Total water management solutions for process and wastewater recovery and recycling.
Water scarcity affects us all, and as a result the ‘water footprint’ of many companies is coming under close scrutiny. Industries looking to reduce costs and improve their water and carbon footprint are rethinking water by recovering what was previously seen as waste and transforming it into a resource. This enables them to reduce costs, increase efficiencies, meet ever-demanding environmental targets and continue to deliver operational excellence.
To ensure you are getting the best value out of your water, we have designed a number of solutions that reduce wastewater disposal costs and recover water for use in the manufacturing process. Biosep™ membrane bioreactors for example, will treat wastewater from food and beverage industries to produce an effluent that can be reused as a ‘waste to resource’ in industrial applications.
Further treatment of this effluent can also be applied by reverse osmosis to produce high-purity water for more sensitive industrial applications, such as cooling treatment and boiler heating. Biological sludge created by the process can also be digested to produce biogas and treated to produce nitrogen and phosphate-rich fertiliser as a valuable by-product.
The economic benefits of water recovery are significant. Every cubic metre of recycled or reused water means a corresponding reduction in mains water supply and wastewater discharge costs.
