Turning landfill wastewater into drinking water quality
03 February 2020
Wanner International’s seal-less pumps are enabling the production of effluent water with drinking water quality from a contaminated landfill site. Wanner has supplied three, T100 ultra-high-pressure reverse osmosis (RO) process pumps to APATEQ, manufacturers of custom water treatment systems.
APATEQ required high-pressure pumps for a part of its 5 RO stages for processing leachate at a treatment plant run by the largest private landfill owner in Sicily, Italy. Using APATEQ’S pioneering processes, the contaminated water from the landfill site is turned into drinking water quality providing invaluable cost savings and environmental benefits by reducing the high cost for transport and treating of the leachate at an external facility on the Italian mainland.
Ulrich Bäuerle, Chief Technology Officer, at APATEQ said: “We have decades of experience in the water and wastewater business and global industrial product manufacturing and commercialisation. Our corporate and technical teams are comprised of dedicated experts that aim for environmental protection and water conservation. As Hydra-Cell pumps have proven reliability, this provided the ideal solution for use with our smart water treatment systems”.
