Innovative Filter Modules for the Separation of Microplastic from Waste Water
Microplastics are discharged into our wastewater and the environment every day. Thus far wastewater treatment plants are not able to sufficiently reduce microplastics. Therefore our focus is on the development of a filter that is ready for serial production, which enables the filtration of particles down to 0.01mm (this equals the thickness of household aluminium foil) based on the patented cyclone filter. Due to its special technology, this filter is clogging and maintenance-free and not a disposable filter. Once the prototype has been built, it will be tested in a treatment plant using real wastewater.
The research project -Sim Con Drill- was nominated for the Green Award 2020
