Crossflow Membrane Technology (CMT), renowned for its success in the removal of bacteria, pesticides, suspended solids and colour from wastewater, is now a practical solution in the fight against the microplastic pollution found in most wastewater streams. CMT works as a physical barrier against microplastics where the particulates cannot pass through the membrane on the basis of particle size, allowing only crystal clear commercially sterile, particle free water to be discharged. All the microplastic particulates and other separated impurities are safely retained in a low volume controllable form ready for further treatment.
Axium Process specialises in Crossflow Membrane Technology and is working with companies wishing to evaluate the benefits of membrane filtration as a treatment for wastewater and removal of microplastics. Our expertise is in the design, build and commissioning of customised membrane filtration plants that can provide cost effective solutions in terms of reduced water and energy costs, recovery of chemicals, reduced effluent volumes and disposal costs.
We also maintain a comprehensive range of mobile membrane filtration pilot plants and in-house laboratory services which are offered as a research facility for companies wishing to develop and optimise their processes.
