Filtration system for food waste by-products

Filtration specialist Axium Process has established that membrane technology can improve or create new and sustainable revenue streams from food production by-products. This will potentialy add significant value in applications across a wide range of process industries.

Membrane filtration, which was first commercially developed in the 1960s, is used across a wide range of industries as a cost-effective and versatile technology for separation, purification, clarification and concentration, as well as an important technology for water recovery and recycling.

Recent pilot trials carried out by Axium’s engineers on extracted proteins from egg waste have caused great interest from egg processors because, once purified, they can be used in animal feeds. Membranes are ideal for this type of application as there are a number of egg proteins which can be separated and concentrated in a pure form, raising their value and allowing entry to different markets.

Confectionery production generates large volumes of low solids sugary water. This application can benefit from membrane technology because, once concentrated, the water can be used in animal feeds and provides reductions in effluent disposal costs.
