Pilot plant for the anaerobic treatment of starch-rich waste water from the Pakistani textile industry

In cooperation with the Pakistani textile manufacturer Kohinoor Mills Ltd. and the National University of Science and Technology (NUST) Islamabad, the Research Institute for Water and Waste Management at RWTH Aachen (FiW) commissioned an anaerobic treatment plant in Lahore in June 2018.

Over the course of the next several months, the pilot plants will help to evaluate the effectiveness of anaerobically treating starch-rich waste water from the desizing process, with view to both the treatment performance as well as the biogas yield.
