With rising energy costs, more rigorous discharge requirements, and stricter air emission limits, the total costs of wastewater and residuals management continues to rise and constitutes an increasingly substantial part of the overall production costs of many industries. All of those factors contribute to the need to implement effective and affordable waste and wastewater treatment systems.
Over the last 25 years, GWE has developed a wide range of advanced anaerobic, aerobic and physical-chemical treatment technologies for a variety of different industries with high-strength or difficult-to-treat wastewaters.
If you need a turn-key facility that will achieve outstanding treatment efficiencies, a GWE anaerobic system will provide you with a major economic advantage when compared to aerobic treatment.
Application of the biological aerobic treatment is nowadays mostly diluted industrial wastewaters and municipal applications, and as a polishing step after anaerobic treatment. Our portfolio of technologies also includes a variety of different aerobic treatment systems. This way we are able to offer you a complete range of wastewater treatment solutions able to meet any discharge requirements.
With thirteen (13) different configurations and concepts we have one of the most extensive portfolios of anaerobic technologies of any vendors. Our ANUBIX™ reactor family of Upflow Anaerobic Sludge Blanket (UASB) reactors has been applied in the installations around the world, typically used for wastewaters from breweries, beverage production, sugar mills, starch factories, paper mills, and many other industries.
Biological treatment is not always the best, or at least not complete, solution to all industrial wastewater applications. The wide range of possible impurities in industrial wastewater streams sometimes requires the employment of several physical-chemical treatment steps to remove the contaminants to a level that will allow for the discharge or reuse of the wastewater.
