Cellvation Technology Wins Aquatech Innovation Award

At Aquatech Amsterdam, we had the pleasure of sharing a Stand with our partner from The Netherlands, CirTec, and the show was a great success! 

Our stand was packed with visitors coming to see Cellvation, CirTec’s cellulose recovery technology that won this year’s Innovation Award. They won in the Waste water treatment category AND won the Overall prize ahead of the other 4 category winners.

Sewage Sludge Becomes a Valuable Resource

Cellvation technology uses sewage sludge, which has commonly been thought of as waste (and a problem to dispose of) and has turned it into a valuable resource.

The technology recovers cellulose fibers (toilet paper) from wastewater which is further processed into pellets that can be used in the production of commercial products, such as asphalt, bioplastics and biocomposites.


The Salsnes Filter System’s Critical Role

The Salsnes Filter system plays a critical role in the technology, separating the cellulose fibers from incoming wastewater.
