In the field of waste water treatment atech membranes are used, for example, for the filtration of cleaning chemicals (surface treatment), for cell separation after biological processes, or for the recycling of paints and lacquers
GEA Filtration is experienced in processing a wide range of products on a commercial basis and by testing products at the plant site or in our pilot plant testing facility. Definition of the Industrial Biotech and Environmental Biotech Sector. This sector uses living organisms to manufacture a variety of products that result in the reduction of pollution, resource consumption and waste. Typical products include bioethanol, industrial enzymes, biological fuel cells, enzymes for bioremediation, biodegradable...
Before the innovation of membrane processing was introduced to the dairy industry, in the late 1960`s, whey was truly a waste product of cheese making. Three important events have driven whey towards further processing; increased cost of dumping whey into the environment; new technologies to separate the proteins in whey and scientific research that has uncovered the wide range of nutritional and biological properties of whey that have ultimately added value to a once wasted product.
AQQA is used in industrial wastewater treatment to: separate the sludge from the clear water in membrane bio reactors. constitute the final filtration of the effluent of standard sewage treatment plants (tertiary treatment). keep specialized bacteria in the system, that can biologically degrade organic matter. enable Zero Liquid Discharge: prefiltration for reverse osmosis systems.
In waste water treatment systems our membranes are used with great success for the filtration of cleaning chemicals (surface treatment), for cell separation after biological processes, or for the recycling of paints and lacquers.
