- Pronal (compact gasometer in container for an industrial sector resulting from R&D)
- Smurfit Kappa (dismantling of an Easter storer, followed by a mobile unit and a gasometer in container)
- Tereos (design and supply of a flare for a sugar site located in the Hauts de France)
Each in 3 different areas: hospital waters, municipal waters and mineral waters. In total about thirty tons of media GEH (iron oxide) and Actiguard (activated alumina) delivered this summer.
Micreau, thanks to the support of the “Find an Expert” service of the CNRS, has signed a technical cooperation agreement with the Institute of Chemistry of Clermont-Ferrand, a research laboratory of the CNRS and the University Clermont Auvergne and Sigma Clermont, to characterize the adsorption power of filter media applied in the elimination of arsenic.
With a very important tooling and a strong competence in the field of adsorbent media, this laboratory should allow Micreau to strengthen its technological knowledge in this market segment applied to drinking water but also to industrial and mining effluents.
To learn more about this collaboration, watch the joint video between the leader of Micreau and Mr. Claude Forano, professor at the University clermont Auvergne, which was presented on June 25, 2021 by the team of the “Find an Expert” service of the CNRS as part of the event “Connexion Days” organized by the LAB’O village by CA , crédit Agricole Centre Loire, the technopole and the metropolis of Orléans.
Micr’Eau has started a GEH media change project in Quilicura, one of Chile’s largest drinking water stations (540m3/h) treating arsenic.
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.
Micr'Eau as part of its international development has secured more than 350,000 euros in contracts in Latin America with a contract for Suez de Mexico for the Chihuahua treatment plant where it will supply a gasometer that stores 2650 m3 of biogas; as well as for the main Buenos Aires station of Barros Sur Oeste for 3 gasometers of 1400m3 of capacity.
These projects are being manufactured in Europe and will be delivered this spring by our teams.
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.
This project is established for 3 years and concerns 5 adsorption filtration treatment plants in the capital operated by Aguas Andinas: Quilicura antigua y nueva, San Antonio, Lampa, lo Pinto.
With the support of its Chilean mining services partner, Cobre Y metales (80 people), Micr’Eau and its subsidiary AEC will have to manage the change of more than 300 T of GEH-type adsorbant media saturated with arsenic during drinking water filtration. This new mega-reference is in addition to the 80 installations already followed by the group around the world.
The project will be to build two arsenic processing units and a saturated media regeneration centre to serve industrial and municipal customers in northern Chile.
This signing ceremony was held at the French Ambassador’s house in Santiago in the presence of the Economic Mission and the elected representatives of the Northern Region as well as the President of the Micr’Eau group Pascal Guasp
5 .5 Tons of media made in Germany specifically for the SAUR group which manages one of the largest parks of water treatment plants eliminating arsenic.
Here is the new challenge of Micr’Eau, which for the sixth time in recent years supplies saUR with filter media throughout the French territory as:
- Eastern France
- Center (Creuse)
This tender won for 4 years confirms the logic of our company to deploy in the supply, installation and monitoring of flares after the gain of 6 new flares of 3600 Nm3/h awarded by the Suez group in 2019 to the Hofstetter-Micreau group for its Biogas sector on the same site. Achères is as a reminder the largest sewage treatment plant in Europe (8 Million Equivalent Inhabitants)
Micr’Eau, with its nearly 20 years of experience with all the technical solutions developed with the Sattler group in the field of biogas storage, is entrusted by Suez France (Strasbourg agency) with detail studies of the installation of two gasometers on post digesters as part of the contract of work won by this group on behalf of the SDEA.
The objective is to size two stockers with a total volume of nearly 1000 m3 of biogas produced by the methanization of sludge from the treatment of wastewater from the Benfeld desure plant (67).
This study will result in the completion of these biogas storage works from 2021 before being injected into the grid.
With these two units and those it manages in maintenance in Brussels North on behalf of Veolia, Micr’Eau owns all the units storing biogas in the Belgian capital.
Chile: the Micr’Eau group sets out again to conquer construction and services markets in the water and arsenic sector
After having participated in several contracts for the construction of drinking water stations in the mining (Teck Bechtel north Chile) and urban (Sembcorp / Santiago de Chile) fields totaling more than 10 million euros, Pascal Guasp and his Franco Chilean teams are now setting out to conquer markets for the operation and maintenance of water treatment units with their local partners: Cobre y Metales and Molambiente, two Chilean SMEs employing more than 200 people in the mining and community services sector .
This targets markets previously won in construction as well as industrial customers in northern Chile made up of world leaders such as Codelco (in copper) and SQM (in lithium).
As part of its distribution contract with the company Wasser Chemie, the company Micr’Eau set up in August 2020 an arsenic treatment unit in thermal waters (temperature 34 degrees) using its filter Arsepur and the GEH media produced by its partner in Germany. This standardized unit is intended to equip any community or industry having concerns about contamination with arsenic, selenium, antimony etc …
