Alfa Laval at IFAT 2018 – Solutions for the circular economy

The updated version of Alfa Laval’s MBR membrane system and free decanter performance check-ups are two of the attractions in Alfa Laval’s stand (A1.251) at the upcoming IFAT exhibition in Munich, May 14-18. The company will present its solutions for the circular economy and demonstrate to visitors how they can reduce their plants’ environmental footprints, regenerate value and minimize lifecycle costs.


Focus on water, sludge and heat

Alfa Laval has a circular perspective on wastewater treatment, and at IFAT the company will present its solutions for:

Water – Recovery and reuse of water and removal of micro plastics.

Sludge – Turning waste into value, efficient dewatering and thickening solutions.

Heat – Energy savings through heat recovery, optimization of biogas production.


“We look forward to discussing the challenges and possibilities that municipal and industrial wastewater treatment plants are facing with visitors at IFAT. With our solutions for the circular economy we can help plants find ways to reduce their environmental impact, tap into new revenue streams and lower their costs,” says Gunnel Hagstam, Global Sales Manager, Water & Waste.


Launch of Alfa Laval’s updated MBR membrane

Alfa Laval launches an updated version of its MBR membrane system at IFAT 2018. New features include the self-cleaning S Aerator that opens up possibilities for big energy savings and Alfa Laval’s QuickSwap technology that will reduce the time spent on changing membranes dramatically. A working miniature demo will be on display at the stand.

Free decanter performance check-up

One of Alfa Laval’s key services for wastewater plants is the Decanter Performance Audit. The first step of this service is an on-site visit from an Alfa Laval professional who collects process and operating data related to the decanters. After an in-depth analysis, the current status of the equipment is summarized in a Performance Audit Report, together with recommendations on how to improve performance and optimize operating costs. Visitors from Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Spain, France, Italy and UK can sign up for a free Decanter Performance Audit at Alfa Laval’s stand at IFAT. The check-up only applies to Alfa Laval decanters.


Products on display

The products on display at the stand are:

  • A working model of an Alfa Laval MBR membrane system
  • ALDEC G3-45 – Alfa Laval’s flagship decanter for high performance sludge thickening and dewatering.
  • AS-H Iso-Disc – A compact, cost-efficient alternative to sand filters.
  • ALSHE STW 200 – A self-cleaning, spiral heat exchanger that recovers heat from sludge.
  • AS-H Plate Press – A continuous, high-capacity plate press with low requirements for manpower, polymers and energy.
