The city of Atyrau’s new wastewater treatment plant (WWTP), on the bank of the Ural River, was built to provide treatment capacity for the eastern part of Atyrau, including the Almagul district. A key feature of the city’s new WWTP is the membrane bioreactor (MBR), which combines a membrane filtering process (micro-filtration or ultrafiltration) with a biological wastewater treatment process, or an activated sludge process. MBR processes result in cleaner effluent that can be discharged into surface or brackish waterways or can be reclaimed for urban irrigation.
To protect the concrete, Pavlodar River Port, the project’s general contractor, specified PENETRON ADMIX-treated concrete for the new concrete WWTP structures. Other existing parts of the Atyrau plant – the receiving chamber, the secondary sediment chambers, and the pumping station – were waterproofed with PENETRON, a topically applied crystalline material.
