Economical and Reliable Treatment for High-Strength Dairy Wastewater
High-strength dairy wastewater can be very hard to treat, especially using spiral-wound membranes. Dairy processing facilities are looking for economical, reliable, and environmentally sustainable technologies.
ZwitterCo provides a novel technology for removing FOG (fats, oils, and grease) from high-strength dairy wastewater. ZwitterCo’s spiral membranes have an unprecedented ability to capture and remove FOG without irreversible organic fouling, eliminating the need for biological or chemical-based processes to achieve wastewater objectives.
Benefits of ZwitterCo’s Superfiltration (SF) Membranes
Avoid surcharges and site violations
ZwitterCo membranes can meet discharge limits based on suspended solids or FOG limits
Reduce expensive chemistry
Eliminate coagulant or polymer loading from dissolved air flotation treatment
Reduce costly wastewater hauling
Integrating superfiltration and reverse osmosis can reduce hauling volumes by 50% or more
Expand capacity with small footprint
Membrane processes are some of the most space-saving and footprint-flexible unit operations
Achieve sustainability goals
Generate reuse-quality water & reduce freshwater consumption
ZwitterCo’s Unique Technology
A membrane-based solution can help meet discharge goals or unlock onsite water reuse, while reducing the volume of waste disposed of offsite.
ZwitterCo’s patented technology goes where no membrane has gone before.
ZwitterCo’s Membrane Technology Improves Performance
