Finish company claims to have found the key to zero waste water
A company in Finland called Tekno-Forest claims to have found the golden nugget in the car wash industry: a zero emission water treatment process ‘that redefines the industry’s standards and paves the way for a more sustainable future.’
Water recycling and water treatment is nothing new in the car wash industry. Companies like Istobal, Christ and WashTec all make machines with impressive water reuse percentages. Sometimes up to 90% of the waste water is recycled.
But zero emission is something unheard of, if true. The finish company Tekno-Forest (part of Pineline, a company specializing in car wash chemicals) claims it has rewritten the rules. According to them, not a single drop of wastewater needs to find its way into the sewer system.
At the core of their technology is a refined bio-digestion process that effectively breaks down all organic materials. This method ensures that no pollutants or contaminants are released into the environment.
According to a press release from the company, their innovation challenges the basis of environmental certifications for car wash facilities. “The days of relying on eco-labels that take into account the environmental effects of cleaning chemicals and the biodegradability of wastewater are now numbered. Tekno-Forest’s system makes such certifications unnecessary, as it already directly implements environmental responsibilities.”
The article does not say in detail how the technique works, but according to Tekno-Forest, “One of the most remarkable features of this water treatment process is its simplicity and ease of maintenance. Unlike traditional systems, it operates odorless, eliminating the unpleasant smells often associated with industrial wastewater treatment.”
