En-Reco Treat - Innovative Membrane Distillation for the Recovery of Energy and Recources in Municipal Waste-water Treatment

Project: Research project

Description

Within the project En-RecoTreat, the membrane distillation technology is further developed for the use of waste water treatment. Thereby ammonia is separated and recovered from the municipal waste-water using energy efficient membrane distillation processes. The direct waste-water concentration also aims to replace the exergy-intensive process of aerobic
waste-water treatment by anaerobic high-performance reactors which produce energy in the form of biogas. The integration of the membrane distillation in the waste-water treatment
leads to the development of an optimized control-strategy and an overall energy concept for municipal waste-water treatment plants.
