Sanitation of the future: From treatment to recycling

KWI France had the opportunity to express itself in the May 2018 edition of the magazine EIN (Water, Industry, Nuisances)
Mr. RICHARD, General Manager of KWI presents an alternative solution for the recycling of treated water: the 100% membrane!

An alternative vision:the 100% membrane?
Processes focused on activated sludge will certainly remain the majority but variants are developing. For two years now, the KWI group has been offering an innovative, robust and well-adapted solution for biological treatment with MBR: flat ceramic membranes (CFM System®). These ceramic ultrafiltration systems are increasingly used in urban wastewater treatment. In fact, their 0.2 μm cut-off capacity makes it possible to obtain a quality of treated water which is clearly superior to that obtained with conventional clarifiers and guarantees a total absence of MES at rejection, thus permitting reuse of treated water in some cases.

For Denis Richard, General Manager of KWI France, « these new ceramics flat membranes, patented by our sister company, ideally combine the robustness of sand filters and the quality of polymer membranes by offering a high resistance to chemicals, pressure and temperature changes “. Among the advantages of these membranes, an exceptional lifetime (20 years), robustness and flexibility in the face of process variations (temperature, pressure, chemical reagents), reduced consumption of reagents, and low costs operating. »
