Aqwise unveils its latest innovative developments and comprehensive portfolio of Integrated Solutions at IFAT Munich 2010


Aqwise is a world leader in the development and implementation of innovative water and wastewater treatment solutions for diverse industrial and municipal markets. Aqwise’s comprehensive solutions’ portfolio is designed to increase BOD and nutrient removal capacity in wastewater treatment facilities and offer enhanced utilization of existing plants as well as unique efficiencies in the implementation of new ones.


Aqwise utilizes the AGAR® (Attached Growth Airlift Reactor) technology in various configurations, such as MBBR (Moving Bed Bio Reactor) and IFAS (Integrated Fixed Film Activated Sludge), as well as offering custom-made integrated solutions for Solids-Separation, Sludge Dewatering, Package Plants and more.



As a leading provider of biological processes, Aqwise will be presenting its latest developments, as well as integrated solutions for comprehensive water and wastewater treatment. Aqwise’s robust offering made of innovative proprietary technologies as well as cooperation with partners World Water Works (USA) and AquaExplorer (The Netherlands).


Industrial Wastewater Treatment by the Dynamic ANaerobic & Aerobic (DANA) solution.

The DANA solution combines anaerobic and aerobic biological processes into one in-line process.

The DANA system produces a high quality effluent at comparatively low operational costs, while avoiding the need for two parallel biological systems that would otherwise necessitate a significantly larger footprint installation and operational complexity. The DANA system is a perfect solution for industrial applications in sectors such as Food & Beverage, Pulp & Paper and other industrial plants processing high organic loads.

The system can either replace or upgrade existing treatment facilities, resulting in less sludge disposal and efficient biogas production for energy recovery. 

The DANA solution was developed jointly with AquaExplorer ( in the framework of the Eureka R&D funding and support program.

The innovative DANA solution was developed by two seasoned R&D teams, bringing years of experience in anaerobic, aerobic and biofilm processes. The DANA solution presents a novel approach with diverse operational benefits.


Solids Separation by the powerful MBBR & DAF combination

The combination of DAF (Dissolved Air Flotation) and MBBR is an extremely powerful one for high load industrial applications, where available space is limited: while the DAF is extremely efficient at physically removing particulate material out of the wastewater stream, MBBR is extremely efficient at biologically removing dissolved pollutants. Combining the two technologies presents a very compact, highly efficient system which addresses all the major pollutants in the wastewater – both particulate and soluble.


Sludge Dewatering by the Aqwise Sludge Press (ASP)

The compact ASP dewatering unit offers a simple, economical alternative to existing dewatering systems. It is based upon an innovative, simple, field-proven approach to sludge dewatering, utilizing a fully automated continuous batch treatment system.

The ASP dewatering system is a perfect solution for small to medium WWTPs and most industrial applications.


Aqwise Package Plants

Aqwise offers various Package Plant configurations to address diverse client needs, using either pre-fabricated elements or fully containerized units. A standard freight container may enclose a complete

wastewater treatment plant for sanitary wastewater flows of up to 200 m3/day. The unit can produce effluent quality to meet all environmental discharge requirements both in terms of BOD and Total Nitrogen requirements. The plant is fully automated, the processes are inherently simple, leading to only minimal operator intervention required. This unit is specifically useful for hotels & resorts in remote and secluded areas, marine Oil & Gas platforms, mining facilities, small or remote communities, industrial parks, business parks and rest areas.
