Remix plant protected by top products

South Africa has been under water constraints for years because of water wastage, increased water demand and drought so there is a need to stabilise our water with an emphasis on re-using water. A first-of-its-kind remix plant has been built at the eThekwini wastewater treatment works in Durban to establish the advantages of remix technology and the feasibility of large-scale implementation, and Sika South Africa products were crucial to the project.

Stefanutti Stocks Coastal, an engineering construction contractor, undertook the task of constructing the remix plant, a 6.25Ml/d water treatment facility using a remix system by Hitachi, a digital solutions conglomerate. The system uses direct potable re-use water and combines it with desalinated seawater with the aim of accomplishing 30% energy saving compared to existing desalination systems.
