Sanitation companies are confronted with several issues concerning their wastewater management. Indeed, for septic tank or sewer emptying and cleaning, these sanitation specialists recover large amounts of wastewater with their tanker trucks, which must be emptied before subsequent sanitation operations. This water with high organic load can only be discharged into municipal wastewater treatment plant. This results in various constraints in terms of costs and logistics.
To address this issue, Epuramat designed a new treatment solution for wastewater from septic tank emptying, which allows these sanitation experts to treat their wastewater on their own site. This innovative and efficient system provides treated water which can be reused for sanitation operations (such as cleaning) or directly discharged into the municipal sewage system, or even into surface water (depending on local conditions). Sanitation companies can thus make significant cost savings in their fresh water withdrawing, in the wastewater transport to the municipal wastewater treatment plant, as well as in disposal related taxes. Beyond these financial issues, this solution offers above all user-friendliness to sanitation companies, allowing them to optimize their truck fleet management, and finally to increase efficiency and flexibility in their activities.
The Epuramat’s Box4Water system designed specifically for this application is a mobile and compact solution which consists of two 20 ft. containers. The first module is a primary treatment system for wastewater from septic tank emptying. The second one, placed downstream this pre-treatment, is a biological treatment unit providing a high-quality effluent, in compliance with European regulations for wastewater discharge.
This complete system is quickly operational and fully autonomous. All the parameters can be remotely controlled and monitored. The users can thus benefit from an optimal follow-up of configurations, performances, consumption, costs...
