Botlek Central Waste Water Purification Plant (CAB) The Botlek is home to business parks in which the waste water is purified jointly. These purification processes and the individual waste water purification plants (AWZIs) are often at the end of their life span or have reached the limits of their capacity. Investments or reinvestments in waste water purification plants would involve huge amounts of money without significantly affecting industrial production.
Scale advantage and lower costs According to Evides Industriewater, what might initially seem like a threat is actually an opportunity for various companies in the area to work together. After all, by also including the purification of waste water in the highly integrated Botlek area, waste water can also create a competitive advantage. This is because investments in waste water purification plants will no longer be necessary and it will be possible to focus on production, ultimately resulting in a lower total cost of ownership.
Launching customers The development of the Botlek Central Waste Water Purification Plant (CAB) began in 2013. An initiative of Evides Industriewater together with the launching customer Huntsman. The project involves the construction of a new waste water purification plant and pressure sewer to which various companies in the surroundings can connect.
Pressure sewer pipeline The pressure sewer will be constructed in the Botlek and will be approximately twelve kilometres long. The construction of the sewer is a complex project because of all the other pipelines in the group. A new pipeline can only be laid after very careful harmonisation.
Extensive capacity The CAB waste water purification plant (AWZI) will be positioned next to the existing waste water purification plant on the Huntsman site. In order to serve enough companies, absorb growth and process waste water peaks, the waste water purification plant will have a spacious design (>140,000 contamination units). In addition, it will be possible to expand if this is deemed desirable in the long term.
