ACKER textile works - Rinsing water treatment and wastewater treatment in textile manufacturing - Case Study
The Acker textile works in Seligenstadt near Frankfurt manufacture technical textiles, which are used in the automotive and construction industry. The production generates wastewater that is highly contaminated with organic substances. An Envochem® physico-chemical wastewater treatment plant has been in use since 2000, which treats the wastewater in a multi-step process. The wastewater is first rendered alkaline and then treated in mixing reactors with Envifloc® adsorption agents and flocculants. After sedimentation and filtration, the wastewater can be discharged into the sewage system in compliance with legal requirements, or partially reused. The resulting sludge is pre-dewatered with a chamber filter press and then dewatered with a sludge dryer to 75% dry matter.
