Biological Effluent Treatment

Development of ecologically sound separation processes for the production of high-value textile fibres in Germany

The technical solutions developed and the tests carried out to improve the environmental sustainability of the water retting process prove that fibres of high and consistent quality can be produced from the raw materials hemp and flax. At the same time, this resulted in cost advantages over the field retting practised to date in Germany.
