A2V is specialized in the design, construction, operating and commissioning of effluent treatment plants. Our design philosophy is based on using appropriate technology to reduce capital and minimise long term operating costs; maximise operational reliability and reduce environmental impact.
We offer a full range of services from turnkey contracting for small and large projects, to specialised services for the industrial and municipal markets. Our services include detailed operational training; operational/maintenance and emergency support.
Treatment plants vary in complexity and operational requirements. We have broad experience of the technologies available as well as the operational and maintenance issues associated with each. Their design is dependent on the regulating authority, current legislation, economic factors and the client’s personal preferences.
Where necessary, we can assist with the requisite planning processes including statutory license applications and Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA’s). We have developed a good working relationship with the Department of Water Affairs (DWA) and the Western Cape Department of the Environmental Affairs and Development Planning (DEA&DP) as well as a selective network of specialist consultants that we work with to plan projects and obtain approvals.
Please contact us for advice on any of your effluent treatment issues.
Waste water from wine cellars tends to be low in pH and nutrients with a highly variable organic load. The objective is usually to treat water to an acceptable standard for discharge into a river or Municipal sewer.
We have a broad experience in treatment of winery effluent and have successfully implemented a number of plants using a combination of the following technologies:
Our clients include Klein Constanti, L’Ormarins, Mont Rochelle and Perdeberg to name but a few.
Industrial effluent comprises a wide range of pollutants and parameters. In many cases, the objective of treatment is to minimise the municipal surcharges, or to treat the effluent to an acceptable standard for re-use.
In our experience, the effluent treatment problem is often greatly improved by addressing the industrial processes and operating procedures upstream. Sludge and solids generated by the effluent treatment process and the costs associated with its disposal also need to be carefully considered, as well as other factors such as odor and operability.
We have assisted a number of companies in a variety of different industries:
- Fish processing
- Food processing
