Filtration of aqueous effluents by microorganisms
During the various industrial processes, the effluents are treated and then injected back into the process or directly into nature. As regulatory requirements are becoming stricter, it is therefore necessary to improve the filtration of these effluents.
The objective of the BIOFILTRATION project is to develop a new method of effluent treatment. It consists in using the natural capacity of some microorganisms to fix a large variety of inorganic and organic molecules (metals, oxides, radioelements…).
SEGULA Technologies studies the diversity of microorganisms that can purify effluents. The Group determines the microorganism and treatment process best suited to the industrial problem.
This new filtration process is adaptable to high temperatures, high pressures and a high radioactive environment.
