Enhancement of Water Absorbency Capacity of Sludge

Presentation :

Aprotek specializes in the supply of superabsorbent products in various industrial areas such as hygiene & packaging, cables, environment, formulation, etc. The young company co-develops superabsorbent polymer-based products. The present innovation which is covered by the French patent FR 1402724 enables, thanks to the Apromud products, to enhance water absorbency capacity by adding an additive for formulation. Most of the mineral powders such as calcium carbonate, whitewash, argile or bentonite are compatible with the Apromud products. The use of Apromud authorizes a significant increase of aqueous liquids retention in volume and therefore the reduction of products dosage to add in their environment. The objective is to confine the sludge before their valorization or elimination, facilitating transport and excavation while reducing volumes. One can therefore obtain a decrease in transport and landfill site costs.
