REMEB shows its recycled ceramic membranes at the EUROMEMBRANE 2018 international congress

REMEB played a leading role during the Euromembrane 2018 Interntional Congress, which took place from 9th to 13 July 2018 in Valencia. A meeting that brought together scientists, academics and industry representatives from different countries to discuss the latest innovations in membrane technology and share experiences in this field.
During the event, Elena Zuriaga, R&D technician at FACSA, presented the advances of the REMEB project and the advantages of the use of bioreactors (MBR) of sustainable ceramic membranes elaborated from agro-industrial processes in wastewater treatment plants. A European initiative that started in 2015 from the hand of 11 partners from seven countries that has allowed to develop this MBR, which is currently in its validation phase in the Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) of Aledo (Murcia).

It is one of the most advanced systems on the market for wastewater treatment. In addition to presuming cost savings, favours the reuse of treated water in agriculture.

In this sense, on behalf of another of the partners of this project, Enrique Sánchez, Full Professor of Chemical Engineering of the Universitat Jaume I of Castellón and researcher of the Institute of Ceramic Technology (ITC-UJI) talked about the manufacture of low-cost ecological ceramic membranes produced from residues, such as olive bones, and their optimization through the development of different selective layers that improve the quality of the effluent obtained.

Furthermore, FACSA and REMEB, as sponsors of the Euromembrane 2018 Congress, had a physical space where to provide information to attendees. The REMEB project raised great interest and had multiple visits.
The Eco-friendly Ceramic Mebranes Bioreactor (MBR) based on recycled agircultural and industrial wastes for wastewater reuse initiative will end next August 2018.
