Featured Municipal Treatment Applications
Whenever possible, it's economically efficient and sustainable to treat wastewater locally and reclaim it for irrigation or return it to nearby lakes and rivers. A low-cost, decentralized system allows rural villages and small towns to treat sewage from homes and businesses near the source, rather than collecting, storing, and transporting it for treatment.
A quiet, odorless, concealed decentralized plant is the most sustainable solution for rural villages and small towns. Fluence offers innovative wastewater treatment solutions that are energy-efficient, robust and reliable, and that deliver a high-quality effluent. These solutions are cost-effective, easy to operate, and can be monitored remotely.
Effluent reuse for irrigation is a significant component of the integrated management of water resources. It replaces a portion of the water extracted from rivers and reduces the amount of pollutants discharged into our waterways.
Reusing treated wastewater ensures a reliable water source independent of seasonal drought and weather variability, and covers peaks in water demand. This continuous water supply lowers the risk of crop failure and lost income.
Nutrients in wastewater can be exploited to reduce the need for additional fertilizers, resulting in environmental benefits and savings for farmers, and a lower investment for further wastewater treatment.
For rural communities, decentralized treatment is:
- Quiet, odorless, and easily concealed
- Simply operated and remotely controlled
- An independent water resource for irrigation or reuse
Treating the wastewater in a decentralized treatment plant makes economic and ecologic sense. Fluence's MABR, a fully automated and odorless treatment solution, is a perfect fit for new developments. A local MABR treatment facility can turn wastewater into a new source of quality water suitable for irrigation.
Many residential developments wastefully use drinking water for landscaping, irrigation of parks and playgrounds, as well as for central heating and cooling systems.
A packaged plant can be installed to treat residential sewage for 500 to 5,000 families. It can operate for months with minimum supervision, saving on operational costs while supplying high-quality nonpotable water for landscaping and irrigation use.
- Savings on energy and water costs
- Savings on construction of water mains
- Compliance with treatment regulations
- Reduced environmental footprint
