Festo is automating the world’s first plant featuring Fuzzy Filters® for removing microplastics and medication
Description:

Each year, 8,000 tons of pharmaceutical products and 10 tons of microplastics alone end up in Germany’s largest river, the Rhine. Conventional wastewater treatment plants will always struggle to deal with such large quantities of micropollutants. That is why the town of Barntrup in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia added a purification stage for micropollutants to its wastewater treatment plant – a world first using Fuzzy Filters® from Bosman and automated with pneumatics from Festo.
