In the production of crude oil the produced water plays a more and more important role in terms of ecology.
In the secondary recovery stage of an oil reservoir, process water plays a central role, just as in the extraction of natural gas. After the oil exploration, the produced water must be separated from the oil and gas. The process water needs to be prepared in order to be re-injected into the water cycle of production. For this purpose, highly efficient separation methods are required.
Airport operations lead to many different types of wastewater for example through general airport, hangar and logistics operations as well as refuelling and cleaning of the aircrafts. The effluent from the runways is contaminated with oils, lubricants, detergents and other chemicals.
Facing the increasing oversea trade, the environmental protection of the oceans is becoming increasingly important.

The stored fuels, raw materials and resources of a country must not pollute the harbor water with their emissions in case of rain. Produced liquid...
Wastewater and process water treatment in the metal industry. Industrial waste water or circuit water in the metal industry can be broken down into many comprehensive, subject-specific areas. AWAS has developed various methods of treatment technology for the metal industry in the last 30 years. Generally we accept any environmental challenge and like to respond to individual problems.
After supreme purity law of water: In the food industry water of the highest quality is required. For filling of cans, bottles and other packaging only sterile water may be in use.
