Aquateam COWI is RTD partner in EU program

Aquateam COWI is RTD partner in a project of the EU's 7th Framework Programme entitled  (O-WaR) - An intergrated Membrane Process for Oily Wastewater Treatment, Water Reuse and Valuable By-Products Recovery 

A large amount of wastewater in the form of oil-in-water is generated in different industries such as olive mills, metal processing and offshore oil and gas. The O-WaR project aims to develop an integreated proces sable to efficiently remove emulsified oil from wastewater, to reuse treated water, to recover by-products in wastewater and to reduce volumes of oily waste for disposal. The solution consists of a SiC membrane coated with an anti-fouling layer, an induced Gas Flotation (IGF) unit for membrane concentrate treatment and a NF/RO unit for purification of SiC permeate and/or valuale by products recovery from wastewater. The O-WaR technology will be able to remove >99% of oil, solids and chemical oxygen demand, making treated oily wastewaters to easily meet discharge or reuse requirements and produce < 2% oily waste for off-site disposal, greatly reducing waste disposal cost.
