Project: Design of an intelligent filterpress with electro-osmotic action for an improved and economic dewatering of sludge.

project duration
01-SEP-00 – 31-OCT-01
Investigation of the technical and economic feasibility of the combination of two traditional dewatering techniques for the increase of the dry mass content of the filtercake. The two investigated techniques are filterpress filtration, based on a pressure gradient and electro-osmosis, based on the separation of particles from the liquid phase in an electric field, by use of the natural surface charge of sludge particles.
