At a time when environmental protection and water management issues are front page news, as a responsible corporation EYATH S.A. is engaged in daily endeavours to safeguard the environment and manage water better.
The company runs two wastewater treatment facilities:
EYATH S.A. ensures that treated wastewater is fed into the Thermaikos Bay, which is a sensitive body of water, in accordance with the applicable environmental terms and conditions. The company’s primary goal is to collect urban wastewater from its entire territory (98%) and treat 92-96% of it at organic load values, 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. The cleaned waste is then disposed off in the centre of the bay, thereby decongesting the gulf of Thessaloniki.
Research is also being conducted to examine whether wastewater which has undergone biological treatment can be used to irrigate crops and artificially recharge aquifers.
