FLOTAMET™- Anaerobic wastewater treatment
To effectively treat wastewaters rich in fats, oil, grease, and solids, GWE combined several of its highly effective technologies and created the FLOTAMETTM System. It has proven to be one of the most reliable and efficient technologies to treat wastewaters from the dairy, fish, and food processing industries around the world.
The FLOTAMET™ System is a flotation-separation type of anaerobic treatment process, consisting of a mixed anaerobic reactor - GWE’s ANAMIXTM, followed by a sludge separation stage utilizing biogas flotation, in our SUPERFLOT™ - BIOGAS.
Even with highly variable wastewater compositions, the GWE FLOTAMETTM has managed to reach > 96% COD removal - 99% with the aerobic polishing step.
The combination of an Anaerobic Digester - Organic wastes digestion and an external sludge separation unit solves many operational problems that other anaerobic technologies face when treating wastewaters with such high concentrations of pollutants.
