PFS Demonstration project: SME Instruments (Horizon 2020)

The EU-funded project demonstrating Pharems filtermodules for degradation of organic micropollutants in wastewater treatment plants using enzymatic activity, progresses to scale up stress tests in the pilot facility at Hammarby Sjöstadsverket. The initial tests focus mainly on flow-rates and physical behavior of the module design and filter material, which will be used to finalize the units for coming demonstration at the sites in Sweden, Netherlands and Malaysia.

Together with the project participants, Pharem are aiming to start installing and demonstrating the modules on the selected sites in the first half of next year (2019). Parallel to the installation at the Hammarby Sjöstadsverket, final adaptions are also done to other areas regarding the modules which will be included in the demonstration modules

The enzyme treatment technology is a result from combining many different technology areas. Pharem facilitate and adapt filters using advanced biotechnology, protein immobilization and combine it with module/column design/construction and the development of filter material.
