Ceramic flotation-filtration package on show in Las Vegas

Integrated ceramic flotation-filtration technology is being introduced by German startup company akvolution GmbH at the AWWA/AMTA Membrane Technology Conference & Exhibition in Las Vegas next week.

The company says that its advanced ceramic materials enable a cost-competitive compact system to operate under harsh conditions, delivering constant high-quality filtrate while drastically reducing energy demand – saving 90% of energy costs – and environmental impact.

akvolution is targeting its akvoFloat™ technology at pilot projects in oil & gas, semiconductor, food & beverage, pulp & paper and mining industries. It is also looking at seawater desalination pretreatment.

The company, which is a startup from the Technical University of Berlin, is offering both skid-mounted and containerized package plants ranging from 200 to 800 m³/d.

The utilization of advanced ceramic materials used for both bubble generation as well as filtration substantially reduces equipment needs, saving up to 90% of energy consumption, up to 70% of carbon footprint and up to 20% of area footprint.

A paper on the technology will be presented on 11 March at the Las Vegas conference, which runs during 10‑13 March 2014.
