The use of Nanoselect membarnes and modules were demonstrated successfully for the removal of dyes and nitrates at industry sites.
DERCOSA and INCUSA, belonging to the same group, and deals woth leather processing. In their process they used different pigments and colors that often remains in water after being treated by a physic-chemical process of water treatments. In addition to that, suspended solids escape from the settler tank designed for precipitate all physic-chemicals flocs formed. The color and suspended solids cause problems in sewerage water systems and in natural water channels.
Nanoselect cartridges has shown good capability to control suspended solids and color and can be a effective solution to prevent this kind of problems in industrial sites.
PROJAR GROUP: Projar manufacture and deliver substrates for agricultural purposes and phytoremediation systems to treat urban waste water. One problem detected with the treated water is the amount of nitrates that remains in water after phytoremediation or conventional urban waste water treatments.
Nanoselect team at Projar facility
Nanoselect cartridges has shown a good in nitrates control and suspended solids retention. Once these cartridges get collapsed with nitrates and/or suspended solids the can be recycled as good fertilizer that Projar would like to commercialise.
