The construction market

Treatment of stormwater and process water in construction- and infrastructure projects is a critical factor to ensure environmental sustainability. Typical pollutions within a construction project include high amounts of suspended solids, metals, as well as elevated pH, which needs to be adjusted. Depending on site conditions, there can be many other crucial matters that also needs to be addressed and managed. The construction sector has been one of the first markets where compliance with the European water directive regulations has been implemented. In addition to effective water treatment, an additional important factor that should be addressed is to also minimize the need of external fresh water that is used throughout a construction project.

Swedish Hydro Solutions offers high-quality technologies, knowledge, and user-friendly and safe equipment for effective water treatment. The treatment is typically based around the biodegradable high-quality chitosan flocculent, with the possibility to reuse the treated water within a project.

The water treatment technology is fantastic! I'm highly impressed with the removal of chromium VI and total chromium. It's precisely this type of solution we want to work with, where we can treat process water without the need to add hazardous chemicals.

The solution for your market

Swedish Hydro Solutions treatment solutions centers around biodegradable environmentally friendly technologies, and maximizing safety for job site staff. For instance, chitosan is frequently utilized as a flocculent. Chitosan is a flocculant derived from shellfish industry by-products, and has proven to be a highly effective flocculant. Its water solubility eliminates the need for freshwater in the mixing process, and its user-friendly dosing technology enhances efficiency. Notably, chitosan is not only environmentally safe but poses no harm to individuals coming into contact with the treated water.
