“The treated wastewater is reused in the factory, saving thousands of litres precious drinking water.”

The capacity of the customer’s previous wastewater treatment system no longer met requirements. In order for the company to continue to comply with the discharge regulations, a state-of-the-art Redox Water Technology wastewater treatment system was installed.

Profitable Solution

  • In collaboration with our partner UCY Mexico, Redox Water Technology designed and constructed a wastewater and sanitary water treatment system. Filters are installed to take the larger solids out and DAF units to separate large parts, fats and floating material from the wastewater. This process of followed by advanced biological treatment and tertiary treatment.
  • To achieve a lower energy consumption, the customer opted for in-depth aeration by means of efficient turbo compressors.
  • The various sludge flows are thickened on site in order to minimise transport costs.
  • The entire system is fully automated for optimal performance. The purification process can be monitored remotely in real-time via the Internet.
