Industrial water and waste treatment
Most industrial processes generate waste streams that need to be treated or disposed of, and many companies face tough requirements. The ability to treat waste and reduce the amount for disposal is therefore key to keep the license to operate and to extend capacity. Alfa Laval offers a variety of solutions for on-site water and waste treatment plus recovery of water, heat and even products from your process.
Reduce your environmental footprint
All human, commercial and industrial activities produce waste products that are harmful to our environment unless treated. The world is therefore constantly on the look-out for ways to reduce pollution, provide clean water, use less energy and recycle energy already used. With growing populations and living standards plus water scarcity in many areas, there is also an increasing need for water reuse.
On the way to zero discharge
Alfa Laval helps reduce the environmental footprint from water and waste streams, by maximizing reuse of water, by turning waste to value, and by minimizing energy consumption and waste. Our wide spectrum of equipment helps companies
- Meet effluent discharge criteria with efficient, compact wastewater treatment systems
- Reuse water with our tertiray filtration solutions
- Reduce the amount of waste for disposal, recover heat and produce biogas with efficient sludge treatment
- Recover valuable products from your process for reuse or sale.
Wastewater - an untapped water resource
More and more realise that wastewater can also be a valuable water resource. There are many good reasons to consider reusing biologically treated municipal and industrial wastewater: Increase water resources, reduce intake of new water and limit effluent flow loads to sewers.
Reclaimed water can be used for numerous applications e.g. industrial process water, cooling towers and wash water; surface irrigation of crops, vineyards and golf courses; recreation lakes, wetlands, wildlife habitat and stream augmentation and ground water recharge.
Water treated with Alfa Laval MBR and AS-H Iso-Disc filtration systems can even be used as potable water if a final polishing step e.g. UV radiation, ultrafiltration, nanofiltration, reverse osmosis, active coal, ozone or chlor is added.
