The project "Application of innovated flotation in water management" is solved with the financial support of the Ministry of Industry and Trade within the program "Operational Program Enterprise and Innovation for Competitiveness - Application Call VIII" under registration number CZ.01.1.02/0.0/0.0/20_321/0024614. The project will run for a two years in the period from 1 June 2021 to 31 May 2023.

The first goal of the project is based on many years of experience with dissolved air flotation applications to implement selected innovative elements into a pilot flotation unit with a capacity of 3 m3/hour. The purpose of these innovations is to achieve higher efficiency and reliability of technology. The unit will be placed in an insulated container as a compact solution for easy handling during pilot-plant testing and commissioning.

The innovated technology will be tested in two different water management segments. The first application is the thickening of activated sludge at municipal wastewater treatment plants in order to thicken the sludge to the specific density which is necessary for its further treatment (hygienisation and direct application of sludge to agricultural fields).

The second application of flotation unit is the treatment of industrial wastewater in the laundry industry, which will focus on the removal of suspended solids.

The main results of the project are:

  • PILOT-PLANT TECHNOLOGY - Flotation with a capacity of 3 m3/hour verified at two types of industry
  • UTILITY MODEL - Technical solution for modification of flotation technology for sludge thickening

The coordinator of the project is the company ASIO TECH, spol. s r.o. and another member of the project team is VODÁRENSKÁ AKCIOVÁ SPOLEČNOST, a.s.
