The final step to safe surface water
To discharge safely to surface water, all micropollutants must be removed from the water. Therefore, the MicroForce uses an advanced oxidation technology, using ozone. Ozone has strong oxidising properties, which is necessary to break down even the most persistent micropollutants.
Micropollutants are harmful substances that occur in low concentrations in wastewater. Medicine residues are a good example, but pesticides, endocrine disruptors and other specific wastes from the chemical industry are also considered micropollutants. MicroForce has been extensively tested and can remove a wide variety of micropollutants, including Watch List components. These are government-selected indicators representing a broad spectrum of pharmaceuticals. MicroForce has a high removal efficiency while also removing nutrients such as nitrogen. This makes the treated wastewater less harmful, so it can be safely returned to nature.
