Meet the team

Willem van Baak

Owner, CEO


In my R&D projects for water purification, we experienced the limitations of most technologies. The developed purification system offers a solution for greenhouse waste  and irrigation water treatment.

From  an intrapeneur in a large company to an entrepreneur in a startup is a small step. Water Future likes to contribute to solve your water problems.

Emad Khatibzadeh

Co-owner, CTO


With my mechanical engineering background,  I have researched and developed the soft and hardware of the water purification system. Since 2014 we are continuously improving the system in close collaboration with our research partners.

Looking forward to your water needs and to invent new solutions.
