Wastewater Treatment Plant Water Reuse

Water reuse in a wastewater treatment plant is quickly becoming a necessity in today’s climate. Having a system that ensures sustainable operations is essential.

Treating process wastewater to a reusable quality via your wastewater treatment plant has multiple advantages. Water reuse means reducing water costs, minimising trade waste expenses and improving corporate environmental responsibility. Aerofloat provides expertise and experience in recommending both proprietary and off-the-shelf products, ensuring a clever and robust wastewater system that offers water reuse.

Water is a valued commodity.

Depending on the quality of treated effluent, treated wastewater from Aerofloat’s plants can be used for irrigation, toilet flushing, wash water, process water and in some circumstances, boiler feed water. The level of treatment required is determined by the incoming wastewater quality and the outgoing purpose for reuse.

Aerofloat has extensive experience in designing wastewater treatment plants for effluent reuse and can develop simple yet reliable solutions for its clients. If water reuse is a desired outcome, Aerofloat will take this into account during the concept phase, providing a design to ensure the effluent is treated to a quality that is suitable for reuse.

Experts in wastewater treatment plant water reuse

Wastewater treatment water reuse requires in-depth knowledge of the local requirements for reuse.

Options for
water reuse

Wastewater water reuse is an important option for many companies, to save on costs and meet environmental requirements.

Wastewater treated to a suitable level can be reused for agriculture, irrigation, wash water within the facility and toilet flushing.

Aerofloat’s experience in water reuse

Aerofloat has extensive experience in designing wastewater treatment solutions whereby the treated effluent can be reused.

Some of these include irrigation for cattle crops, surrounding gardens and nearby forests, as well as reuse as wash water within plastics recycling facilities, resulting in an improved finished plastic product.

Relevant products

When designing a wastewater treatment plant, Aerofloat engineers utilise a range of different proprietary and off-the-shelf products to deliver the best wastewater treatment solution.


Aerofloat’s own patented DAF technology in the AeroDAF was designed to provide a compact, low maintenance and affordable DAF solution and has been successfully applied to numerous plants around the world.


AeroCIRC DAF is a traditional stainless steel, top scraper, open DAF with unique design features that enhance the maintenance and cleaning of the system.


Moving bed biofilm reactor (MBBR) involves a biological process commonly used to remove soluble contaminants, such as BOD and COD (typically dissolved sugars and proteins).


AeroSBR technology is a suspended growth biological treatment process whereby the microorganisms are settled, and effluent decanted, within the same reactor.


The AeroASR (activated sludge reactor) is an aerobic, suspended growth biological treatment process and the mixed liquor containing the microorganisms which flows from the ASR are settled in a separate clarifier.


Filtration is a common step in any water treatment process, helping to achieve high quality effluent. Aerofloat has access to a number of filtration products including reverse osmosis, ultrafiltration, microfiltration and sand filtration units.


Disinfection is typically the final crucial step in the water treatment cycle, and there are several ways this can be achieved. Aerofloat’s engineers advise the best method to meet each client’s needs.

Membrane Bio Reactor

Aerofloat has many combined years’ engineering experience in the wastewater treatment industry. It also has access to several third-party products at competitive prices to incorporate into any design – including membrane bio reactors (MBRs) for biological treatment.
