Operators of sewage treatment plants can discover the advantages of installing a full scale EloVac-P® demonstration unit at their WwTP - better dewatering of sewage sludge with less methane emissions.
Give it a try: Vacuum degassing of sewage sludge with an on-site demonstration unit
Higher investment costs are often one of the main reasons, why new technologies are not yet introduced on many WwTP’s. To show positive effects like the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions or improved dewatering of digested sludge at WwTP’s under real conditions, we offer a compact EloVac®-P demo unit for wastewater treatment plants. WwTP operators in Europe already confirm positive results when it comes to the reduction of CO2 emissions whilst operating EloVac®-P.
Compact and easy integration on existing WwTP’s
With its compact design the demo plant fits perfectly into a 40-foot container. The mobile design can be transported on a truck and therefore, will be delivered directly to a WwTP. Due to its plug & play concept the demo plant can easily be set up and installed on-site. It takes only a few days from its delivery to commissioning. On-site integration takes place during operational running, usually without causing any restrictions. In addition to the demo plant, we offer services including: commissioning, training of staff, continuous support and the optimisation of the on-site test operation.
Improved dewatering of sewage sludge and less greenhouse gas emissions
The holistic approach of the demo plant creates perfect conditions for good results regarding the extracted amount of methane gas emissions and improved dewatering of sewage sludge. Having the demonstration plant running at different WwTP’s in Germany since autumn 2020 - test results show great indicative results. With EloVac®-P the dewatering of sludge was improved up to approximately 3% and more than 0.4 m³ of gas per m³ of digested sludge were extracted.
Benefits for small and mid-size WwTP’s up to 300 000 PE.
The demo plants’ capacity is adjustable to the amount of digested sludge of the WwTP up to 20 m³/h maximum, hence available for mid-size WwTP’s. Besides positive impacts on dewatering and the quality and quantity of extracted gas, effects on struvite scaling and efforts for its operation can be shown under real conditions. A regular trial period will be between six to eight weeks.
Only two last trial periods are available for 2021.
