Did you know: RheoScan, our automated optical polymer measurement and dosage system, helped one wastewater plant to achieve 34% lower polymer consumption in the belt thickener alone, and more than 10% increase in annual biogas production.

When it comes to sustainable wastewater treatment, one plant in Ljubljana, Slovenia, is truly leading the way. By installing RheoScan, an automated optical polymer measurement and dosage system, the plant managed to boost digester performance while dramatically cutting polymer costs.

The results? Nearly 34% fewer polymers used in the belt thickener, 16% fewer polymers in the decanter, and a more than 10% increase in annual biogas production – an investment that paid for itself in just a few months.
