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.










Aquatech Amsterdam

Aquatech Amsterdam took place at the RAI Exhibition and Convention Centre from October 31 – November 3, 2017. The event hosted over 21,000 attendees and 900 exhibitors from 139 countries.

SludgeTech 2017

IWA’s Specialist Conference on Sludge Management –  SludgeTech 2017 – was held on July 9–13, 2017 at Imperial College London. It was a great success, with many productive conversations happening in the exhibit area, and a number of very interesting technical papers presented.

Our Ashish Sahu (Product and Technology Applications Manager) presented a technical paper entitled “Enhanced Filtration with Rotating Belt Filter for Higher Methane Potential from Primary Wastewater Sludge”.

Ashish Sahu presenting at IWA's SludgeTech 2017

This scientific study shows that a higher methane potential can be obtained from the sludge of rotating belt filters (RBFs) with the addition of a small dosage of polymer (1.0 mg/L).  The cost of the polymer is minimal for the added value a utility can receive which includes higher bioenergy on cogeneration and a lower level of particulates entering downstream processes.

If you missed SludgeTech and would like a copy of Ashish’s presentation, contact us.
