Increasing the water availability and protecting the environment
Global demand for water is projected to exceed supply by 40 per cent in 2030. Rising demand, cost and environmental awareness are driving the need for improved efficiency and sustainability of water treatment plants. Treating the waste water to recycle/reuse has become a viable option in order to minimize the water scarcity problems. However, waste water treatment options will be dependent on the type of contaminants present because of the production process and determine necessary treatment to ensure efficient water recovery. Discharge of wastewater requires further treatment to comply with the local environmental regulations.
Plant owners and operators face constant pressure to save costs in terms of membrane replacements, consumables, energy and labour. Moreover, feed characteristic changes continuously. Operating waste water treatment plant require continuous optimization of individual process units and chemical dosage. Following SOPs is not enough to maintain the plant performance as operations do not allow inspection of the complex physical-chemical processes inside the individual treatment processes. Understanding the discharge regulations in different regions and selection of treatment process to comply those regulations could be challenging for plant operators. As a plant stakeholder, you will benefit from independent third-party expertise to help address national and international requirements for discharge quality.
TÜV SÜD has a global network and technical expertise to enable stakeholders to achieve safe and operational excellence of waste water treatment plants with innovative and high-quality concepts during planning, construction, implementation and operation.
TÜV SÜD offers complementary services focused on water treatment plant operations & maintenance optimisation and secondly on the discharge requirements. The unique value-maximising potential of the waste water plant optimisation draws on the insights gained from Biowin/Petwin modelling.
