UF Cleans Up Biodiesel Wastewater

By October 25, 2018No Comments

We recently demonstrated how our stainless steel ultrafilter could process oil-washing wastewater rich in FOG from a biodiesel plant. The UF removes all suspended solids, FOG, and makes a filtrate that the plant can reuse to wash the next batch of raw oil. Our UF can also be an effective solution before onsite wastewater treatment or sewer discharge since it removes a large fraction of the BOD/COD. The UF concentrate is a high solids slurry (15-20% TS) that can be sold as an animal feed ingredient.
