Why can membrane separation treat mariculture wastewater

Release Date:



With the rapid development of mariculture industry, the treatment of aquaculture wastewater has become increasingly prominent. Traditional wastewater treatment methods are often difficult to effectively remove harmful substances in wastewater, and secondary pollution may be produced in the treatment process. Therefore, it is particularly important to find an efficient and environmentally friendly wastewater treatment technology. As a new wastewater treatment method, membrane separation technology has shown great potential and advantages in the treatment of mariculture wastewater.

Desalination separation membrane

Membrane separation technology is selective through the membrane as the separation medium, when there is a certain driving force on both sides of the membrane (such as pressure difference, concentration difference, potential difference, etc.), the raw material side components selectively through the membrane to achieve the purpose of separation and purification. In the treatment of mariculture wastewater, membrane separation technology can play multiple roles to achieve effective purification and resource utilization of wastewater.

First of all, membrane separation technology can efficiently remove suspended matter, colloids, macromolecular organic matter and so on in wastewater. These substances will not only cause pollution to the water quality, but also may block pipes and equipment, affecting the normal operation of the aquaculture industry. Through the membrane separation technology, these harmful substances can be effectively trapped on one side of the membrane, so as to achieve the preliminary purification of wastewater.

Secondly, membrane separation technology can achieve selective separation of specific ions. In mariculture wastewater, some harmful substances such as heavy metal ions and nutrient salts are often difficult to remove by traditional physical or chemical methods. The membrane separation technology can selectively separate ions from wastewater according to their charge, size and other characteristics, so as to achieve the purpose of deep purification.

In addition, membrane separation technology also has the advantages of simple operation, low energy consumption, no secondary pollution and so on. Compared with traditional wastewater treatment methods, membrane separation technology does not need to add chemical reagents and will not produce secondary pollution. At the same time, the operation process is relatively simple, does not require complex equipment and processes, and reduces the processing cost.

It is worth mentioning that the membrane separation technology can also realize the resource utilization of wastewater. In mariculture wastewater, in addition to harmful substances, there are also a certain amount of valuable substances, such as proteins, amino acids and so on. Through membrane separation technology, these valuable substances can be extracted from wastewater and used in feed production, fertilizer manufacturing and other fields to realize the resource utilization of wastewater.

Of course, membrane separation technology also has some challenges and limitations in the treatment of mariculture wastewater. For example, the selectivity, permeability, stability and other properties of the membrane need to be continuously optimized and improved; At the same time, the service life and replacement cycle of the film are also issues that need to be considered. However, with the continuous development and improvement of membrane separation technology, these problems are expected to be gradually solved.

Membrane separation technology has significant advantages and potential in the treatment of mariculture wastewater. Through efficient removal of harmful substances, selective separation of specific ions and resource utilization of wastewater, membrane separation technology provides strong technical support for the sustainable development of mariculture industry. In the future, with the continuous progress of technology and the expansion of application scope, membrane separation technology will play a more important role in the field of mariculture wastewater treatment.
