CARTIF researchers carry out the first laboratory tests of the LIFE Algaecan project with the spray dryer, to know the operating conditions of microalgae drying, the main microorganisms with which this project works to achieve the water treatment waste from the fruit and vegetables processing industry.

These tests have been carried out at different inlet temperatures and inlet flow percentages to find the best option with the highest yield of microalgae powder production.

The technology developed in this project allows to obtain high quality final effluents that can be reused (e.g. in irrigation and cleaning) or discharged into watercourses while reducing the cost of FVPI treatment and the environmental impact associated with waste sludge generation in traditional aerobic treatment systems and its usual landfilling.
