ClearCove Wastewater Treatment
The ClearCove technology is based on a simple, non-biological, physical-chemical process, encompassing settling and screening to provide enhanced capture of organics and solids versus conventional technologies. The ClearCapture technology enables Ultrafiltration and Reverse Osmosis membranes downstream which allows F&B processors to recover up to 80+% of their process wastewater to reuse quality without the use of biology.
How Does It Work
Influent wastewater is pumped from an equalization tank into the ClearCapture system, where it is mixed with a chemical coagulant.
When the tank fills, mixing stops and solids settle to the bottom of the tank, where they are removed to an anaerobic digester.
The remaining water is filtered through a 50-micron screen decanter, then treated by membrane filtration.
The Clear Cove ClearCapture’s technology uses little-to-no biology. By removing the biology from wastewater operations, Food and Beverage producers can realize considerable financial and energy savings. Moreover, they can spare themselves the hassle of dealing with troublesome bugs, which enables them to do what they do best: produce Food and Beverage offerings.
Targeted adopters for the technology are F&B processors that generate a wastewater stream, ClearCove currently targets the following including but not limited to dairy processors, breweries, wineries, fruit/vegetable processing, soft drinks, seafood, meat processing, juice, and snack food processors.
