Purification of wastewater by mimicking nature

Alnarp Cleanwater has developed a biological system that purifies wastewater. The ACT Natural™ system aims to imitate nature’s own way of purifying human sewage and requires no chemical additives. Instead, it is a natural system that does not impact the environment.

Ozone-AOP (Xyleminc)

AQUAFIT4USE is a large-scale project funded under the 7th Framework Programme
(FP7), a grant funding programme of the European Commission which aims to make industries more independent of the supply of water for their production processes. The initiative aims to develop new technologies, tools and methods as well as to apply new combinations of existing technologies for sustainable water supply, use and discharge in the main water consuming industries: in other words “water fit-for-(re)use”. These new techniques encompass innovative technologies or applied technologies dealing with water looping in the four following industries: paper, food, chemistry and textile.

INNOWATECH

Biological processes offer the cheapest way to treat industrial wastewater in order to obtain a sustainable water cycle achievement. However, complex industrial wastewater can contain pollutants that are not easily broken down, increasing the cost of the treatment process.

VIT-KIT

VIT kit stands for Vermicon Identification Technology kit. It consists of in situ bio sensing probes which look for specific bacteria. These kits can easily be deployed on site for water cycle monitoring. They are provided by vermicon (Germany).

DENUTRITOR

DENUTRITOR is a bio filtrating device which reduces biofouling in water systems by removing compounds that cause the growth of microbial populations. This biofilter has been developed within the AQUAFIT4USE  large-scale project. This pan-European initiative, funded under the 7th Framework Programme (FP7), a grant funding programme, aims to make industries more independent of the supply of water for their production processes. New technologies, tools and methods for sustainable water supply, use and discharge in the main water consuming industries, i.e. “water fit-for-(re)use”, have been developed.
