The solution

The wastewater solution is executed with Nijhuis coarse screening and Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) units and will remove the large particles from the wastewater prior to entering the Organica FCR. After the secondary treatment through the FCR, Nijhuis CarboPure and UV disinfection units will polish the effluent to the stringent Russian discharge requirements. The excess sludge will be treated with a Nijhuis Drum Filter (NDF) and Nijhuis Screw Press (NSP).

The Organica FCR, with odorless operation and beautiful flora , is situated in a glass house and ensures the seamless integration of the treatment facility in the urban area within the mall complex, including a botanic garden visitors center.
