D4b: Demonstrating water recycling using ultrafiltration

Partner: FiW, A3 in cooperation with NUST

Objective
The goal of ultrafiltration (UF) testing rig is to demonstrate and provide further practical data on the effectiveness of UF treatment of selected wastewater streams from textile finishing plants for reuse in the textile production process.

Present Results
The UF testing rig has been assembled and tested and will be shipped together with the anaerobic pilot treatment plant to Pakistan in early 2018. First operation results are expected in April/May 2018.

Expected Outcome
The demonstration project D4b will show in which cases the reuse of UF filtered wastewater in the textile finishing processes is sensible and justifies the investment in full-scale UF plants.
