The access to clean drinking water and service water is the most important basic need of every human being. There is no life without water. However, there are many regions around the world where people are suffering from water scarcity and lack access to clean drinking water. Only 3% of the world's water resources are fresh water, which means that seawater needs to be desalinated consuming a lot of energy. STEP is both an expert in seawater desalination and an expert in water treatment strategies. We advise you in thermal (MED & MSF) as well as membrane-based (RO) desalination technologies. Especially in the field of leachate cleaning, STEP has extensive experiences, for example in the implementation of biological treatment, membrane processes (MF & UF) and adsorption on activated carbon.
