WTA Technologies has inaugurated its new headquarters and production facility in the Kindleben Feld Industrial Park in Gotha, Germany. The company manufactures membrane blocks and modules for water and wastewater filtration and supplies from Gotha all over the world. Financed by several million Euros, the company invests in state-of-the-art machine technology and know-how to produce membrane systems for the treatment of water, wastewater and process water.

The new headquarters will be the centre for the company's international sales, product and process development, engineering services and production activities.

An Industry 4.0, fully automated production process will be built up over the course of the next two years. Production will be gradually equipped with state-of-the-art information and communication technology, making it possible to map not only one production step, but to optimize the entire value chain and allowing all phases of the product life cycle to be integrated, from the idea to development, sales and marketing, manufacturing, use and maintenance to recycling.

'H2L' – submerged membrane module removes pathogens in sewage sludge

The new 'H2L' membrane system removes antibiotics, multi-resistant pathogens and microplastics from wastewater, by fixing these pathogens and substances in the sewage sludge.

WTA Technologies GmbH has also developed the submerged membrane module for challenges such as cloudiness in swimming pool wastewater, algae in zoo pools or congestion of water purification or wastewater systems. It can also be used in niche applications such as grey water treatment, black water treatment, marine wastewater treatment plants, treatment of zoo water, flushing waters and landfill leachate water.

The 'H2L' features a compact design, high filtration power and filtrate quality with lower energy requirements. The modular structure of the membrane system ensures the simple expansion of the system and assembly/dismantling without hoists.
