Dipl.- Ing. Peter Bolduan
CEO, atech innovations GmbH, Germany
Dipl.- Ing. Peter Bolduan studied Life Science Technologies (biotechnology) at University of Applied Science in Lemgo, Germany from 1986-1990. He worked as project manager in industrial waste water treatment for 3 years at the engineering company in Hannover focusing on water treatment and recycling mainly for train washing water of Deutsche Bahn AG. In 1993 he joint atech innovations gmbh, Germany as a sales engineer and from 1995 to the present, he became managing director of the company. Peter has 30 Years of experience in manufacturing and use of ceramic membrane. He has started his career in sales, engineering and design of ceramic membranes systems, followed by forming atech innovations as one of the world’s leading ceramic membrane manufacturers. He has gained international reputation by introduction of ceramic membranes into different industrial processes and various industries. Peter owns several patents for manufacturing and use of ceramic membranes, is author of various publications related to membranes and speaker on international conferences and membrane courses.

Treatment of Residuals from Biogas Production
The climate conferences of the last years have among other things the goal to reduce the global warming by reduction of the CO2 output, (climatic neutrality to 2050 in EU, Canada,...). Therefore, worldwide efforts are being made to increase the share of renewable energies, including biogas, which is preferably produced from renewable raw materials and agricultural residues through fermentation and, in the best case, serves as a substitute for natural gas. In order to make production as efficient and climate-neutral as possible, the fermentation residues produced during fermentation must be highly concentrated in order to minimize the transport costs of the residues used as fertilizer. Due to their properties, ceramic membranes are ideally suited to treat this water, which is extremely difficult to treat, in such a way that it can be used as an approved fertilizer in concentrated form. In the course of the lecture, the necessary process technology will be explained on the basis of plants that have been constructed.
