The Institute of Ecological Technology

The Institute of Ecological Technology is a distributed self-organizing research institute, with a focus on non-conventional ideas and solutions within ecological technology. Our focus is on practical applications and on becoming aware of our interconnectedness with nature. It was formed in the late 70s, inspired a lot by some ideas by the Austrian Viktor Schauberger and has undergone a series of metamorphoses, but can be seen as a focus point for groups interested in non-conventional ecological ideas and solutions.

personal map, for future schauberger travels.

Wanted to make a map of places to visit, in order to better realize how far away these places and people are. Being from Finland, the obvious closest would be going to Göteborg, Sweden.

Alternative water treatment - Effects, mechanisms and perspectives on water quality

Lasse Johansson
Institute of Ecological Technology
Forskningsrapporter - 2 (in Swedish), 2005

English Summary

This report surveys alternative water treatment, and different kinds of alternative water treatment devices, e.g. vortexers, indirect water treatment and magnetic water treatment. Reported physical, chemical, biological and more general ecological effects on treated drinking water and on plants watered with treated water is discussed extensively.

This includes effects on water appearance, turbidity, dissolved gases, washing effect, concrete strength, lime scale and effect on crystallisation processes in general, effects on absorption and on some redox related ions. There are extensive reports on effects on growth, resistance and durability of vegetables and fruit (and flowers) from commercial farmers. Other reported effects include decrease of bacterial count and algae and decreased chlorine dosage needs. There are also some more ecological effects, such as en effect on ponds, liquid manure and compost.

IET-Community: Self-organizing flow technique - introduction to booklet

by IET

This report is an attempt to understand and learn from the ideas and inventions of the Austrian forester Viktor Schauberger. Viktor Schauberger already in the 1920s warned about environmental crisis, at a time at which it was not, as today, something recognized. During his lifetime, he encountered resistance and ridicule, and his perspective may still today be labelled as unconventional and unorthodox, although much of what he wrote about our handling of waters and forests today is more relevant than ever. As he wasn't an academic, but was more of a natural philosopher, he had trouble to communicate his ideas with contemporary scientists. In this report, we'll try to show how modern research in chaos and self-organizing systems give us a possibility to shed some new light on Vikor Schauberger, and perhaps establish a deeper understanding of the phenomena he described.

Hi Stewart!

OK, I will TRY to answer your questions below! Now, I some cases we simply do not have the correct information. Then we must use our technical skill and imagination. An other thing we must do is to learn to think how Viktor Schauberger think. First read the litterature, doing this try to remember the most basic things about Implosion. Then maybe the most important: DO SOMETHING PRACTICAL!! Just start to play with water make spirals, or look into the nature in water falls etc. But DO something practical!!!

Vortex Water Systems

Vortex Water Systems

This is not new technology. It has been around for centuries. The Greeks first used it around 2000BC.

This is not a water softener. Nor is it Magic. This is: State-of-the-art Water Treatment for Rural or City applications.

Used for Many Applications - Residential, Agricultural, Commercial, and Industrial.


* A better tasting water.
* No more ugly stains on shower    walls and toilets.
* White clothes can be white again.
* Less soap and detergent required in    the laundry and dishwasher.
* Hard water spots and deposits    easier to clean - less chemicals    required to remove.
* Will not harm septic systems



Research and development of vortex water systems for rural private wells has been conducted in the field since 1998. Lab experiments and research are conducted in Malmo, Sweden by a team of researchers. Hundreds of systems are in operation in the United States, ranging in application from private wells to apartment buildings and mobile home parks. The systems are designed to require little to no scheduled maintenance. The nature of the problem water defines system design, which can be modified to achieve desired results. Field experience and lab experiments have provided positive results in the eradication of E.coli, algae, fungus, molds, anaerobic bacteria, coliform, cryptosporidium, and legionella. The vortex process places bacteria and viruses under high pressure (hydrocyclones) followed by a vacuum, which causes them to disintegrate.
One such is Dan Reese, who developed Vortex Water Systems in Texas, inspired by reading Alexandersson's Living Water. They are designed to solve the increasing problem of pollution of wells in the American South, by unwanted salts and minerals, and to restructure the water so that it feels smooth, uses less soap and tastes pure. The Vortex system has no moving parts or filters, does not use chemicals and is driven only by the force of the well pump. It was found that the system could be expanded to service as many as 76 homes from one well. A system is now being tested for removing mineral salts from a salt intrusion well, and a larger farm system to help with the problem of cotton rot and to use less water to grow the same amount of crops. These will be major breakthroughs for the industry.

The last two years I have been working with water purifyers utilising V. S. theories. Mostly it is Dan Reeses Vortex System I have tested and been trying to develop further. This has also lead to other vortex treaters for water.

Hi Curt

Interesting to hear what you have accomplished. Now I have an interest in the repulsine because, it can be adapted for water purification, air land and water transportation, cooling air, free electricity, and a host of others limited only by imagination.
