Advanced Anaerobic Industrial Effluent Treatment

Sept. 3, 2021

Flexible anaerobic effluent treatment based on BIOPAQ®IC technology and implementable in existing assets.

The BIOPAQ®IC technology is proven technology which is recognized worldwide as one of the most efficient means to clean industrial wastewater and produce biogas. BIOPAQ®ICX, a new development in the BIOPAQ® product line, was designed by Paques in order to meet customer’s evolving requirements.

BIOPAQ®ICX combines the excellent properties of the BIOPAQ®IC reactor with a high flexibility with regard to tank design. The compact system can be implemented in existing tanks or can be used to retrofit existing under-performing EGSB reactors. Due to a high granular biomass concentration, the system can operate with high volumetric loading rates. The 2-stage biomass retention prevents wash-out of biomass, high liquid velocities and excellent mixing properties, enabling the effective treatment of a wide range of industrial wastewater.
