Water treatment using Membrane Ultra pure water

Using membranes to carry out desalination for the production of drinking water or process water that allow the development of intensive economic activities in the consumption of this resource.
Concentration of ions of interest, removal of contaminants and other alternatives for the generation of high quality process water or ultra pure water.
Containerized systems are developed that allow the delivery of water quality according to the project specification.

Process and acid mine water treatment

Treatment of mine water which is generated mainly in underground operations as a result of the drainage of rainwater, snowmelt and groundwater, which when passing through the rocks and mining activities, obtain a high content of metals, sulfates and acidity variations that considerably affect discharges to lakes, rivers and others.
A specified water quality is obtained and a solid waste to be disposed of.

Waste water treatment and ReUse

With consolidated experience in design and installation of conventional activated sludge plants, extended aeration, MBR, MBBR and anaerobic treatments, among other biological systems. Primary treatment systems, odor treatment, dehydration, conditioning, stabilization and drying of sludge complete the process line of these plants.
Developing systems for the reuse of treated water, we implement pilots and evaluations.

News & Innovations

Ultra pure water generation from brine waste from Reverse Osmosis
ECOPRENEUR developed a Treatment System whose objective was the Recovery and Reuse of Water from the rejection brine of a Reverse Osmosis Plant. The quality of this rejection had a conductivity of 16,000 uS/cm, 120 NTU of turbidity, 1800 mg/L of total hardness and a content of 100 mg/L of reactive silica and this should be brought to a value of less than 50 uS/ cm as Ultra Pure Water, which would be used for the production processes of Lithium Salts of SQM La Negra. The scope of the contract consisted of the development of detailed engineering, Supply, Construction, Assembly and Commissioning of the system, with the challenge of recovering the maximum flow of water from the 600 m3/d available and which were disposed of in a pond with other rejects. The treatment plant was designed to be containerized and quickly assembled on site for an average hourly flow of 25 m3/h. The process considered several stages of treatment, considering UF, Filters, Osmosis and other systems designed by ECOPRENEUR to generate a solid system with high treatment availability that will achieve the agreed objectives.
