DUBAI, United Arab Emirates- Aquatech, a global leader in water purification technology for industrial and infrastructure markets, has received the H2O Water Award for the Best Waste Water Project. H2O Water Awards celebrate the outstanding achievements of the Middle East & North Africa (MENA) water industry and recognize projects, programs as well as products and solutions that have contributed to the advancement of the region's water industry.

The awards program is organized by CPI Sustainability, a part of Dubai-based Corporate Publishing International (CPI). All projects, programs, products and solutions are expected to demonstrate a high standard of excellence and quality and promote sustainability.

Aquatech received the award for its work with EQUATE Petrochemical Company in Kuwait. A pioneer in wastewater recycle/reuse in the oil & gas and petrochemicals industry, Aquatech developed and successfully piloted an innovative solution for EQUATE as part of one of the Middle East's first full-scale wastewater recycle projects for such a facility.

The goal of the project, which is part of the EQUATE Green Initiative, is to reduce water consumption and decrease the carbon emissions associated with purifying water by recycling and reusing treated wastewater for internal use in process requirements to the maximum possible extent.

"We are honored to receive this prestigious award. For more than 30 years, Aquatech has been dedicated to bringing our customers valuable solutions to meet their water and environmental needs. It is indeed gratifying to leverage our work in wastewater recycle/reuse in the oil & gas and petrochemicals industry to support the aims of the EQUATE Green Initiative," said Vikrant Sarin, Manager of Business Development for Aquatech.

For this project, Aquatech designed an innovative scheme to achieve maximum recovery of high quality water from the plant's process wastewater stream. This recycle system combines state-of-the-art membrane-based technologies to remove suspended, biological, and inorganic impurities from the treated wastewater to make it fit for use in the process. It is designed to accommodate a wide range of operating parameters such as flow, TDS and temperature without affecting the final treated water quality.

The performance of the scheme was demonstrated by pilot studies conducted by Aquatech on the actual effluent at the EQUATE site. Aquatech's system met the main criteria set by EQUATE for acceptance of their solution, by achieving the required stringent water quality parameters and exceeding the desired overall recovery requirement.
