Grupo Vento, in its commitment to the concepts of Circular Economy and Environmental Sustainability, but without forgetting at any time the maximization of the profitability of the industrial process, has promoted and implemented in its projects in recent years with regard to Management environmental, the MINIMIZATION of the discharges generated in the industrial process.
Minimization consists of the application of technology to the industrial effluents generated, with the fundamental objective of reducing their volume significantly.
At Grupo Vento we have our own technology –based mainly on Vacuum Evaporation- manufactured according to specific needs; as well as the necessary experience, to analyze each industrial process specifically so that we can study the technical-economic feasibility of the implementation of the Minimization concept in its industrial effluents. Our analysis will allow to know if your company will be able to enjoy benefits such as:
– Significant reduction in the volume of waste dumped, and thus less environmental impact of its activity. When the management of said waste externally involves a high cost, it is possible to obtain an economic benefit to consider.
– Reuse of valuable resources within your process or externally. With minimization, a significant volume of water suitable for discharge is generated, but it can also be reused in other processes. With this, water consumption is drastically reduced, in line with the new trend towards the Circular Economy. Likewise, it implies a saving in the water consumed.
– On many occasions, the process makes it possible to recover by-products of the process (either from the concentrate or through the separation of volatile components). These by-products can be of value for reuse within the process or for external economic recovery.
The customer can obtain a solution that is more environmentally sustainable, safe and with which they can also obtain an economic return and therefore a return on investment. In addition, on many occasions, the water treatment alternatives, with respect to the proposal of minimization by Vacuum Evaporation, are not viable. Mainly due to the type of wastewater to be treated. In this sense, they are usually waters with a high conductivity and / or non-biodegradable organic load and / or a series of substances that are difficult to eliminate.
Regarding the type of “suitable” effluents, they usually come from other treatment processes, such as reverse osmosis rejection; or they can also come from the process itself, such as almond peeling water, chemical reactor washing waters, galvanic baths, graphic arts waste, landfill leachate, etc.
The characterization of the effluents and the feasibility study of the projects we cover is not always easy. To help us in this task, at INDETEC – GRUPO VENTO, in addition to our Engineering department, we have an R + D + i department that tests working conditions in its laboratories, as well as a pilot Evaporation plant, which carries the test previously carried out on an industrial scale.
