From potato peelings to blood, large volumes of waste materials pile up in the food processing industry. Today, these materials serve limited purposes. Cleaning all this waste produces a large wastewater volume. As part of the EU Project 'BioSuck' and in collaboration with an international task force, scientists of the Fraunhofer Institute UMSICHT responded by developing new waste and wastewater management tools for the food industry. Here is the idea: Suction off the waste materials using the vacuum technology to save water and reduce the costs of wastewater removal. From May 30 to June 3, 2016, the scientists will showcase their project at the IFAT Trade Show (Hall A5, booth 217/316).
