Wastewater treatment for Renewi Smink

Due to aging of the existing waste water treatment plant Logisticon Water Treatment was asked to supply a new wastewater treatment plant for Smink Waste Treatment, part of the new Renewi company. Smink has been involved in the collection, processing and recycling of waste products since 1955 and manages a landfill in Amersfoort, the Netherlands. At this landfill leachate water needs to be treated before final discharge.

The new leachate waste water treatment plant is designed for a hydraulic capacity of 720 m3/day. It contains the same technology principle as the 20-year-old installation, but now with new generation ZeeWeed ZW500D LeapMBR Zenon membranes for an energetically optimal design.

The new installation consists of an equalization tank (200 m3), biology tank (300 m3), permeate tank (200 m3) and a stainless steel membrane tank for the MBR modules. The technical installation is completely pre-built in 4 insulated containers that have been further assembled on site. By using temporary mobile water treatment equipment from Logisticon mobile water rental solutions, the old purification has been able to function normally until the start of the new MBR installation.

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.
