EMG'S Proprietary PurEffluent™ Anaerobic Technology

"The Racehorse of Wastewater Treatment"


EMG's PurEffluent™ Anaerobic Fluidized Bed Digester (AFBD) technology is ideal for waste streams generated by the food and beverage industry, providing a reliable solution for waste stream treatment with clear performance advantages, while enhancing regulatory compliance and significantly reducing costs.

The PurEffluent™ technology delivers on the promise of a stable, automated, and resilient process that can handle many adverse operating conditions and recover quickly from upsets.


The PurEffluent™ Technology Research & Development



Known by many as the racehorse of wastewater treatment, EMG’s Anaerobic Fluidized Bed Digester (AFBD) process offers the highest organic removal efficiency in the smallest possible footprint.
Four decades ago, the anaerobic process was known to be difficult to maintain and operate consistently under adverse conditions. That challenge is what inspired EMG to invest years in R&D to make the technology viable for the demands of industrial applications.
EMG's PurEffluent™ AFBD technology was developed to perfectly suit waste streams generated by the Food & Beverage industry:
  • It achieves some of the highest organic loading rates in the industry at the smallest footprint.
  • It delivers a reliable solution for waste stream treatment with clear performance advantages, while enhancing regulatory compliance and significantly reducing costs.


  • The PurEffluent™ technology delivers on the promise of a stable, automated, and resilient process that can handle many adverse operating conditions and recover quickly from upsets. 

The PurEffluent™ Technology Description



The PurEffluent™ Technology is a high-rate, wastewater treatment process. The basic design of the PurEffluent™ Technology is as follows:
  • The PurEffluent™ tank is filled with media to which anaerobic bacteria attaches.
  • This media inside the tank allows maximum surface area exposure and treatment.
  • System accumulates very high bacterial populations.


Result:


Very stable treatment process that converts the waste stream into biogas
while maintaining stability and resiliency under overloading or shock events.



The PurEffluent™ Technology is a very stable treatment system that brings high and consistent removal efficiencies to your facility,
All delivered in a compact, highly-automated process.
