FAN Separator: a good contribution to environmental protection.
Paper production is water intensive. Water is needed for manufacturing, for auxiliary and cleaning purposes. The water is cleaned and passes through the production process up to ten times in the optimal case. Per ton of paper, about 10 to 50 cubic meters of wastewater are produced in modern factories, depending on whether they produce recycled paper or fresh pulp and paper. FAN equipment separates a high proportion of solids, including micro plastic (plastic particles with a diameter <5mm) purely electro-mechanically out of wastewater streams, without using chemicals. Extrapolations showing, that the amount of micro plastics, which gets annually into the soil by sewage sludge only, is greater, than the amount that lands in the oceans. The treatment of the wastewater and the environmentally friendly disposal of the sludge, is thus - more relevant than ever - a responsible task, which requires our attention and due care.
