Ideas for a clean environment

„Only 0.3% of the Earth’s water
 is drinking water.“

Drinking water and process water treatment

Water is the source of all life and our most important food. A global water shortage can only be prevented by intelligent water management, and taking the greatest possible care with our reserves. We are well aware of this responsibility.

Drinking water should not
only be clear, but clean too 

Over a number of decades, Harbauer has gained comprehensive competencies for the communal and industrial needs of the water industry. Harbauer Environmental Technology handles even the most complex range of high concentration pollutants both effectively and economically. Our experience from a wealth of projects, our cooperation with universities and our own experiments with pilot plants and operations have put us in a position where we can react comprehensively and efficiently to the respective task in hand. 

Harbauer pays particular attention to the constant improvement of existing plants, and innovations which we promptly transform into functioning plants.
