Treating the Untreatable.

Posted By GWE / April 6, 2016 /

Taking care of difficult to treat wastewater will soon be much easier for two sugar refineries in Indonesia. With its vast portfolio of treatment technologies and experience with an unparalleled list of industries and waste types, Global Water Engineering will be able to provide sugar refineries AF Sugar, in Jakarta, and MSI Sugar, in Medan, with complete treatment solutions for the highly concentrated wastewater, considered untreatable by some, that the refineries produce.

The wastewater must undergo a series of purification steps before the effluent can be safely discharged into the sea without affecting the local environment. With GWE’s highly energy-efficient, multi-stage evaporation system, followed by biological and physical-chemical polishing, both refineries will be able to consistently meet all effluent requirements. As a part of the new construction, the refineries wastewater treatment plants are also being upgraded to a higher capacity, with AF Sugar increasing to 73,000 m3/year and MSI to 102,000 m3/year. These turn-key projects will be completed and producing quality effluent in late 2016. Both wastewater treatment contracts were signed during the Belgian Economic Mission to Indonesia, led by HRH Princess Astrid of Belgium. To treat the untreatable – contact GWE!
