Wastewater Treatment Gel
Using PVA-gel beads, Kuraray’s proprietary high-rate wastewater treatment process allows for efficient operation in a compact system. Unlike conventional activated sludge, this unique system yields almost no excess organic sludge, resulting in reduced operational costs.
These polysulfone or polyvinylidene fluoride-based membranes are capable of filtering microparticles 0.003 - 3 microns in size from liquids. They have a broad spectrum of applications in water purification, wastewater treatment, the production of ultrapure water, and other areas. In recent years, the contamination of water supplies with cryptosporidium has become an issue, but this problem can be eliminated using Kuraray's large-pore membrane. The use of large-pore membrane also reduces operating costs, as no pressurization pump is needed. For these reasons, we expect this material to become more widely used.
