Water is a scarse element which is nevertheles used extensively in almost any industry and municipality around the world. Making sure used water or wastewater is treated before released into the environment again is therefore a key-process for every self-respecting company and authority. Principle The new 3rd generation UNITANK® is a very performing and modern wastewater treatment system based on widelyknown biological treatment processes:
UNITANK® multitrain - Brasilia municipality - Brazil.
