se-success-story-otv-france
ANDRITZ Aqua-Guard in a revolutionary plant for OTV France

Europe’s first geothermal power plant that uses seawater for heating and cooling is using improved screening technology from ANDRITZ SEPARATION.

se-success-story-brantner
High-quality separation technology in urban mining for BRANTNER ENVIRONMENT GROUP

The Brantner Environment Group GmbH is a waste management company headquartered in Austria and operating in Central and Eastern Europe. It runs the first plant in Europe to use a special process in order

to improve the results of the recycling process by maximizing the recovery rate of valuable materials and minimizing/eliminating the amount of remaining waste.

se-success-story-arabern
Fluidized bed drying system at ARA REGION BERN AG, Berne, Switzerland

Already a leader in environmental sustainability, ara region bern ag (arabern) in Switzerland had an ambitious plan to produce renewable energy. Their plant has used digestion gas for heating processes in the wastewater treatment plant. But a new concept would take the plant’s energy efficiency and environmental sustainability to the next level.

se-success-story-wastewater-treatment-arla-en
Industrial wastewater treatment at ARLA FOODS, Denmark

In 2009, arla foods in Videbaek, denmark, realized that their current methods of sludge dewatering were unsustainable. a sound financial and strategic decision was made by arla foods to invest in a better dewatering solution to handle the large volume of wastewater coming from the company’s milk and cheese production.

se-success-story-wastewater-treatment-riverfox
Membrane filter presses at LOWER FOX RIVER, USA

Environmental remediation is always an ambitious task. And the case of the Lower Fox River remediation project in Wisconsin is no exception. To reduce risk to both human health and the environment, the project aims to remediate PCB-impacted sediments from a 21.4-km stretch of river through dredging, capping, sand separation, sediment dewatering, water treatment, and disposal.

se-success-story-censor
CENSOR decanter upgrade at multiple sites

Recyclers of post-consumer and postindustrial plastic materials rely heavily on decanter centrifuges. But the processing of shredded plastics into several fractions is not always a simple task. Excessive or varying feed rates can lead to regular blockages. And a blocked feeding system must then be stopped, flushed, and cleaned. All of which leads to significant production losses and additional manpower requirements.

se-success-story-dcp-netherlands
Production of animal proteins at DCP INGREDIENTS, Netherlands

DCP Ingredients is an international producer and marketer of highly functional collagen proteins for the food industry. In the production of animal proteins, the last process step consists of drying viscous material. Hence, the customer was looking for a solution that could turn a very pasty product into dried powder.

se-success-story-coal-dewatering--mongolia
Dewatering coal tailings at KHAA KHUDAG COAL MINE, Mongolia

The Ukhaa Khudag coal mine lies in the heart of one of the harshest climate zones on earth: the southern Gobi desert. In the winter, its pipelines and coal tailings dam would freeze. In the summer, much of its water would evaporate. Faced with these extreme conditions, the mine needed the most robust equipment available to separate water from its tailings for reuse in the coal handling process.

se-success-story-frp-casing-lubrizol
New FRP-casing for a decanter centrifuge at LUBRIZOL ADVANCED MATERIALS RESIN B.V.

lubrizol, a highly advanced chemicals manufacturer, was experiencing severe corrosion in the case of one of its decanter centrifuges. in theory, the centrifuge’s titanium grade 2 case and rotating assembly should have been able to withstand the hydrochloric acid that passed through the centrifuge.

se-success-story-wastewater-treatment-steyr-en
D-series decanter for sludge dewatering at RHV STEYR, Austria

RHV Steyr, a community environmental association serving the city of Steyr (Austria) and several neighboring villages, enlarged and modernized its sewage treatment facility to cope with the ever increasing requirements of more stringent legislation in the face of rising effluent levels and thus, increasing amounts of sludge.

se-success-story-process-optimization-rheoscan-slovenia
Process optimization with RheoScan at a wastewater treatment plan in Ljubljana, Slovenia

In Ljubljana, Slovenia, one particular customer in the wastewater industry has continuously sought to improve efficiency. That is why the plant owner tested our RheoScan, an automated, optical polymer measurement and dosage system at the belt thickening stage to reduce polymer consumption and enhance digester performance, in 2014.

se-success-story-wastewater-treatment-flatcher-austria
Industrial wastewater treatment for FLATSCHER in Unken, Austria

With no wastewater treatment system in place, FLATSCHER ERDBAU & SCHOTTERWERK Ges.m.b.H faced a number of challenges that were threatening the company’s business.

se-success-story-potash-belaruskali
Potash dewatering at BELARUSKALI, Belarus

At many mining refineries, the overall aim in dewatering is simple: to profitably produce huge total volumes with easy handling and minimal maintenance. Equipped mainly with thickeners and flow-operated vacuum filters, it is a continuous process with little room for improvements that boost margins.

se-success-story-olive-oil-aceitunas
Recovering valuable oil at ACEITUNAS GUADALQUIVIR, Seville, Spain

Aceitunas Guadalquivir, located in Seville, Spain, and founded in 1962 by Francisco Escalante Rivera, is one of the five largest olive processing companies in the world.

se-success-story-dcf-toso
Dynamic crossflow filtration for wine at TOSO S.P.A., Italy

When it comes to clarification of wine, the overall challenge independent of the business size is always the same: to profitably filter and recover wine, with easy handling and minimal need of maintenance.

se-success-story-drying-swindon
Drying solution for producing SRF (solid recovered fuel) from municipal solid waste at SWINDON COMMERCIAL SERVICES, UK

For the community of Swindon in England, an investment in a state-of-the-art municipal solid waste plant was a major commitment for the future.
