Webinar on Advanced filtration technologies for recovery and later conversion of relevant fractions from wastewater. Register here: https://afterlife-project.eu/webinar/
Food processing plants generate large amount of mostly biodegradable liquid and solid waste which require separation. Large amount of wastewater is produced in these facilities due to the intensive use of water in food and beverage processing. These residual streams are usually treated in-situ and/or discharged to the grid for their treatment in a municipal wastewater treatment plant. However, they have an important potential for the conversion of the present biodegradable compounds and the valorisation as bio-based products. In AFTERLIFE project, researchers are optimizing membrane filtration systems that will separate different components in the wastewater. The recovered concentrates will be treated to obtain high-pure extracts and metabolites and are converted into value- added biopolymers through innovative extraction and purification techniques. This webinar will focus on various extraction and concentration techniques that will lead to the valorization of wastewater. You will also hear some of these techniques that currently used by the Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant and Celabor.
