Wastewater treatment plant


Germany is the European country where most waste water is recycled. More than 96 percent of wastewater from private households and public facilities is discharged and cleaned in nearby wastewater treatment plants.

But what about commercial and industrial waste water?

In order to protect the waters against contamination, waste water discharges may be permitted in accordance with Clause 57 (1) of the Water Management Act (WHG) only if the pollutant load of the waste water is kept as low as is possible according to the state of the art. In determining the state of the art, taking into account the proportionality between the effort and benefit of possible measures and the principle of prevention and prevention, in relation to installations of a particular species, the following criteria must be taken into account in particular: 

  • Use of low-waste technology
  • Use of less hazardous substances
  • Promoting the recovery and recycling of the substances produced and used in each process
            and where appropriate,
    waste comparable methods,
  • Devices and operating methods that have been successfully tested in operation
  • Advances in technology and scientific knowledge
  • Type, impact and quantity of the respective emissions
  • Etc.

Targeted use of cavitative ultrasound is currently the most adequate solution of the points listed here. As a project partner of Ultrawaves GmbH, we offer a powerful ultrasonic disintegration system In the food industry as well as in production plants (paper, steel, etc.) a considerable water demand is required. The use of chemical agents is essential in most cases, which leads to significant problems with waste water. The intake of THE COD (chemical oxygen demand) values alone is becoming more and more problematic.

ULTRAWAVES high-performance ultrasonic systemes is used in industrial wastewater treatment plants in a wide range of applications. This includes primarily sludge treatment, but also wastewater treatment in the form of the control of blown sludge and foaming, as well as better nitrogen elimination by providing internal carbon carriers.
