Membrane-based applications in the tannery industry offer several benefits and can be categorized into different areas:
Wastewater Treatment: Membrane technology, such as ultrafiltration and reverse osmosis, effectively treats and purifies tannery wastewater. Membrane filtration selectively removes contaminants, enabling the recovery of clean water for reuse or safe discharge.
Salt Recovery: Membrane technologies like reverse osmosis can recover and concentrate salt from tannery wastewater. Salt recovery reduces the need for fresh salt and minimizes waste.
Chemical Recovery: Membrane-based techniques, such as nanofiltration or membrane distillation, aid in the recovery and concentration of valuable chemicals from spent tanning liquors or process streams. Recovered chemicals can be reused, reducing costs and minimizing environmental impact.
Effluent Compliance: Membrane filtration systems help tanneries meet effluent discharge regulations by effectively removing pollutants. Membrane technology contributes to minimizing the environmental impact of tannery operations.
Concentration and Separation: Membrane processes, particularly ultrafiltration, can concentrate and separate desired components in tannery streams. Concentration and separation optimize processes, improve product quality, and minimize waste.
