Infraserv GmbH & Co. Höchst KG at Industriepark Höchst in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, has built a new river water plant to supply the 460-hectare industrial park with high-quality water. Every year 60 million cubic meters of water from the Main River are extracted and purified. In this manner the water can be reused up to 50 times.

The team of the "Pörner Water" competence center of the Vienna-based Pörner Ingenieurgesellschaft was awarded with the engineering, supply, installation and commissioning of the river water treatment plant.


Membrane technology for efficient water treatment and water protection

With the new river water treatment plant engineered by Pörner Water, technologies of fine and ultrafiltration, chemical flocculation and chemical cleaning of membranes are used with a purification capacity of up to 1,100 cubic meters per hour.

By converting the pure water plant to the ultrafiltration process, river water is treated to produce water that is free of solids and germs. The ultrafiltration membranes provide a safe, physical barrier to particulate contaminants and microorganisms in the raw water.

"Pörner Water" Project Manager Andreas Trostmann on the increasing importance of the technology in industrial plant construction: "Membrane technology is not only an excellent method for efficient process water treatment, it also contributes to water protection due to the highly reduced demand for chemicals. We look forward to building further water treatment plants with this technology in the future.”

With the "Pörner Water" competence center, the plant engineering company is expanding its range of services to include industrial water treatment and is using its comprehensive expertise to minimize energy and water consumption as well as plant emissions in a sustainable manner.
