Project Details


Volumes of effluents from herring processing industries are important and their organic loads are high, which means that the cost imparted for their discharge is substantial. However, the processing effluents also contain molecules with good marked potential which are discarded.

Technological separation solutions available today do not fit the herring industries due to their poor flux and their poor chemical tolerance and also because they are not well suited for recovery of organic fractions. PIPE will test cutting edge technologies to address sustainability and water purification challenges.

The main goal for the PIPE project is to test cutting edge technologies to separate water and organic material from pelagic industries effluents and to characterise as well as valorise the organic material collected

The PIPE projet has 3 innovative values:

for the first time, technologies such as ceramic membranes and electrochemistry will be tested and their efficiency in separation organic matter from effluents will be investigated;

the functionality and bioactivity of components from pelagic industries effluents will be evaluated;

at the same time, the potential market value of the recovered fractions will be studied.
