, Jacobi Group’s commitment to sustainable innovation sets a precedent. With our focus on bridging technologies and leveraging advancements for environmental stewardship, we are not just shaping the industry but also paving the way for a more sustainable future.

We are acutely aware of the importance of developing new ways to operate to mitigate our environmental impact and of the urgency required when making such changes. Our dedicated Research and Development teams, alongside expert Application Engineers, work behind the scenes to improve on our current processes and develop new ones that will help us to protect the Earth and its resources whilst also delivering efficient solutions for our customers. Sustainability is currently our priority, so much so that we have set ourselves the goal to become the most sustainable supplier in the industry and these teams explore every avenue to ensure that we achieve this.
