New filtration equipment

The site was mainly focused on the rehabilitation of water and air treatment equipment which was used and severely degraded:

The water treatment works by sand filter will be replaced by treatment with perlite, a natural volcanic rock. This filtration method makes it possible to make considerable savings in water and energy and also to improve the quality of filtration.

A technology that effectively reduces the levels of chlorine combined with an effective destruction of chloramines, while maintaining very good water quality.
