Project description:

Background

This project aims to prove that textile industry effluents can be treated advantageously using an innovative technique that combines a biological and a membrane process (reactor with membranes). This project proposes an original and efficient demonstration plant to treat textile effluents, coupling a membrane technology to an active sludge biological process. The first phase involves testing the membranes and a bio-reactor in a pilot prototype to be installed in a French company. In the second phase, an industrial prototype will be installed in a factory in Portugal, where there is serious concern for the economic situation of the textile industry and the associated environmental problems. If this project concludes successfully, the market will not only be restricted to textile companies lacking treatment plants, but will be applicable to all existing active sludge facilities in Europe.
