Organized in the Vaud / Geneva region, the afterwork of April 2nd brought together customers and stakeholders from the industrial and water treatment sector.

The evening was dedicated to on-site industrial wastewater treatment, before it reaches the communal treatment plant, as explained by a representative of a municipal water treatment facility. It gave a better understanding of the various types of wastewater and the operation of such a facility. As such, it has contributed to improve these industrial companies overall understanding of on-site treatment and raise their awareness about the legislative aspects of environmental standards when it comes to wastewater disposal.

  1. «Industrial wastewater, the point of view of the plant operator», presentation by Mr. Tony Reverchon – Director of the EPRM Epuration Region Morgienne – emphasized the importance of wastewater pre-treatment , focusing on monitoring and management at the source (separation of water types, no dilution of polluted water, compliance with general / specific requirements) to allow optimal operation of treatment plants downstream of industries.
  2. «Pre-treatment of Industrial Waste Water», which was presented by Dr. Felicien Mazille – Head of the Water Treatment Division NGL, described various techniques for pre-treatment of industrial wastewater and an approach for decision-makers to select the most relevant solutions for a good management of industrial wastewater.
  3. Mr. Youssef Bellammou – Maintenance Manager – at BestinClass SA, whose main activity is industrial polishing of watch parts, jewelry and writing instruments, shared with us his experience of the different types of wastewaters at BestinClass.
