VTA Biocitran®

The future of sludge dewatering.

VTA Biocitran in droplet form

VTA Biocitran® is a high-performance product specifically developed to improve sludge dewatering.

Based on an innovative development, this is a product with selected additives ensuring increased dewaterability, better floc stability and a distinctly visible clearer centrate.

Inspired by the citrate cycle, the product ensures stable and enhanced cleaning performance, is fully biocompatible and guarantees safe and rapid phosphate precipitation.

Dosing with  VTA Biocitran® at a turbulent point upstream of the dewatering unit is recommended in order to ensure good mixing and thus an improved product effect.

VTA Biocitran® leads to a sustained reduction of sludge dewatering costs.


Improves dewatering:

  • improves  dewatering properties
  • optimises polymer performance
  • clearer, cleaner centrate

Improved sludge properties:

  • increase of dry substance
  • reduced polymer consumption

System coagulator

  • improved floc structure and floc stability
  • compact floc


  • Appearance: yellow, low-viscosity liquid
  • Density: approx. 1.25 - 1.35 g/cm³
  • Solubility: fully miscible with water
  • Freezing point: The product is not sensitive to frost

Shelf life

VTA Biocitran® can be stored for at least 6 – 12 months. Possible slight cloudiness does not influence its effectiveness


We recommend only using storage tanks and pipelines made of acid-resistant material, such as polyethylene, PP, PVC or rubber-lined steel for storage and transport.


VTA Biocitran® is available loose in tankers or in 1,300-kg containers.

Possible combination

VTA Biocitran® and VTA Mudinator®


The combination of the two innovative products VTA mudinator® and VTA Biocitran® also sets new standards

Introducing VTA Biocitran® into digested sludge using ultrasound prior to preconditioning produces synergy effects during the ultrasound treatment – allowing more effective dewatering of the digested sludge and even reducing polymer consumption.
