Acqua Lete is a historic brand whose first appearance on the beverage markets dates back to 1893, when the Acqua Lete Company began to bottle mineral water.
In 1906, the company obtained its first international awards and, through constant and profitable word of mouth, the reputation of Acqua Lete grew more and more.
From 1960, the market began to grow, and the company entrusted the production to the first automatic bottling plants to respond to the constant demands. In this development perspective, Acqua Lete made winning business choices, acquiring advanced technologies that worked in synergy with its quality and organizational efficiency.
Recently, Lete Spa changed its name to Società Generale delle Acque Minerali SpA (SGAM SpA). Its wise investments in new technologies focused on modernity, anticipating the demands of the beverage market by providing consumers with easy-to-carry and use containers.
The company has recently focused on technological and organizational modernization.
With this objective, for its Pratella (CE) plant, Acqua Lete selected Cannon Artes to construct the new wastewater treatment plant to guarantee compliance with the stringent parameters for discharging into the surface water body.
For this purpose, Cannon Artes designed a biological wastewater treatment plant with MBR membrane technology. The modular system was made entirely of stainless steel at the Cannon Artes factory and supplied on a turnkey basis.
Cannon Artes’ technical staff proceeded with the plant’s startup, meeting the required performance. In addition to the oxidation tank and the MBR module, the scope of supply included all the equipment necessary for correct operation: blowers, chemical dosages for washing, nitrogen and phosphorus to balance the nutrient ratio, and a PLC for remote control of the process and local management of the plant.
MBR was the chosen technology solution for two fundamental reasons: to reduce the overall footprint (due to the layout constraints) and ensure the best possible quality of the treated effluent. This request derives from the customer’s attention to environmental issues and its commitment to preserve and respect the territory in which it operates and is actively present in the community.
MBR biological plants represent an advantageous solution for wastewater treatment in the food and beverage industry as it obtains excellent quality standards in line with the most stringent requirements for wastewater reuse. The plant supplied by Cannon Artes continues to contribute to Acqua Lete’s international success, reinforcing its status as one of the most important Italian business realities in the beverage sector.
