Project: Waste water treatment with silicon carbide membranes.

R & D project in cooperation between _x000D_ _x000D_CoMeTas A/S, Copenhagen Membrane Technology, in Danmark. Cometas A/S develops and manufactures membranes for waste water treatment._x000D_ _x000D_and_x000D_ _x000D_EPC, Recycling & Coating Technologies in Israel. EPC is an Israeli enterprise, which has R & D projects underway in the U.S., where Cometas products may contribute. _x000D_ _x000D_From Cometas A/S Mr. Thomas Eilkær Hansen, Denmark has been appointed as project manager._x000D_ _x000D_From EPC , Lior Ditur has been appointed project manager. The project will also be managed by the EPC's owners, Mrs. Roni and Mr. Jeremy Weissman. _x000D__x000D_In addition, Professor Adin from Hebrew University in Jerusalem is involved in the project together with his academic staff, in close cooperation with EPC. They will contribute with scientific reports throughout the project. Professor Adin is a specialist and the top expert in water and water treatment in Israel. Israel is today a world leader in reuse of wastewater. _x000D__x000D_The scope of the project is to integrate two products into one unit during a 2 year period. The project is focused on development of a hybrid biological / ultra filtration wastewater treatment facility. EPC has developed a bio-treatment technology as an on-site solution to treat waste water, which is much more efficient than any existing solution. The solution is 3-stage with The mechanical stage, The Biological stage and The Clarification stage as the stages. When introducing the CoMeTas' state-of-the art ultra filtration silicon carbide membranes into this solution, it will be possible to achieve extremely high effluent quality. The ultra filtration membranes from CoMeTas will enhance the efficiency of the EPC technology, and the EPC technology will help the ceramic membranes to run stable._x000D__x000D_The project's immediate R & D is aimed for achieving a better quality of discharge treated sewage to prevent the subsoil from becoming contaminated (a problem which also seems high in Denmark). It will initially be through the installation of three systems at three different locations in Israel, each with their specific conditions. The tests will be supervised by Professor Adin and screened at the Israel Laboratory Accreditation Authority "Bachtochem" in Ness Ziona and the Hebrew University, Jerusalem, Israel. There are several R & D aspects of the project, which Professor Adin wants to explain in writing in the application. _x000D__x000D_The project is addressing the wastewater treatment market. The project is aimed at municipal and commercial sectors in the EU, US and Israel.

Acronym WaTSiC (Reference Number: 6026)
Duration 01/01/2011 - 31/12/2012
Project Topic The goal of the cooperation between CoMeTas A/S in Denmark and EPC in Israel is to develop an innovative waste water facility, based on the combination of EPC's knowledge on biological waste water treatment and CoMeTas A/S knowledge on ceramic membranes focusing on micro-and ultra filtration.
