Grundfos BioBooster introduces a new test site in Bjerringbro, Denmark. At the same time, two new full-scale units will be established for customers and other interested parties to see the purification unit working.
The closest neighbour is Bjerringbro purification plant which supplies the test unit with un-cleaned waste water. The waste water then passes through the unit while staff monitor the process.
- We chose to build the test site because we want to develop a world-class product for purifying waste water from municipalities and industries. In close to laboratory standards we test the newest technology, says Sales Director at BioBooster, Per Krøyer Kristensen.
The Membrane BioReactor, MBR, in particular ensures the treated water is sterile when it leaves the test site.
Grundfos BioBooster’s trademark is in fact higher water quality than an ordinary treatment unit can otherwise offer. Usually, a purification plant is established on the basis of construction work and mechanical and electric planning, tailored for each unit. The idea behind BioBooster is to make a standardised and compact product, manufactured at a factory. The compact size ensures the units may be produced and transported efficiently.
- We want to deliver clean water for the parts of the world where the purification of waste water is a big challenge, practically and economically, and where the purified water is to be recycled and used for environmental protection. The demand is increasing as we become more and more people on the earth who have to share the same amount of water, says Mr Krøyer Kristensen, explaining that this is why there are great sales perspectives in completely new markets. Most recently, Grundfos BioBooster has established a unit in Poland and is establishing another unit in Norway.
Two full-scale units
In addition to the test site, two units are being established these days, identical to the final product. Each unit can purify waste water from 500 inhabitants. With the new unit Grundfos BioBooster will get a unique opportunity to present the final product for customers and business partners.
- I look forward to presenting the two operational units for our customers so they may see how a high-technology and compact unit offers decentralised waste-water purification on economically and environmentally sustainable conditions, says Mr Krøyer Kristensen.
