Screencap is an EU funded project demonstrating at full scale a promising finescreen technology to recover suspended solids including cellulose from waste water on the basis of particle size.
Finescreens have potentially significant advantages in comparison with existing solid separation technologies based on density differences. Screencap adapts, installs and operates at full scale the finescreen technology at one of the two identical treatment trains of a waste water treatment plant in the Netherlands. Comparison with the other treatment train enables to establish the performance of the finescreen technology. A dedicated impact assessment is part of the project.
