A project for the future
After a few years of persistent work, we are very proud to share the start-up of our wastewater treatment plant (PTAR). This pioneering hydraulic work will allow the arable area to be expanded in the Ica Valley, Peru, developing sustainable agriculture, generating new formal jobs and contributing foreign currency to the country.
Efficient use of water per crop through the use of technology
Diversification of our water sources: Underground,
superficial and residual.
Promote water infiltration for the recovery of the aquifer
In 2018, the municipal water and sewerage company of Ica (EMAPICA) publicly tendered wastewater to be treated and reused. AGROKASA participated and won this contest and, as a result, they worked on a project that will have a positive impact on our community and organization. Well, it will guarantee the responsible use of these waters for the next 20 years.
The dream of The Nasca
The biological wastewater treatment plant is already a reality, it is one of the most modern facilities of its kind in Latin America and the world. Through the use of MBR technology, it allows obtaining water for agricultural use that exceeds the standards required by the Peruvian authorities and the World Health Organization (WHO). In addition, this new water source makes it possible for us to make better use of the soil, since it allows us to expand the cultivation area in Fundo La Catalina (600 hectares).
The operation of this modern plant will comply with the provisions of the Water Resources Law and complementary regulations, as well as the applicable environmental and sanitary legislation. Among the benefits that this project will have in our area of influence, we highlight the following:
Contract signing with EMAPICA (Wastewater supply for 20 years)
Consent of the good PRO to Agrokasa
Good PRO is provided to Agrokasa
Operation And Technology
Our PTAR makes use of MBR technology (Biological Membrane Reactors) which combines processes and membrane technology to obtain water suitable for crop irrigation from wastewater.
That is why the plant is one of the most modern facilities of its kind in Latin America and the world. Let's learn more about how it works.
After many years of persevering work, we are very proud to share the commissioning of our wastewater treatment plant (PTAR). This magnificent hydraulic work will make it possible to expand the arable area in the Ica Valley, Peru, thus developing sustainable agriculture, in addition, it will generate new formal jobs and provide foreign currency for the country.
