Collecting wastes for the REMEB recycled membrane manufacture
Universitat Jaume I – ITC and Facsa have been collecting and studying different wastes for the manufacture of the REMEB project recycled membranes, which are based on agricultural and industrial wastes, for wastewater reuse. They have, for instance, received different marble dust samples through the Centro Tecnológico de Mármol of Murcia (Marble Technological Centre in Murcia) and the marble product manufacturing company Molduras de Mármol.
Among other producing sectors, they also visited a coloured paper manufacturing company in the province of Castellón and collected paper wastes to analyse its incorporation in the REMEB ceramic membrane composition.
They are characterising and comparing them. The proportions of each raw material are being adjusted to obtain pieces without defects and to obtain membranes with the best performances.
