Arenales – Elche

The use of MBR technologie supplied by Cadagua in the Arenales del Sol WWTP meant that part of the old treatment plant did not need to be touched, so that there was no interference with operations during construction, ensuring constant discharge quality at all times and preventing any negative impact on the environment. The process was modelled and simulated using the WEST platform and the results were used to explore its behavior under different operational modes.
