Turn Wastewater Into Value

TOTAL Mitteldeutschland Refinery presents a case study on wastewater reuse at Aquatech Amsterdam

Berlin, Germany – October 16th 2017 – akvola Technologies GmbH, a water technology company providing solutions for the removal of oils and suspended solids from hard-to-treat industrial wastewater, will exhibit at Aquatech Amsterdam 2017 (Booth 07.549A – October 31st to November 3rd).

„After the success of exhibiting at the BlueTech Innovation Pavilion in 2015, which lead to the collaboration with Total E&P and Acciona Agua among others, we couldn’t miss this year’s event,” said Lucas León, CFO of the company. “We are also thrilled that Susanne Glaser, Senior Process Engineer at TOTAL Mitteldeustchland refinery, will present the results of the refinery wastewater reuse project we are working on at the event.” (Details below)

Matan Beery, CEO of akvola Technologies, added, “Due to the disruptiveness of the akvoFloat™ technology our booth has been placed at the Innovation Avenue by the organizers. It is an honor to be there at the of the world’s leading trade exhibition for industrial process and wastewater”. Mr. Beery also highlighted the importance of the trade show to acquire the talent that akvola Technologies needs in the current high-growth phase.

Total Raffinerie Mitteldeutschland wants to decrease its water consumption in order to further improve their environmental footprint. In order to achieve this, it is necessary to implement a treatment train that can treat the effluent of the wastewater treatment plant for reuse as boiler feed.
As Total could experience first hand, polymeric membrane-based MBRs cannot always cope with the high fouling potential of complex and highly varying refinery wastewater, rendering them technically or economically infeasible. For this reason a 4-month field trial was conducted with akvoFloat™ –a flotation-filtration technology based on novel ceramic membranes– which was designed to treat extremely challenging industrial wastewater. The results showed in this presentation demonstrate that the target water quality could be met reliably and the permeability of the membranes could be fully recovered at all times, making the operation of akvoFloat™ stable and cost-effective.
