Water reuse: wastewater and process water recycling

Water reuse – water recovery with membrane techniques

The cost price of water will only increase in the future. Companies have every interest in recovering and reusing company wastewater. The latest membrane technology allows a substantial part of the current effluent (60 to 80 %) to be reused in the production process. Of course, this results in substantial savings: both on the drinking water bill and on discharge costs. The effluent from the water treatment plant can be upgraded to process water of various qualities, from drinking water quality to demineralised water. Thanks to our many years of experience, we can help you to reuse more of your water.

How do we work?

The feasibility of each project is checked beforehand on the basis of a recent water analysis. If necessary, a test installation is used. The final system is fully customised. This is based on the type of wastewater, the intended quality for reuse and the economic aspects. These compact installations, whether or not built in a container, are fully automated, equipped with a fully automatic CIP and can be remotely controlled and monitored.

Circular water management

Water can be reused in various ways. On the one hand, grey water or process water can be reused as process water or for flushing toilets. On the other hand, this purified water can also be reused as drinking water in the company. This is truely circular water management with a very low ecological footprint. The savings you can realise with this are considerable!

Recycling water with membrane technology: efficient, low-maintenance and with a rapid return on investment.

Recover your energy

In almost every production company, warm waste or process water flows circulate, which are often simply discharged or go directly to the water treatment plant. As a result, too much heat is still lost from liquid flows. With today’s sky-high energy costs, recovering this heat is certainly an opportunity. With Läckeby heat exchangers, heat can also be recovered from highly viscous fluids. These patented heat exchangers are very maintenance friendly and almost insensitive to blockages. Moreover, they have a minimal space requirement (modular and stackable system).
