ANAERGY is a disruptive technology, financed by the EU SMEi Phase2 programme, for efficiently treating water discharges in the small and medium-sized food industry. The solution removes the 99% of the COD in wastewaters, minimizing the area required, and the energy and chemical consumption, resulting in a reduction of O&M costs. ANAERGY is a modular and tailor-made technology that integrates different processes in the whole system, being fully adaptable to the customer requirements.
Five milestones have been established in order to ensure the successful development of ANAERGY. These milestones gather from the full development of INGEOBRAS’ own technology based on anaerobic digestion, to ANAERGY’s industrialization and commercialization.
Upgraded design of the anaerobic digester
- 100% Completado
Standardization of integration modules
- 100% completado
Manufacture a test bench
- 59% completado
Consistent industrial chain
- 94% completado
Establishment of a commercial department
- 71% completado
INGEOBRAS has developed and demonstrated an innovative technology for the treatment of industrial waste water. It is the first time that a modular system that is capable of integrating aerobic, anaerobic and advanced oxidation technology has been designed. It admits different combinations according to the needs, so that a high rate of organic matter removal (-BOD) (-COD) is achieved at a very low cost.
ADVANTAGES OF ANAERGY
ANAERGY technology provides both the user and the environment with multiple benefits, among which we highlight:
After carrying out the technology demonstration in different environments and at different scales, the technology has reached a level of technological maturity of TRL7.
In the last few months, the milestones 1 and 2 have been 100% completed and currently, the INGEOBRAS team is fully focused on optimizing the technology and creating a test bench, which is a fundamental part of ANAERGY’s innovation and commercial strategy.
