Modern Water’s Poseidon processes use patented wastewater treatment technology for the treatment of saline municipal and industrial effluent or for seawater substitution.
Poseidon technology allows the safe and reliable treatment of saline effluents to fully meet the most stringent international wastewater discharge standards. It also allows seawater to be substituted instead of costly potable water in municipal/domestic sewage facilities or in applicable industrial water systems. In domestic applications this can reduce the requirement for fresh water by up to 30%. The technology is proven to be effective at a wide range of saline concentrations and on applications where saline concentrations are subject to fluctuations.
Modern Water is a principal partner in the consortium which is currently the preferred bidder on the Gibraltar Wastewater Treatment Plant Design, Build, Finance and Operate (DBFO) project, a 60,000 population equivalent saline treatment works.
