Treated water from HICLEAR systems can be reused for in-house firefighting systems, car washing or gardening/irrigation purposes. Treated water can be discharged to a sizeable natural water body (lakes, rivers) for subsequent water treatment for drinking water supply.
Green building government subsidies may apply to your infrastructure project utilizing HICLEAR technology, as it is recognized as an environmentally friendly wastewater treatment solution due to its lowest-in-class electricity requirements (kWh/m3) and zero excess sludge production capability - converting incoming wastewater to treated reusable water without any by-products to treat separately.
HICLEAR systems have a Stackable concept, allowing systems to be installed on top of concrete collection or balancing tanks, reducing the space required for wastewater treatment. Compared to alternative technologies, HICLEAR systems can reduce installation space required by 40%.
HICLEAR systems depreciate in value by 5% on a year on year basis. After a period of 10 years of usage with documented maintenance records, HICLEAR systems can be resold at 50% of its original value. Alternative technologies cannot be resold or reused once installed due to their systems requiring regular internals replacement or system immobility, i.e. concrete based systems.
As there are no moving parts in the HICLEAR treatment unit, the system maintenance is limited to bimonthly maintenance checks on rotating equipment only - eg. air blowers and pumps. No daily maintenance or on-site operator is required.
HICLEAR has documented zero sludge production for our installations treating wastewater flow of <700m3/day. This ensures no sludge pumping, dewatering and disposal cost - transferring the cost savings to the client through intelligent design.
With an energy savings option of 1.2kWh/m3, the HICLEAR system provides a greener approach with lower electricity footprint for the client as opposed to 2 ~ 6 kWh/m3 for Membrane BioReactor or Moving Bed Bio Reactor Systems.
Without any requirement for sludge handling, HICLEAR doesn't require chemical dosing for improving sludge settleablity for clarification. This is in stark comparison to the requirement of chemical washing of membranes or PAC dosing in other systems.
