Incatema Consulting & Engineering, example of Circular Economy at the Caracol WWTP (Haiti)

12 February, 2020

Incatema Consulting & Engineering operates since its construction in 2015 the wastewater treatment plant of the Industrial Park of Caracol (Haiti) as part of its commitment to the circular economy and the objectives of Agenda 2030 number 6 Clean Water and Sanitation, SDG 3, Health and Wellness and SDG 13, Climate Action.

The company’s efforts are currently directed at ensuring appropriate management of the country’s natural resources by using the macrophyte water treatment system, an innovative process in which native plants purify the water without high energy requirements, favouring the environment

In the words of Fernando Díaz, director of Incatema’s Water division, “we feel particularly proud of having provided Haiti’s citizens with this turnkey project. It both favours sustainability in the treatment of Haiti’s wastewater and demonstrates Incatema’s commitment to the environment, in a country where we work with a resource that improves thousands of families’ quality of life.”

“In the context of the company’s commitment to sustainable growth and circular economy, the Caracol wastewater treatment project is a reality that is particularly suited to the country’s climate, which allows water to be purified using macrophytic plant roots all year round. In this way, we optimise a natural resource, at the same time as we rule out the use of chemical substances and treat the water with a lower energy cost,” adds Diaz.
