Case Studies

A Polish company specialized in potato starch processing is able to save 2.4 million Euros by using a membrane filtration system

A Polish company manufacturing potato based products needed help with its process wastewater stream. To resolve discharge problems they requested to concentrate and remove as much protein and potassium resulting from the centrifuge decanting line. Fortunately, thanks to a tubular reverse osmosis membrane system supplied by PCI Membranes, it has been demonstrated that it is possible to use a single treatment process to minimize protein residues in the permeate stream and eliminated the need to build a new biological wastewater plant or purchase expensive evaporators.

Ultra-compact Wastewater Plant

As with many Highland burn sources, the raw water at Achnasheen is both variable in quality and quantity, leading to peaks of colour and turbidity, particularly when the burn is in spate.

World’s Largest Tubular Membrane Effluent Treatment Plant

The average COD of this effluent is approximately 10gm/litre, therefore a total of about 3 tonnes of COD is produced every hour. Due to stricter legislation, and the need to be “green”, it became necessary for Stora Nymölla to obtain the “Swan” mark for their products.
