The Fitec Skimming and Plastics Removal System continuously removes floating contaminants such as plastics from the surface of the digester using a skimming pump. A screw press separates the contaminants from the digestate.

Can be retrofitted into digesters measuring up to 18 m (60 ft) in diameter and 20 m (65 ft) in height if there is no pre-existing central column. The light fraction of contaminants (such as plastics) floats to the surface of the digester, where it is skimmed out, pumped into a screw press, and then filtered for disposal.
