Water treatment

We provide water treatment solutions when conventional solutions are inadequate. We use the infra-structure of existing plants, supplementing them if necessary with units required for pre-treatment.

F17

Economical benefits

We customise water treatment methods to your needs and ensure a speedy launch.

F3

Environmental benefits

We improve the recycling rate of the plant by recycling water back into the process.

F8

Safety benefits

Safety is at the core of our operations. Professional work means working safely.

Water treatment

Our water treatment solutions:

Industrial water

We provide water treatment services for the different phases of industrial manufacturing processes. Our services include clean water services and treatment of wastewater to be reused in the process, drained into the sewage system or conducted into the water system

We plan and implement the treatment of process water on-site. We improve the recycling rate of the plant by recycling water back into the process. This helps reduce the volume of water going down the drain, which both protects the environment and saves costs.

We also identify solutions for the further treatment and utilisation of the waste generated by the water treatment itself.

Sludges and other aqueous waste

The amount of waste may be reduced by drying the sludge, which helps to minimise the costs of treatment and the need to transport waste. In many cases, the extracted water may be returned to circulation on-site.

At the time of drying, the sludge may be treated to recover raw materials suitable for further use, to minimise the hazardousness of the waste and to improve the options for final disposal. This helps return raw materials into circulation, saves costs and reduces the environmental impact.

Water from landfills and waste treatment sites

We remedy restorable municipal and industrial dumping grounds, build landfill treatment systems and maintain landfills.

In leachates from landfills as well as water generated in waste treatment sites, the concentrations of contaminants may still exceed target values, even if the waste is pre-treated and the landfill body is already restored. In this case, the water must be treated before it goes to a municipal or other public treatment plant.

Sometimes it is reasonable to treat the leachate before it leaves the landfill. This way, it is possible that the water may not have to be drained at all, and it may be possible to apply for a permit to release it directly into the water system.

Sewage waste

We receive and treat liquid waste generated during sewage maintenance, such as sand, oil and grease trap waste. Our equipment separates the fractions suitable for material utilisation from the treated waste, which are then used to replace virgin materials in applications such as environmental construction.

We also actively seek new utilisation applications for the fractions separated from sewage waste. Fractions that are not suitable for material utilisation go to licensed energy recovery or disposal.

Groundwater

Many hazardous, soil-contaminating substances are water-soluble and may have settled in the groundwater from soil contaminated at an earlier stage. Pumping and cleaning can prevent hazardous substances from spreading into a larger area.

The most efficient way to treat groundwater is to remove the source of the discharge. We take account of the need to clean both the groundwater and the soiland identify a method or a combination of methods that is most appropriate for the particular site in question.

Ditch water

When contaminated soil is remedied through soil disposal, the ditch may become filled with water contaminated with the same substances as the soil.

We treat ditch water in two different ways. If the volumes are large, on-site treatment is the simplest solution. If the volumes are small, we will collect the water to be treated by one of our Nordic plants.
