Municipal wastewater treatment

We are pioneers in municipal and industrial wastewater treatment. Our urban or municipal wastewater treatment plants are amongst the largest on the African continent.

We design the most appropriate biological wastewater treatment systems producing clean water that can be discharged safely into the environment or reused for irrigation after a tertiary disinfection treatment step.
