International Water Summit Abu Dhabi, 2018
AMCON Europe and INVENT UAE, our distributor of the United Arab Emirates, have recently exhibited/participated at The International Water Summit 2018, in Abu Dhabi. We would like to thank those who spent their precious time to visit us.
The exhibition its self was very interesting as it has been our first time to actually exhibit in an event in Middle East Region.
Unlike the ordinary exhibition where there are exhibitors and visitors, IWS also offers 1 VS 1business meetings events during the exhibition as well as various confrences based on various topics related to water sustainability.
And the biggest surprise during the event was when Sheikh Mohammed who is the prime minister of UAE showed up and walked up to our stand out of the blue.
Prior to the visit, we expected the weather to be quite hot, however, the weather was just beautiful. After the exhibition was over, managing director of INVENT UAE, Ms. Razieh has given us a beautiful tour around Abu Dhabi.
We were very impressed when we realized how far Abu Dhabi has advanced and developed just in the last years.
We really enjoyed the every single second during the trip.
Thank you again for your visit and we look forward to see you all soon.
AMCON Europe Open Day 2018
The latest Open Day in Amcon Europe for Water and Sewerage systems companies was held on 17th of January.
Visitors could see presentations of new products, our production hall, witness a detailed insight into the VOLUTE™ technology using Virtual Reality technology and then compare it to a real life installation in a wastewater treatment plant in Rudná, where our VOLUTE™ ES-301 is installed. We introduced our new GS series with pre-tickening and other services we provide to our customers including chemical optimization by Chem.Engi.
The visitors were excited by the new model’s 3-in-one functionality – pre-thickening, thickening and dewatering in one small footprint.
We will inform you on our web site about the next Open day date, but feel free to inquire about a private visit.
Last day of winter
Setsubun is Japanese word which means to separate the seasons and it points to changing of the seasons. Setsubun marks the change between every season but from the Edo-era, the change from cold winter to warm spring was more special and today it is traditionally celebrated as the Risshun festival on 3rd of February
Japan has a ritual in this season, called mamemaki, which consists of throwing soybeans outside the house while chanting “Demons out of the house! Invite happiness into the house!” (“Oni wa soto! Fuku wa uchi!”). This is because there is a tradition that Japanese demons called “Oni” come out at the turn of the season. The Japanese origin comes from long time ago in Kyoto of the eighth century. When the oni came out, people escaped the disaster by throwing roasted soybeans at the demon’s eye.
In Japan, bean means Fertility. Throwing beans at oni wards off the evil spirits who take bad health and misfortune away with them and eating roasted soybeans is said to bring happiness throughout the year.
Optimising your chemical wastewater treatment
Shrinking budgets, legal and environmental demands, as well as increasing process complexity. These challenges faced by water and wastewater industries have never been greater! Therefore optimizing the chemical treatment on your effluent plant is a crucial part for enhancing your WWT process whilst minimizing these challenges. All industries carry the responsibility to monitor characteristic of their discharged effluent which must meet the regulatory requirements.
Selecting the most suitable coagulant and flocculant should be guided by these parameters: operational process of the effluent plant and types of suspended solids for removal. Making the right choice of chemicals will have a significant impact on both profitability and regulatory compliance. The next step for optimizing your wastewater treatment is dosing the correct amount of chemicals in the right way. It is extremely important that each chemical is applied in the correct amount, at the right time, and introduced into the wastewater flow in the most effective way. Optimizing your chemical wastewater treatment and the correct chemical dosage will help you to reduce operational cost, avoid financial sanctions, operational disruptions or business losses and sustain green environment.
