Make new from old – WEHRLE integrates a new leachate treatment plant in an existing system with beneficial advantages for the operator.
The landfill of Marston Vale, a small town near Bedford, treats approximately 450 m3 of leachate per day, consisting of the leachate produced on the landfill itself as well as on many other landfills, disposed of by tankers every day.
Pesticides have - naturally - a direct impact on ecosystems. This impact is increasingly considered as a critical factor in many countries, because pesticides act not very specific and are often persistent. Moreover, they are transferred from agricultural areas by the water path to other natural areas, where they continue having an impact. Increasingly, pesticides are also found in drinking water and pose a health risk for the general public.
With more than 350 references in more than 45 countries throughout the 5 continents, they guarantee their experience as an engineering company, technology supplier and service provider for the treatment of high-load wastewater and waste recovery.
Robert Körner, Head of Division Marketing & Strategic Sales, tells us about the solutions WEHRLE offers to the water treatment industry.
Upgrade of an industrial wastewater treatment plant to Zero Liquid Discharge
The implementation of a completely wastewater-free production usually fails due to the decreasing quality of the recycled water. For a cosmetics manufacturer, a conventional wastewater treatment plant was upgraded to turn the vision of "Zero Liquid Discharge" into reality.
Bangkok, Nhong Khaem - WEHRLE and its Thai cooperation partner E-Square are going to build a wastewater treatment plant for the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA). The plant located in the south of Bangkok will treat leachate with a concentration of 7,500 mg/l COD and 500 mg/l NH4-N and have a total throughput of 800 m³/d. The discharge values to reach are 100 mg/l COD and 10 mg/l NH4-N.
4200 inhabitants certainly produce wastewater, too. In Pevek, they produce approximately 2000 m³/d. In the future, this wastewater shall also be treated for direct discharge into the East Siberian Sea. A sewage treatment plant in a permafrost region: how can this be done?
The city of Nonthaburi, which is located north of Bangkok and Thailand's second largest city, requires a leachate treatment plant for its landfill. For this purpose, the Thai city relies on technology from WEHRLE, plant manufacturer and expert for complex wastewater treatment, located in Emmendingen in Southern Germany.
October 2019 – German technology supplier and plant manufacturer WEHRLE Umwelt GmbH is presenting a complete leachate treatment plant at the venue of ISWA World Congress 2019 (International Solid Waste Association), near the famous Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao (Spain).
Resource Recovery from Concentrates arising from Industrial Water Use
WEHRLE is proud to announce to have won the International Water Association’s (IWA) Resource Recovery Cluster Best Practice Award 2019 together with the other members of the research consortium HighCon, that focuses on the recycling of concentrated brines from industrial effluent treatment, reducing disposal costs and offering an opportunity for the reuse of captured materials.
