EmiStop – Microplastics in industrial wastewater

Envirochemie is coordinating the EmiStop joint research project, which sees industrial wastewater examined for microplastics for the first time. The aim is to systematically classify individual wastewater treatment technologies in terms of their ability to retain microplastics. With this in mind, Envirochemie is carrying out relevant classification tests and identifying potential for optimisation in terms of both design and process technology. It is also developing and implementing optimised system technology on this basis, along with flocculants designed to improve the microplastic retention capabilities of existing and future wastewater treatment technologies.
