Mapal Green Energy Floating Fine Bubble Aeration system (FFBA), used widely in both industrial and utility water purification works around the world, including by companies such as Thames Water, has proved its worth again, this time at a detergent intermediate and cleaning materials manufacturer in Israel.
Zohar Dalia is the country’s largest manufacturer of clearing products, generating significant quantities of wastewater each year. Following above average rainfall this year, the company found itself facing overfull reservoirs and a build-up of odour in the local atmosphere.
Using Mapal’s EDOS (Emergency Deployment Oxidation System), the company was able to overcome the short term air quality problem, while the reservoir was allowed to drain back to a more stable level.
Commenting on the project, Ori Bar, Manager of Industrial & Environmental Services, Zohar Dalia
Said, “Due to particularly heavy rainfall, we could not drain our reservoir quickly enough and as a result we had a serious odour problem because of standing water. Installing Mapal”s system solved the problem and eliminated the odours. We are extremely pleased with the solution and services provided by Mapal”
Zeev Fisher, Mapal CEO added, “Our EDIOS system is designed for just such instances – a short term environmental emergency, where a quick, economic and effective solution is needed to protect against lasting and more serious damage to the local environment.”
Deployed in waste water treatment plants, Mapal”s Floating Fine Bubble Aeration (FFBA) system, which is at the heart of the EDOS package, approaches the challenge of water oxygenation by marrying the strengths of surface aeration technology – easy to install and accessible for maintenance – with the efficiency which is derived from sub surface fine bubble aeration systems.
Mapal FFBA technology is currently used in the UK by Thames Water, the UK’s biggest water company, United Utilities and Anglian Water and in industry by companies in the pulp and paper and food manufacturing sectors.
