Wastewater & Sludge

In the fields of municipal and industrial wastewater treatment, we offer our solutions and services for the following:

  • Aerobic processes for wastewater treatment like activated sludge, biofilm, membrane revitalisation or granular.
  • Aerobic processes for sludge stabilisation, e.g., integrated stabilisation and thickening
  • Anaerobic processes for sludge treatment (& stabilisation)
  • Anaerobic processes for wastewater treatment as high load processes (e.g., UASB, EGSB, IC)
  • Anaerobic municipal wastewater treatment
  • Wastewater disinfection
  • Phosphorous reduction in the water and sludge pathway
  • Mechanical pre-treatment
  • Physical processes (sedimentation, solids separation by screens, parallel plate separators, etc.)
  • Chemical precipitation processes
  • Membrane processes
  • Treatment of process water by
    • Degassing of wastewater for methane recovery
    • Degassing of sludge to recover methane, avoid precipitation in the sludge infrastructure and improve dewaterability.
  • GHG balancing
  • Conceptual solutions for GHG emission reduction
  • Dynamic simulation/modelling for planning and optimisation of wastewater treatment plants and processes
  • Energy analysis according to DWA A-216 for optimisation of energy consumption
  • Sludge dewatering
  • Computational verification of process engineering parameters (chemical, physical, biological treatment processes)
  • Mechanical engineering & EI&C
  • Research and implementation of innovative technologies
  • (Waste)water reuse in agriculture
  • Organisation and management of networks on urban water management issues
  • Explosion protection documents
  • Risk analyses according to the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC (CE conformity)
  • Concepts for operational optimisation
  • Development and conducting of training courses
  • Application for funding for field-related projects from federal and state programmes
