Project AquaFit4Use for industrial waste water re-use

The innovation challenge of the AquaFit4Use project is not the application of new technologies on waste water and process water treatment, but to treat waste water for process water production fit-for-(re)-use.

It is a joint initiative of the chemical, food & beverage, pulp & paper and textile industry together with research institutes and technology & installation suppliers.

The European Commission supports this project with a budget of € 14,5 million (of which € 9,65 M is EC subsidies). The AquaFit4Use group contains a total of 36 partners from 12 EU countries.

Logisticon Water Treatment, member of the group since November 2008, has tested a mobile membrane bioreactor (MBR) at Perstorp (a chemical company) in Sweden. Especially for this project a MBR-installation was designed and built with the possibility of remote (long distance) operation and contains an extensive amount of measurements and data logging. This MBR unit  uses submerged membranes, with a capacity between 25-45 m3/day. The existing waste water treatment was compared to this new unit.

This unit is now also available for other projects.

Logisticon builds surface water pilot for Dunea


Dunea is looking for new drinking water sources because their current system, consisting of two river water sources (Maas and Lek) with 80 km of pipelines towards the dunes, is becoming increasingly vulnerable. Pollution is lurking and prolonged dry periods mean there is little river water available for drinking water purposes. Besides, the long pipelines have to be removed increasingly to accommodate other plans, which makes them temporarily unavailable.
