Carbon Fibre Aerogel (CFA) - A technology for the recollection and monitoring of organic components from wastewater
Addressing the challenge of costly and inefficient wastewater treatment technologies, this solution proposed to use Carbon Fibre Aerogel (CFA) to remove and recover valuable organics from wastewater.
CFA is a super-absorbent sponge material which can be used as an attractive alternative to existing absorbent materials. Unique from conventional organic absorbents, CFA allows for the recovery of absorbed organics through mechanical squeezing or distillation allowing it to be reused for multiple absorption cycles. Its re-usability and ultra-high efficiency ( up to 190 times its own weight) lead to a lower cost-in-use for the removal and recuperation of organic material from an aqueous environment. CFA is produced from biomass waste and the production process uses by-products to supplement its energy consumption. These features offer waste recovery opportunities that provide significant environmental benefits.
