EnviModul, the newly developed, flexible plant concept by EnviroChemie has been well received by clients. This spring, two plants for process water and wastewater accumulating during power generation can be delivered to Africa and Pakistan. The delivery is carried out by a well-known German company for major plant engineering. The modular plants generate process water as boiler feed water and strip the wastewater accumulating during decentralised power generation of mineral oils and heavy metals. The procedures of this plant are based on our Split-O-Mat separating plants, Lugan dissolved air flotation technology as well as Envopur membrane separation technology. The plants are fully manufactured in our facilities in Rossdorf and Westerburg and are inspected by the client before being accepted.
A treatment and recycling plant for process water from the cosmetics industry was commissioned in Shanghai in March. The EnviModul plant consists of five big individual modules and includes a physico-chemical stage, a biological stage and a membrane processing stage based on our Biomar, Flomar and Envopur process technology. All technical plant components were integrated in climate-controlled modules and set up in Shanghai after in-house testing. The module plant also includes a module for the entire process control as well as a small on-site laboratory. Based on EnviroChemie specifications, the client provides large containers for wastewater collection and aeration. The plant can process 10,000 to 20,000 litres per hour. After comprehensive cleaning, part of the treated wastewater is reused for operational purposes. Additional plants will be delivered to Saudi Arabia, India and Russia in the next several months.
After good business year 2011, EnviroChemie to start into 2012 successfully
Gottlieb Hupfer, CEO at EnviroChemie, relays the successes of the 2011 business years to employees and associates. Thanks to a satisfactory number of incoming orders in almost all areas, the overall performance increased up to 75 million Euros. The number of employees in the group, which are made up primarily of engineers and water specialists, rose to 330 staff members. The profits are on target as well. Traditionally, EnviroChemie does not publish exact numbers. The Russian market, which has been important for EnviroChemie, strengthened significantly in 2011. The European and Western European markets and exports overseas also did well. Business increased particularly for compact systems and the new modular plant system EnviModul.
The decline in solar cell production weakened sales for water technology in the solar energy sector significantly. However, orders for water and wastewater treatment plants in the surface technology, glass and automotive sectors were able to make up for it quite well. Engineer capacities at the company's main location, Rossdorf, were increased in order to successfully meet new challenges in modular and decentralised technologies. Investments in the fields of Electrical Engineering, Control and Programming allow all water and wastewater treatment plants to be equipped with control programs developed in house. The Westerburg location was equipped with a mechanised control cabinet manufacturing area.
At the beginning of 2012, the company secured orders from the meat industry in Russia and the cosmetics industry in Brazil. In addition to further developing the EnviModul decentralised water and wastewater technology, the strategic focus for the year 2012 is on the further development of services and on expanding the product portfolio for ecological and economically sensible water chemistry products.
