Replacement of Existing Treatment Plant

H+E, one of the leading international providers of industrial process and wastewater treatment solutions, has been awarded a contract to refurbish an existing Sugar Wastewater Treatment Plant in Scandinavia.

The existing wastewater ponds have the disadvantage of both consuming large amounts of energy and not meeting the necessary treated wastewater quality requirements. Therefore the client decided to replace the essentially redundant equipment with up-to-date technology.

H+E’s Expertise

Sugar Wastewater Treatment is not straightforward. However H+E has extensive experience in this market. It has been a leading provider of wastewater treatment systems for the companies throughout the sugar industry for many years. Our unique technology and energy-efficient solutions was developed to meet the specific demands of the sugar industry. This was the main factor in the Client’s decision to choose H+E.

Our aerobic BIOFIT®.N process uses combined denitrification and nitrification stages to safely and efficiently remove nitrogen. This compact solution has been proved many times in the sugar industry to be a reliable and highly efficient method for treating wastewater. It uses a particular type of fine bubble membrane aeration of the activated sludge basin. This results in a substantial reduction of energy consumption, and therefore leads to a rapid return on investment for the client. But also, it can be easily integrated with the existing equipment, which again, reduces a total investment costs. BIOFIT®.N is one of a family of BIOFIT processes.

The aerobic BIOFIT®.N system will start operation right on schedule for the 2017/2018 campaign.

H+E has also developed the two-stage ANAFIT-CS system. This is particularly suited to wastewater with a high calcium concentration, which is normal in the sugar industry. It avoids operational problems which are often caused by calcium carbonate clogging, commonly seen in other treatment processes. This means that ANAFIT-CS operates reliably and dependably,
