Success of the application of PETRONET for the washing and recycling of textile wastewater

The product “PETRONET – ALFA”, from the range of products developed by AMAPEX, has been tested, first in a pilot plant and later in industrial production, to remove contaminants from the washing of textile pieces in dry cleaning and textile finishing factories. These processes need to use large amounts of water (about 40 Liters of […]

New developments in Anaerobic Digestion

In anaerobic digesters for the production of methane gas, from Urban Solid Waste a large amount of Hydrogen Sulfide (SH2) is produced, which acts as a pollutant and, consequently, it is necessary to proceed to desulfurization to optimize the results. Amapex has developed a variety of its range of Petronet products that acts as a […]

Petronet as a coadjuvant in the production of Biogas in Anaerobic Digestion Processes

We have recently tested the action of Petronet in promoting the hydrolysis of lignocellulosic matter, from the plant mantle. It has been proven that the addition of a small amount of Petronet in the remains of the plant mantle in an aqueous solution used as a restructuring agent in the digestion, increased the production of […]
