Water and purged through tertiary treatment system allow irrigation for farmers in Sangonera la Seca and right Reguerón coastal runway.
Sewer Mayor Joaquin Buendia, along with the Town Planning, Construction and Services, Laura Sandoval visited yesterday morning in the premises of the industrial water treatment Sewer (WWTP) located in the area of â€‹â€‹Los Regajos , next to the bed and get to know Reguerón treatment systems that occur in the same, where highlights from February 2011, which has the same tertiary treatment system at the wastewater treatment plant for our municipality, with the latest technologies in water treatment.
On arrival at the same they received Jesus Miguel Artero Garcia ESAMUR Manager (Regional Entity of Sanitation and Wastewater Treatment of Murcia) and the Responsible exploitation of Zone II ESAMUR, Carlos Lardín Mitsuf, Director entity who manages it, who gave them to understand the functioning of the same.
Currently the plant is designed to reuse 13,000 cubic meters of water a day, targeting it to irrigate the fields in the districts of Sangonera la Seca and coastal on the right bank of the river Guadalentín or Sangonera, in particular, Community Irrigation Tajo-Segura of Sangonera la Seca waters some 3,637 gross hectares of irrigated area and has a maximum annual volume of 255,250 cubic meters of water a year.
The plant is designed to reuse 13,000 cubic meters of water per day to meet the needs of a population of over 150,000 inhabitants.
Buendia recognized the importance of the municipalities of the Region of Murcia, especially ours, is provided with sludge as this that uses the latest technologies, treatment systems that allows us to have a completely clean and free water from any type of pathogen and bacteria, which makes possible direct reuse in agriculture, even surpassing the European guidelines for water quality by eliminating as well have been informed, 97 percent of the pollution load, compared to 75 percent EU demands ".
For the Mayor, "after the construction and opening in 2001 of a new wastewater treatment plant for Sewer, according to the needs of our neighbors, it came in 2011 the innovative operation of this third cycle of purification, extending well the benefits that we had previously, highlighting the great effort of the Autonomous Community of the Region of Murcia to be citizens of the region connected to such modern and effective purification. This is a further demonstration of our concern for the environment , by the efforts of our region, not only to save more water, but also to make a good reuse of the same ".
Our industrial water treatment - WWTP mission in its tertiary, giving an advanced effluent treatment from current, which involves the removal of suspended solids and residual organic matter, and finally disinfection by ultraviolet irradiation with a rolling tank 2,200 cubic meters capacity, pumping water tertiary treatment from the buffer reservoir to the mixing chamber and coagulation two lamellar decanters with extraction and pumping of sludge, filter backwash water and air, and effluent disinfection with UV in closed pipe.
Also highlights our WWTP, nationwide, for its innovations, if we consider that during the wastewater treatment sludge or sludge that generate a usable biogas is produced, we have there been quick and we have been pioneers in implementing and be reference Codigestion with sludge to improve production capacity increasing power thereof, using the biogas generated.
During this process, in the absence of oxygen one biogas rich in methane and high calorific value it is generated.
This gas can be used as fuel for engines with an electric generator coupled energy.
It is sustainable auto plant from an energy point of view and be able to be self-sufficient without consuming power grid, getting virtually reuse up to 70% of the energy it consumes.
Therefore, in 2013, a project developed by Acciona Agua in our industrial water treatment, able to be honored at the awards Five Days, with business innovation award 2013 in the field of new technologies, the project of the first energy self-sufficient thanks to the combined reuse of organic industrial waste and sewage sludge treatment plant.
When considering the jury novelty of a project involving economic savings and environmental benefits for each environment.
