IFAT 2018 | New Technologies in the Wastewater Industry
Contaminants from industry and private households are increasingly polluting our water. The topic of safety and environmental protection is more than ever in the focus of the wastewater industry in Europe. New challenges that require new technologies. IFAT 2018 presents ideas and possible solutions in order to permanently ensure high water quality. The company XYLEM is calling for the fourth purification stage – using for example ozone in Germany, to reliably filter micropollutants. The firm INVENT also takes care of the safe elimination of microplastics from wastewater. It’s developed a technical solution especially for large sewage treatment plants. In industry, as in pharmaceutical firms, it is very important that by using their own sewage treatment plant, companies are never even allowed into the sewage in the first place. Another challenge for sewage technologies is the recovery of phosphorus from sewage sludge. From 2029 onwards, sewage treatment systems for more than 50,000 residents will be obliged to recover phosphorus and to recycle it, for the long-term conservation of resources. Cleaning, recycling and conserving resources are all important topics in the wastewater industry at IFAT 2018. But it’s also the responsibility of every one of us not to let waste and pollution arise in the first place. IFAT 2018. The place to find solutions for the future.
