CarboPlus®

The proven and efficient way to remove micropollutants, pesticides and pharmaceuticals from water

CarboPlus®

CarboPlus®

CarboPlus® from Saur is a treatment for micropollutants such as metaldehyde, for THM precursors and pharmaceuticals.

Operators looking for a reliable and cost-effective way to remove chemicals and other pollutants from the water, look to CarboPlus® for a solution which can be integrated into existing systems with no interruption to water supply.

CarboPlus® is specifically developed to address pesticide issues. It utilises the adsorption capacity of activated carbon to bring a compact solution to the growing problem of tackling hard to remove micro substances such as metaldehyde. CarboPlus® is easy to operate, efficient, and simple to incorporate into an existing process stream. The technology is already proven in industrial and waste water systems as well as within drinking water systems.

CarboPlus® process

CarboPlus® utilises the adsorption capacity of activated carbon to bring a compact solution to the growing problem of tackling hard to remove micro substances.

CarboPlus® is easy to operate, efficient, and simple to incorporate into an existing process stream.

Currently used within industrial, waste water as well as drinking water systems, the process has been adopted in over 20 different sites in France and is being tested with water operators in the UK.

Water operators are coming under increasing pressures to find cost-effective solutions to the issue of micropollutants in water:

  • An increase in water quality standards
  • Increasing public health concerns
  • Regulatory pressures to remove metaldehyde and THM precursors

National and international water companies are turning to CarboPlus® as a solution to the issue of improved water quality because it:

  • Offers high removal rates of difficult to remove pesticides includingmetaldehyde
  • Is easily installed alongside existing processes
  • Has limited impact on operational costs due to its simplicity, ease of use and inherent reliability

CarboPlus® delivers efficiency improvements as well as pollution reduction

The simple fluidised bed and carbon replacement approach maintains a controlled adsorption and removal capacity within a reactor using familiar media and with controlled carbon injection and removal.

Simple hydraulics allow the water to pass through the fluidised bed of activated carbon, separating with natural gravity with little or no need for chemical usage.
