Water technology solutions
Membrane processes are seen as a main solution for managing increasing water scarcity and enabling water reuse. VTT provides research services and innovative solutions in multiple areas of membrane technology.
The main topics we work on today and for tomorrow:
Research for improved endurance
Membrane material solutions
Process optimisation, modelling and simulation
Management of microbes and micropollutants in water treatment
Utilization of the unique properties of both tailored and ubiquitous microorganisms, enzymes and proteins promotes possibilities for novel water treatment concepts and targeted treatment. Efficient and targeted water treatment processes are developed by combining biotechnology to chemical and physical methods
Detoxifying or removing pollutants
Recovery of nutrients and valuable material
Discovery of new biological activities and utilization of the microbial
Sludge and Concentrates
Treatment of liquid side streams in industry and municipalities have become an important part of sustainable solutions in environmental business. VTT GWW Sludge and Concentrate module delivers research services for customers who want to improve their business in a sustainable way.
Pretreatment and dewatering of waste water sludge and concentrate
Recovery of nutrients and valuable materials from liquid waste
Biogas production from liquid biowaste
