Cellvation® is an innovative service that reclaims and upcycles cellulose from sewage treatment plants
Cellvation® brings significant cost reductions for STPs by removing and upcycling toilet paper, which otherwise, needs a costly treatment.
It allows for sewage waste to be transformed into something useful, which in turn finds various applications.
Makes the STP part of a cellulose circular economy
and contributes greatly to its corporate social responsibility.
Upcycling cellulose from toilet paper
Toilet paper is made from cellulose that comes from trees.
Approximately, 180 000 tons of toilet paper per year are flushed in the Netherlands alone.
Global production of toilet paper consumes around 27 000 trees daily.
When used, toilet paper becomes a waste that gets burned or dumped at a landfill. This traditional method of disposal is very costly and unsustainable.
We provide an alternative. Cellvation® is a process that can be used instead of or in conjunction with the primary treatment of a sewage treatment plant. We remove the toilet paper and then upcycle it into a cellulose product.
Our installation at the waste water treatment plant Geestmerambacht produces up to 400 kg of cellulose per day.
