Reuse of industrial water
In many water-stressed catchments stricter norms on water use and efficiency targets will force industrial complexes to find ways to rethink the way they manage water demands. In the last two decades, substantial steps have been taken in the direction of process integrated and external measures in Flanders, including water-saving equipment and in-plant water recycling.
Why recycle water ?
Why choose Aquaplus?
Retrofitting existing equipment for reclamation of different waste streams require a very specific approach. Aquaplus can find the most cost-effective solution, based on the local regulation and quality requirements, based on the proprietary CIS-software. CIS-software is a modular design optimization procedure based on Aquafin’s broad experience in renovation projects.
Our tailor-made solutions take into account both technical aspects (your specific wastewater composition, know-how on wastewater treatment technologies) as well as your budget or timing constraints. Our services cover all the aspects of the project cycle, including:
Over the last 10 years part of the activities of Aquafin R&D deal with comparative and pilot research on advanced wastewater treatment technologies, including membrane filtration (MBR and tertiary), sand filtration, reverse osmosis, discfilters…
Membranes, in particular, are small footprint solutions that can be located on site where the wastewater is produced and where the water can be reused. MBRs can be combined with nanofiltration or reversed osmosis to produce high quality water for reuse. Aquafin’s efforts in membrane research resulted in a full-scale MBR installation at Schilde [first implementation in the Benelux] and in the upgrading of the effluent of WWTP Wulpen with micro-filtration and reversed osmosis prior to aquifer recharge and subsequent drinking water production. Aquafin recently carried out an analysis of the potential for standardization of MBR filtration modules and of uniform characterization methods of the membranes itself.
