Grey Water treatment by ozone

2017 - 2018 • GreenLife GmbH


Grey Water treatment in houses, small companies, residential buildings, and reuse it for domestic purposes.


When the well is dry, we will know the worth of water. Water is the driving force of all nature no one can deny that.
Global warming is doing a great job consuming earth’s water over and above the rapid growing in population, for those reasons extreme poverty is growing larger each day, so all eyes focuses on new ways to supply earth’s water.

Jordan now is sorted one of the five-driest countries in the world; being one of the most arid countries; Jordan is facing water shortage now before than ever, this encourages people to initiate discussions to overcome this disaster.
Innovative technologies and progressive systems are being used to overcome these obstacles. On top of innovative water resources solutions is separation of greywater and reuse it again, this concerns to everyone involved to water management as a sustainable approach.

This study took place in Schwerin, Germany, in GreenLife Company, a pilot plant consist of treating greywater using ozone to match the standards for toilet flushing and irrigation purposes. The system was designed after replacing an UV treatment plant with a new ozone treatment plant using three consecutive tanks of a different treatment stages and ends with a product of clean water, sedimentation stage, reaction chamber which ozone will be bubbled through a diffuser in the reaction chamber to show which of which can give us better results.
