At the BIG event organised by bpifrance in Paris, Micr’Eau Chairman Pascal Guasp was interviewed on the subject of international development.
Micr’Eau wins the tender for the modernisation of the biogas flares at the Talagante wastewater treatment plant in Chile
Micr’Eau-AEC wins the tender launched by Aguas Andinas for the modernization of the biogas flaring line of the Talagante wastewater treatment plant (250,000 eq Hab); this file includes the installation of a new generation flare and the safety of the existing line. This turnkey project of about 180,000 euros represents 4 to 5 months of construction for our Franco-Chilean teams.
Micr’Eau carries out the factory inspection of its largest flare project with its partner Hofstetter
In the coming weeks, Micr’Eau is due to deliver an important project for the Veolia group in Chile: the supply of a flare and a measurement line for gases entering the combustion sector such as CH4 and CO2 in order to benefit from the Kyoto Protocol tariff, reserved for developing countries.
This project of more than 6 months carried out between the France, the Netherlands and Chile represents a value of several hundred hours of engineering and manufacturing follow-up.
Above is the base of the flare and its biogas compressors in the plant control phase, before its departure to Chile for the waste treatment and storage unit in the Rancagua region (500,000 inhabitants served operated by Veolia’s waste subsidiary)
This will involve measuring and burning excess biogas (CH4 and CO2) from household waste operated by Veolia at one of the largest landfills in Chile (300 to 400,000 inhabitants near Santiago).
This project will be carried out on the basis of the know-how of our long-standing partner Hofstetter, one of the technological precursors on the Kyoto Protocol to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

As part of the largest biomethane recovery market in France (+€200 million market), Micr’Eau participated this autumn in the installation of 6 Hofstetter flares with a 3600 Nm3/h biogas burning capacity. This delivery of key equipment for the biogas sector designed by the Suez group on behalf of SIAAP on the Achères wastewater treatment plant (8 million equivalent inhabitants) is part of the services provided by our company in France and abroad.
