H2O. Leaders in Zero Liquid Discharge.


Felix Fuhrler, the Production Foreman at H2O GmbH, reports in an interview about his working day in production, the challenges that this entails, and, of course, the reasons why the road to wastewater-free production with VACUDEST is the right decision.

“If it works, work with it; if it doesn’t, change it!” This was the motto under which the French firm DBP Holding operated when it decided on a proven wastewater treatment system with VACUDEST technology for its new factory workshop. Following over 15 years of positive experience with two existing VACUDEST system installations, a new VACUDEST L 4500 is now processing acidic rinsing water used to condition stainless steel and titanium.

Hygiene requirements are growing increasingly strict in many sectors, and the treatment of industrial wastewater is no exception. The vacuum distillation process in particular has to deal with the question of sterile treatment and subsequent storage of water obtained from the process. The mere possibility of reintroducing wastewater into the production process makes it imperative to prevent bacterial impurities.

The Chinese subsidiary of H2O, Kunshan water treatment equipment co., Ltd., was founded in 2015. The company entered the Chinese market with Uwe Hanschke as General Manager. Since then, Hanschke has been responsible for supporting existing customers and expanding the market. In the following interview, Uwe Hanschke talks about his experiences, his everyday life in China, and the biggest challenges he has faced since taking the job.

Montblanc is a company based in Hamburg, Germany, that is well-known for manufacturing handcrafted, high-quality writing instruments. All Montblanc writing instruments are characterised by their high-quality materials. Many individual components in the pens – such as the nibs, rings and clips – are made from precious metals or are coated with precious metals. An electroplating process is used to coat the components with these metals. This process results in wastewater that contains precious metals and that must be treated before it can be fed into the sewerage system.
