Xylem, a global water technology company, announced that its Wedeco brand—which focuses on chemical-free, sustainable water treatment technologies—is this year celebrating its 40th anniversary. There are more than 250,000 Wedeco ultraviolet (UV) disinfection and ozone oxidation systems operating worldwide in private, public utility and industrial applications.
Founded in Herford, Germany in 1976, Xylem’s Wedeco brand offers customers an alternative to disinfection chemicals with its portfolio of treatment technologies, including UV and ozone disinfection systems and Advanced Oxidation Process (AOP) solutions.
Xylem’s Wedeco technologies help operators achieve their required water effluent quality while delivering performance, reliable operations and energy savings across all industries and applications. Wedeco’s MiPRO AOP, UV and ozone disinfection solutions are also playing a role in Xylem’s effort to support water reuse. As communities around the world seek to build resilience to the effects of climate change, urbanization and emerging water quality concerns, water reuse is increasingly adopted as an essential component of a sustainable water future.
