Large-scale production of Crescendo

Crescendo is an innovative evaporator for corrosive liquids and gasses. The synthetic GaLiCos evaporator is made of high quality synthetic material and has a modular design. We’re proud to announce that, after performing the last functional tests, the large-production of the modules has started at the site of our Dutch supplier.

Crescendo is a technology that can evaporate corrosive and highly concentrated waste streams, such as brines, to the saturation limit. It can be applied for waste streams coming from flue gas treatment, desulphurisation and corrosive liquids and gasses in a wide pH range from 1 to 14. Low value energy can be applied as energy source, since Crescendo can run at low temperatures. The development of Crescendo was subsidised by the Partners for Water 2016-2021 programme.

European Water Tech Week

Later this month the European Water Tech Week (September 24 – 27, 2018) takes place in the city of Leeuwarden. On Wednesday September 26, in co-operation with partners, Cellvation organises a workshop on the pros and cons of resource recovery from sewage water. Prof. dr. Bruce Jefferson of Cranfield Water Science Institute (UK) will give a presentation titled Applicability of cellulose in a circular economy. You’re kindly invited to this workshop and can find more information about it here.

TechXchange SIWW 2018

‘We recover 500 kilogram cellulose daily from toilet paper in sewage water, and sell it to the asphalt industry’, said a proud director Coos Wessels of the Dutch company CirTec, specialized on the recovery of raw materials from sewage.

Wessels was one of the twelve pitchers at this year’s edition of TechXchange that was held during the Singapore International Water Week (SIWW) on 8 July.

The TechXchange forum is an integrated part of the SIWW-programme for many years now and gathers the world best water technology innovators, industrial leaders, buyers and investors. The forum provides an opportunity to present innovative technologies and facilitates round-table discussions amongst the world’s top experts.
