At Ecoparc 2, the INFUSION Technology will demonstrate the viability of the OFMSW liquid digestate treatment. From this effluent, biogas, fertilizers and regenerate water will be obtained.
At Cogersa’s facilities, the landfill leachate as well as the OFMSW líquid digestate will be treated through the INFUSION Technology. From these effluents, biomethane for vehicles, fertilizers and regenerate water will be obtained.
|Thermophilic Anaerobic Membrane Bioreactor (tAnMBR)
|Biological process to transform organic matter into biogas. It applies ultrafiltration (UF) membranes to successfully retain the microorganisms and solids and provide an effluent with high water quality
|Lower organic matter content in wastewater and produce biogas
|Low-cost and reliable technology available to produce biomethane from biogas, based on absorption-adsorption
|Upgrade biogas produced in the tAnMBR
|Extraction of ammonia (NH3) from a wastewater stream to a gas through air stripping. The separated ammonia is later solubilized by a strong acid and recovered as ammonium salt
|Remove ammonia from the effluent from tAnMBR, and recover it as ammonium salts
|Mass transfer of ammonia (NH3) from a wastewater stream to liquid receiving phase, using a hydrophobic membrane that separates both phases.
|Remove ammonia from the effluent from tAnMBR and recover it as ammonium salts.
|Valorisation of end-of-life reverse osmosis (RO) membranes for desalination plants, the fate of which would be a landfill. With regenerated membranes it is possible to produce reclaimed water to be valorised in fertigation of edible crops and aquaculture.
|Produce reclaimed water for agricultural applications.
