Thermax is commissioning a sewage treatment facility (STP) for Greater Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation in Andhra Pradesh. Its system using the patented Fluidised Aerobic Bio-Reactor (FAB) technology would treat seven million litres of sewage per day. FAB is a better alternative to conventional waste water treatment systems that are power intensive and require constant monitoring. It needs only 1/5th the space of a conventional activated sludge process and is energy efficient.
Civic administration in various regions uses Thermax expertise to ease the pressure that growing cities exert on available water resources. Thermax has already commissioned sewage treatment projects for various municipal corporations like UP Jal Nigam, Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation, Maharashtra and Kukatpally Municipality, Andhra Pradesh, among others. Having commissioned over 350 STPs of varying capacities, Thermax, today, is the largest supplier of sewage treatment plants in India
Thermax also offers a basket of technologies for treating sewage which include - sequencing bio reactor (SBR), membrane bio reactor (MBR), small capacity STPs, physico-chemical treatment, etc.
