CLEAN WATER AND SANITATION
Ensure access to water and sanitation for all
Over 2,000 million people in the world live without access to a basic drinking water service, and 3,6 billionhave no access to a basic sanitation service, resulting in avoidable deaths, chronic disease, fewer hours of education and low productivity.
ACCIONA has positioned itself as a key player in the water treatment sector. Its innovative management seeks to resolve the challenges with respect to the shortage of water resources.
Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts
The generation and use of energy accounts for 35 % of total greenhouse gas emissions in the world. This activity is the largest contributor to global warming. Investment in renewable energy, energy efficiency and other low-carbon technologies will continue to be essential to meet the emerging needs of humanity and to minimize their negative impact on the environment.
ACCIONA considers the fight against climate change and its effects to be a strategic priority. The company works to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions in order to contribute to the progress of society and respond to the main challenges of sustainable development in the areas of infrastructure, water and energy, leading the transition to a low-carbon economy.
Design and construction of the Martos DWTP. The plant has 2 water trains that include coagulation-flocculation, lamella settling with sludge recirculation, sand filtration and disinfection.
The second train differs from the first in that it includes a water salinity reduction step that uses reverse osmosis, upstream of the disinfection phase. The stages of the reverse osmosis process are: chemical conditioning, cartridge filtration and reverse osmosis (osmosis line: 15,552 m3/day). The plant also has a sludge train that includes a buffer tank, mechanical dewatering using centrifuges, and a dewatered sludge storage silo.
