Freshwater is one of the most crucial resources for people, agriculture and industry. With increasing scarcity of freshwater, the “use and waste” approach for water is no more possible. Effective wastewater treatment and reusing waste water in place of freshwater is what the current situation demands.

With a deep understanding of wastewater treatment technology and with the core objective of providing a sustainable solution to water problems, the Mumbai based A.T.E. HUBER Envirotech Private Limited (AHET)has developed advanced and cost effective technologies for wastewater treatment, recycling, sludge management and Zero Liquid Discharge(ZLD). These robust technologies are designed to ensure that wastewater is treated to a level where it can be reused by industry or households.

"A.T.E. Envirotech Has Ventured Into A Partnership With Huber Se Germany For Innovations In Processes To Bring Out The Best Products And Technologies That Benefit The Customers"

AHET is a joint venture between A.T.E. and HUBER SE, Germany. Together they bring a world of experience in the field of wastewater treatment solutions. AHET’s success lies in addressing customer pain areas through a unique and holistic approach, viz. IPADS Identifying Pain Areas and Devising Solutions. As a result the company has bagged many projects world wide.

AHET also offers useful and specialized services to customers: ‘Experts on Call’ and ‘Enviro COLA’. ‘Experts on Call’ facilitates a one-to-one conversation of the customer with the panel of experts about their wastewater issues.

‘EnviroCOLA’ is a customized cloud based tool that handholds wastewater treatment operators for smooth plant operations and also helps in over all compliance and cost savings.

AHET also provides many value added products like bioboosters, enzymes, high
performance cultures, etc. that help to improve plant performance or quickly restore the plant performance after an upset.

Thriving on Innovation
Over the years AHET has invested continuously in R&D and pilot trials, which has helped them bring many successful wastewater treatment concepts to large scale implementation. AHET completely relies on natural processes for treatment. Using novel anaerobic processes, AHET reduces chemical consumption sludge generation and power consumption, and simultaneously provides an alternative energy source biogas. Waste water plants provided by AHET hence help reduce the overall carbon foot print.

For the municipal sector, AHET is bringing in new generation screens for municipal wastewater treatment. It offer a significant advantage to sewage treatment plants by replacing primary clarifiers and have a reduced footprint. Next in line in the innovation pathway: thermal drying of sludge, and sludge to energy projects.
