all the benefits
The sludges are a biomass suspension from industrial and civil wastewater treatment processes.
Thanks to its innovative process, B-Plas is a circular alternative to existing solutions, focusing on the recovery of valuable materials and minimizing the volumes of sludge, with significant savings on disposal costs.
Furthermore, a significant fraction of the soluble organic carbon (COD equivalent) is converted into PHA.
Benefits of the solution
until – 70%
Reduced sludge volume to be disposed of
Production of PHA (PHBV copolymer) with proven biodegradability
The B-Plas technology obtains a price-competitive PHA compared to traditional plastics by:
- using wastewaters as raw material;
- using mixed microbial cultures (MMC), which avoid operating in sterile conditions and adapt to any type of organic feedstock;
- enabling PHA extraction with a green solvent.
