Freylit was founded in 1986 in Austria and became a leader in oil-water separation technology. Franz Frey, the founder of Freylit was pushing sustainable regulation in Austria in 1990, to protect Austrian lakes from oil pollution and keep the freshwater at its world-famous drinking water quality.
As a result, Freylit equipped 95% of all petrol stations in Austria with Freylit Oil-Water separators. Till today, over 90% of all Austrian lakes contain drinking water quality.
Until 2019 over 20.000 Oil-Water Separators of Freylit are in use in refineries, petrol stations, airports, offshore and onshore oil rigs, and oil depots worldwide.
