Wastewater pilot plant for research
A major wastewater treatment company has commissioned the pilot plant to research the process of optimal digestion of dewatered wastewater sludge. The plant comprises a 20 m³ fermenter with a premixing tank and a simple solid feeding system. The mission of the water solutions company is to give water the value it deserves. Besides the pretreatment and supplying water of a responsible quality, the company also wants to invest in saving water and preserving the world’s most precious resource.
Digesting wastewater sludge gives wastewater a purpose by producing green energy - a great way to give a meaningful benefit to wastewater. This closes the water cycle and is another asset in a long value chain. Essentially, using industrial waste is a viable way to create a circular economy and make a change.
