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 Water Treatment achieves the energy sustainability objectives for 2023 in 2019


In 2050, the Dutch national government intends to have no more emissions of greenhouse gases. An Energy Agreement for sustainable growth of the Netherlands was subsequently drawn up with agreements on the share of renewable energy in 2023 and the road to 2050.
