The Challenge

On its industrial site at Roztoky, VUAB Pharma operates a 350 m3/d wastewater treatment plant not too far from the municipal wastewater treatment plant. Treatment systems of both plants had to be improved and modernised to comply with the environmental standards.

 

Veolia's Solution

VUAB Pharma and the city of Roztoky took Veolia Water on for the optimisation and management of the combined industrial and municipal wastewater treatment systems.

Veolia Water’s scope of services includes the following steps :

  • Anaerobic pretreatment of industrial wastewater streams on the VUAB Pharma site and use of biogas for steam production in one of the VUAB Pharma boiler rooms.
  • Industrial pretreated wastewater and municipal wastewater are mixed and treated by nitrification/denitrification at the municipal wastewater treatment plant at Roztoky.

The sludge from the municipal wastewater treatment plant is transferred to the VUAB Pharma plant for centrifugation and composting.
