Industrial wastewater treatment

Our specialists will devise the right solution for any waste stream – from production wastewater and liquid sludge to leachate and other liquid waste. Why would you incinerate aqueous waste when you can treat it safely and inexpensively? We can dispose of your wastewater efficiently and responsibly in one of Germany’s largest industrial wastewater treatment plants.

Our two-stage biological process with integrated denitrification can cleanly and efficiently treat any production wastewater you generate. To verify the biodegradability of your wastewater, we will analyze a representative sample before accepting the first shipment. We will also ask you about the process that generates the wastewater or aqueous waste. This guarantees that your wastewater will be disposed of safely without risk to human health or the environment. We accept wastewater through the local sewer system as well as deliveries by vacuum truck or road tanker. Any resulting sewage sludge is treated at our sewage sludge incineration plant.
