Efficiency in waste water treatment

Since April 1994, the company waste water at the Mertingen site has been cleaned physically, microbiologically and chemically by a waste water treatment plant. Over the years the plant has been systematically updated and in 2004 expanded to include cutting-edge expertise. For years, we have been undercutting the legally required discharge limits considerably.

COD = Chemical Oxygen Demand as an indicator of the polluting loads (mg | l)

TNC = Total Nitrogen Content (mg | l)

TPC = Total Phosphorus Content (mg | l)
