Nichola Vasconcellos, marketing manager at Mono, commented: "A key part of the European Water Framework Directive looks at how water used for domestic, commercial and industrial purposes is treated and returned to the water courses. As such, upgrading the effectiveness of treatment processes has been a priority in the current 5 year spending round.
"It is likely that this theme will continue in the forthcoming AMP (Asset Management Plan) 5 round, which starts in 2010 and, it is anticipated, will focus on improving the lifetime cost-effectiveness of the treatment processes.
"To help wastewater treatment works make these improvements, we have developed ranges of pumps, Munchers®, screens and packaged solutions that have been specifically designed to ensure these facilities can operate more effectively and efficiently."
