The Requirements
Potable water for human consumption has to comply with high standards regarding its chemistry, physics and hygiene.

These standards do not differ much from each other. In general, all define that potable water must be:

Public water suppliers e.g. villages, communities or cities as well as private water suppliers e.g. hotels or industries have to ensure their potable water supply is complying with these attributes.

Unfortunately, natural water resources like groundwater or water originating from lakes, rivers or seas rarely comply with these attributes. As a result, it is necessary to treat these waters should they be considered for potable water supply. The main treatment methods, among others, are:

Depending on the specific requirements we combine these methods in the optimum way to offer to our customers the best solution possible for potable water treatment, both technologically and economically.
