Villeroy & Boch - Recycling Of Glazes
Villeroy & Boch, the world famous producer of ceramic and lifestyle products in Mettlach, Germany, has been looking for an innovative technology to regenerate rinsing concentrates resulting from glaze processing. An optimal process to recycle glazes was developed within the framework of a joint research project with EnviroChemie. Extensive examinations in a test laboratory and a pilot installation supplied the necessary technical data for the design of the Envopur microfiltration plant.
The new Envopur microfiltration plant conserves valuable resources by filtering the process water in such a manner that it no longer has to be treated as waste water.
Water type: Rinsing concentrate from glaze processing
Process: Envopur microfiltration
Plant capacity: 20 m³/d
