World Water Day 2020: Water and climate change

on 11/03/2020 No comments

Since 1993, World Water Day has been celebrated every year on 22 March. World Water Day 2020 focuses on water and climate change, and on the close link between the two issues. The campaign shows that, depending on our use of water, we can reduce floods and droughts, combat the scarcity of that resource and its pollution, and at the same time help combat climate change itself.

This campaign contains three key messages:

We can’t afford to wait. Water should be a priority in climate action plans.

Water, a resource against climate change. Sustainable, affordable and adaptable solutions in water and sanitation.

We can all be an active part. In our daily lives, various surprisingly simple actions allow us to fight climate change.

It is incredible how many water-related actions anyone can implement anywhere to fight climate change. Some changes of habits that we can all put into practice today:

Take five-minute showers

More plant-based meals

Do not throw away food in good condition

Turning off electronic devices

Buy sustainably.

The aspiration to reach even the most vulnerable is becoming increasingly important, as environmental degradation, climate change, population growth and rapid urbanization, among other factors, intensify and pose considerable challenges for water safety.

However, water and sanitation can contribute significantly to the achievement of the comprehensive set of 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development objectives, ranging from food and energy security to economic development to sustainability Environmental.

Climate change largely serves to give a necessary impetus to the implementation of obvious reforms in the water sector.

Succesfull project, installation and commissioning of a WWTP in a dayri industry by Aguambiente

on 26/02/2019 No comments

WWTP Dayri industry 500 m3/day in Palencia (Spain).

The turnkey project is designed for the treatment of 500 m3 / day, although it has been dimensioned with a view to a future expansion of water treatment flow to 600 m3 / day.

The building which home the equipments has been built at two heights in laminated prefabricated panels, mainataining the aesthetics and archetexture to the factory.

The Wastewater treatment plant consists of a pretreatment with rotary screen, which will eliminate part of the solids 0.50 mm, W-Tank® homogenization tank from which the water is pumped to a physical-chemical treatment by dissolved air flotation technology. The process ends with a SBR biological treatment in W-Tank® to reduce the load to the permissible levels of dumping.

The management opted for this type of tanks for its simplicity and speed in assembly. Biological treatment was necessary to reduce the load to the permissible levels of discharge to the public channel.

The dissolved air flotation unit has capacity of 30 m3/ h. The sludge generated in this process of wastewater treatment will be dehydration by an Automatic Press Filter, with which the dryness increase, make easy its management.

After the start up of the treatment plant, Aguambiente’s maintenance team offers training sessions to the customer on “best practices for the operation of the WWTP”. The training is aimed at the personnel who will operate the plant in order to maximize performance and help reduce operating costs.

Aguambiente completes the installation and commissioning of a WWTP

The Wastewater treatment plant consists of a W-Tank® homogenization tank from which the water is pumped to a physical-chemical treatment by dissolved air flotation technology.

The dissolves air flotation unit has capacity of 30 m3 / h. The performance of this Anaconda® dissolved air flotation system is 93%.

The sludge generated in this treatment stage is stored in a W-Tank® sludge tank for deshydratio by centrifuge.

After the start up of the treatment plant, Aguambiente’s maintenance team offers training sessions to the customer on “best practices for the operation of the WWTP”. The training is aimed at the personnel who will operate the plant in order to maximize performance and help reduce operating costs.

A wastewater treatment plant is as efficient as its operators.

This project is a turnkey solution to treat waste water of the medicinal plants enterprise which is near of 500 m³/ day. In this way, the enterprise from Soria can discharge its waste water in the treatment plant of Garray (Soria) according with regulatory requirements.

The project consist in the design and installation of the waste water treatment plant in Soria Natural, managed totally by Aguambiente. It is a full project that includes all phases of water treatment: pretreatment, equalization, physico-chemical treatment by dissolved air flotation, biological treatment and settling in GRP tanks. Then, wastewater goes to Garray WWTP in conformity with local regulations. Furthermore, generated sludge are dewatered in a filter press to make easier the management.

World Water Day 2018: Nature-based solutions for water

on 22/03/2018 No comments

Every year, we celebrate the World Water Day on 22nd of March to focus on the importance of water as a fundamental component in sustainable development

“The answer is in nature” is the theme chosen for this year. How nature can help us overcome the rising challenges of XXI century. In previous years, themes were related to waste water (2017), employment (2016), sustainable development (2015) or energy (2014). However, in this edition it needs to raise awareness in order to take care of the ecosystems and the nature and how it can create synergies to contribute to Sustainable Development Goals of 2030.

This way, there are many aspects of sustainable development which can be improved by the union of nature and water: from ensuring food security and reducing disaster risk to building sustainable urban settlements and boosting decent work. Nevertheless, there is still a lot to do. In 21st century, more than 2 billion people lack access to safe drinking water and more than the double of that number lack access to safe sanitation

In addition, the demand for potable water is expected to increase more than 30% in 2050. Accelerated consumption patterns, environmental degradation and climate change reveal the need of a mentality change that involves all figures in the society.

The demographic growth that the planet is suffering is also reflected in world water demand’s increase. Both industrial and domestic demand have experienced an increase linked mainly to the growth of emerging countries. And this trend will continue raising at the same rate of their population growth and economic development.

At the same time, climate change is exacerbating environmental conditions in different climates. Drier regions will become more and more arid and wet regions also will turn into more wet places.

Nowadays, 1800 million people live in areas affected by desertification and it is expected that this phenomen will cause more than 135 millions of migrations. Current trend of inundations will continue growing too. Around 1200 million people who live in risk flood areas will become more than 1800 millions in next 30 years.

Fortunately, the attention given to Nature-based solutions has increased for last years. The introduction on these natural solutions in the field of legislation -specially in water resources-, food safety, agriculture, biodiversity, natural disaster risk reduction… has collaborated to be recognized from many sector. Goals the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development can lead the way to revers the current trend.
