New Treatment for Industrial Waste Water

The PROMETHEUS project has received European Commission funding under the FP7 framework to find a technical solution to treat high organic load, high temperature and high salinity industrial waste waters containing recalcitrant contaminants originating from injection/extrusion and post-washing processes in aluminum and rubber parts production industries.

PROMETHEUS waste water treatment system treats these waste waters obtaining a final effluent meeting discharge requirements plus high purity water and chemicals (demoulding agent used in injection/extrusion processes) recovery for re-use plus a 99% reduction of waste production needing off-site treatment.

There is currently no system in the market allowing for this. This is a competitive opportunity to export a new technology that addresses all these issues.
