Industry Potato


Kemeo has extensive experience in sand, clay and starch removal from effluent from the potato industry. Removal of sand, clay and starch is a relative simple form of water treatment. Kemeo separators for the potato industry are equipped with special features for optimized removal of particles and to minimize chances of blockage in the separator. In most cases, the wash water can be reused after removal of sand and clay. The removal of starch from the waste water is often used as a pre-treatment for biological treatment.  

The water from the potato industry can be treated using the Kemeo treatment systems: 
  • Settling systems, reduction up to 95% on sand and clay. 
  • Settling systems, combined with biological treatment, reduction up to 95% on COD can be achieved.  

Kemeo can offer the best fitting solution for your specific circumstances.
