The increase in treatment capacity of municipal wastewater treatment plants is becoming an essential need. Due to urbanization, population growth and new strict nutrient removal standards, water & utility companies around the world struggle to meet the required effluent limits. On countless occasions, there is a limited available area within the existing WWTP and long permitting procedures, which lead to high costs associated with new treatment units and civil works.
The key advantage of our AGAR® MBBR and AGAR® IFAS technologies is the ability to be implemented within the existing wastewater treatment basins with no need to construct new reactors. The addition of the Aqwise carriers to existing reactors results in a significant increase in the WWTP treatment capacity & nutrient removal efficiency.
Therefore, the AGAR® retrofit solutions are optimal for increasing WWTP capacity and efficiency in plants with limited availability of area and those that require short implementation time.
Over the years, Aqwise has conducted hundreds of retrofit projects in the municipal & industrial sectors for WWTP treating hundreds to several hundred thousand m3/d.
