How we do it

Aqua Designs is a pioneer in industrial wastewater treatment and reuse. Our plants are recycling industrial wastewater in more than 100 site locations, which includes many big players like –TWAD, TNSCB, Field fresh, Empee Breweries, Coca Cola, Sterlite Industries, Tata Global etc. On any given day, we manage around 50 million litres of treated water. Over the years we have evolved using the latest technology, expertise and cost effective processes and our treatment includes

Primary treatment

  • Screening
  • Grit removal
  • 0il & Grease removal
  • Equalizatlon
  • Neutralization

Secondary Treatment

Removal of suspended solids by clarifier/ filtration
Removal of COO through:

Aqua – Sub Membrane Bio Reactor [MBR]

Aqua Designs believes in continual improvement and offers Innovative solutions to customer. One such concept is Aqua – Sub Membrane Bio-Reactor Technology Installed for full fledged effluent treatment plants to treat the effluent generated from the unit to the standards prescribed by Pollution Control Board. The membrane used in Aqua-sub MBR is a special version of the ultra filtration type. These membranes filter the solids in the effluent pumped Into It from the bioreactor or aeration tank which In turn is recycled back to the aeration tank, thereby replacing the secondary clarification step which Is required In a conventional activated sludge process. The continuous recycle of the filtered solids from the membrane to the aeration tank enables high MLSS to be maintained, thereby reducing footprint of the aeration tank and at the same time enabling high organic load to be treated.


Systems are the control desks for automatic and manual functions with respect to the plant operations and status feedback. It keeps the plant in dynamic conditions with provision for online data and various reports viz. history, fault alarms, trend chart. It has the following advantages;

  • The entire system can be monitored & controlled from a single control center.
  • Minimizes human interface with machine and thus the possibility of errors & maintenance free operations and also to maintain consistent level of operations .
  • Data logging of all processes parameters with alarm for Plant data Analysis
  • Increased plant productivity In terms of treated water quality and quantity .
  • Safe operation & maintenance of performance by plant operators, eliminating the need for expert consultation.
  • Cost-effective system support during the warranty period
