Rossdorf, Germany: – Water treatment specialist EnviroChemie UK-based group member Clearfleau will be a prominent presence at the upcoming Utility Week Live event in Birmingham, showcasing its advanced technologies for converting waste into energy.
Clearfleau and EnviroChemie will be exhibitors at the event, with an isle stand at Booth H31 at the National Exhibition Center. Its event team will be led by Clearfleau’s Marketing Director, Richard Gueterbock, who says the rapidly increasing sense of ‘climate change emergency’ makes the company’s technologies more relevant and essential than ever, with enhanced resource efficiency and renewable energy now being championed across Europe, as well as pressures to reduce water footprint.
Water and energy efficiency imperatives
“With the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) raising concerns about global warming and calling for action to reduce the impact of greenhouse gas emissions, there is a change in attitudes towards resource efficiency and pressure to make manufacturing processes more sustainable,” Mr. Gueterbock comments.
“A more holistic approach to both energy supply and water management is being encouraged. This can significantly reduce both carbon emissions and water use. Residues from many production processes have a latent energy and water content. Traditional, often wasteful disposal methods can be replaced with a more circular approach, where the value of residues is recognized as part of their redeployment,” says Mr. Gueterbock.
Specialist water and waste treatments
“With concerns about long-term water supplies, industry is expected to curtail its water footprint and use process water more sustainably. The re-use of treated wastewater, minimizing waste generation and creating value from process residues that would previously have been discarded requires specialist and cost-effective technologies and expertise. The pharmaceutical sector must meet resource efficiency expectations, including on-site water recovery and clean-up for re-use to meet its exacting water quality needs,” he points out.
Alongside its own advanced aerobic and anaerobic solutions that can generate energy from industrial effluents and residues, the Clearfleau stand will also showcase the wide portfolio of EnviroChemie solutions for industrial water purification and wastewater treatment.
These include advanced oxidation processes for more complex requirements, such as Advanced Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) destruction and hard COD removal, inactivation plants to treat biologically active wastewater, modular water recycling and re-use systems and a range of customized biological treatment processes.
“Our modular systems can facilitate purification and recycling and re-use water consumed on smaller factory sites. With industry being expected to deploy resources more efficiently, the pharma sector should be including water treatment and re-use in its efforts to future-proof manufacturing sites,” says Mr. Gueterbock.
Clearfleau is a British effluent treatment technology supplier and leading provider of on-site biogas plants for the food and beverage processing sector.
