One of the key processes for improving water quality is aeration. When waste water is purified in sewage farms, water aeration is required to enable the bacteria which consume the particles in suspension to thrive. Current aeration technology is slow, inefficient, very power consuming and generates unpleasant odours. Electricity is critical for municipal wastewater services, and today about 1% of the EU electricity demand is consumed by wastewater treatment plants. Electricity costs are usually between 5% to 30% of total operating costs among wastewater utilities worldwide.
UFine is an extremely efficient technology, consuming organic waste up to 9 times faster than traditional aeration methods and allowing over 80% reduction in energy consumption. It also achieves a remarkable oxygen transfer rate of beyond 90%. It targets industrial wastewater treatment plants.
