CLEAN WATER AND SANITATION
Ensure access to water and sanitation for all
Over 844 million people in the world live without access to a basic drinking water service, and 2.3 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 74 % 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.
The Arroyo Culebro Cuenca Baja WWTP applies sludge co-digestion processes by which it increases its normal electricity production by 40% to treat wastewater from the municipalities of Getafe, Pinto, and Fuenlabrada.
The Cuenca Media-Alta del Arroyo Culebro WWTP treats wastewater from Leganés, Fuenlabrada, Humanes and Parla.
It has an advanced tertiary treatment system, the latest in Europe, which, by means of processes such as ultrafiltration and reverse osmosis, is capable of supplying 12,400 m3 per day of high quality reclaimed water.
This WWTP also has a wastewater reclamation station (ERAR) at its facilities, which is capable of sending reclaimed water for the irrigation of parks and gardens to the municipalities of Getafe, Fuenlabrada, Parla, Humanes, Alcorcón and Pinto, and, in the future, also to Leganés and Rivas-Vaciamadrid
