The recovery of resources and energy savings are key to the Cellvation® process. Cellulose, the main constituent of toilet paper, is one of the renewable resources that can be recovered from sewage. Cellvation® is the technology to produce clean, marketable cellulose.
The Cellvation® installation offers, next to the production of a valuable raw material, a significant reduction in energy consumption at the Sewage Treatment Plant (STP). Moreover, because of the recovery of cellulose the amount of excess sludge produced and therefore chemical consumption is minimised, the treatment capacity is increased and the costs are reduced in a sustainable way.
Cellvation® was already awarded the Aquatech Innovation Award 2017. According to the jury: “This is a very good example of resource recovery and is a perfect example of the circular economy in action.”
