At the BIG event organised by bpifrance in Paris, Micr’Eau Chairman Pascal Guasp was interviewed on the subject of international development.
Micr’Eau has delivered several tens of tons of filtering media to its French and international customers over the past two months, such as:
- 20 T of GEH to treat arsenic in Chile
- 4T of Bayoxide E33 to eliminate arsenic for an agri-food manufacturer in France
- 10 T of Mangagran to treat iron and manganese in Tunisia
- 10 T of activated alumina at the SAURgroup in France for its drinking water units.
Micr’Eau has won with the water operator ESVAL (Valparaiso region) a public call for the supply of filtering media for arsenic treatment and the associated service (removal of the saturated media Bayoxide; installation of the new GEH and the filter underlay).
This contract will be executed during the November-December period with the support of our two Chilean subsidiaries AEC and ABM, dedicated to construction and environmental services.
The Punta Piedra station treats 7200m3/d of drinking water to supply the Serena and Coquimbo, two cities located 500 km north of Santiago de Chile.
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.
Micr’Eau has started a GEH media change project in Quilicura, one of Chile’s largest drinking water stations (540m3/h) treating arsenic.
