Supply of filter media in France and internationally

Supply of filter media in France and internationally

Micr'eau is now well known for providing regular filter media to its customers in France and internationally in the field of drinking water.
In the first half of the year, it delivered more than 50 tons of media on the French market and in Chile to its customers such as Saur, Air Eau Système , SDEA (67), RLV (63) in the arsenic market as well as that of iron and manganese or fluorine.
In Chile, despite the Covid crisis, a 40-foot container for 20 tons of GEH is expected in the coming weeks to supply its municipal and industrial customers such as Wes Chile, the San Pedro d'Atacama RP Or Toconao and Chile's private water dealers.

FASEP in Chile

Micr'Eau launched its FASEP project in Chile this winter to bring all its technical expertise on the ability of isolated sites in the arsenic-contaminated Antofagasta region, such as below in Toconao and Socaire at an altitude of 3,500m; In addition, in this project Micr'Eau will develop services to take over saturated media to regenerate them and give them a second life, thus contributing to the improvement of the environmental environment on soil pollution and thus bringing an operating economy to the indigenous communities it will manage in the Salar of Atacama. This project is planned to take place in the year 2021 and will occupy a dozen people in France and Chile. As a reminder, this project is financed by France to the tune of 521,000 euros as part of the programme to relaunch SMEs from the environment sector.
