Waste treatment plant in Cusco

Postby woodchuck » Tue Apr 30, 2019 4:53 pm

This is a good article as waste is a common problem in Peru.
Are there other treatment plants up & running or anticipated in Peru?

You asked in another thread "why is the water off Peru is murky" That should be your answer. Nope. No water treatment.

Peru has made a great effort the last years to clean up the Ocean and it is being done well, but it is needed to work more and more in provinces

PTAR = Planta de Tratamiento de Aguas Residuales

Lima cover 98% of all the waste water. There are several plants in the Coast as Taboada for the North districts in Lima. Taboada is the biggest in South America . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ZgePAiRm3k

The good thing about Taboada is that the technology is 100% Eco-friendly so no chemical used during the process

The other is "La Chira" south area of Lima . http://www.gym.com.pe/nuestros-proyecto ... r-la-chira

And this is probably the best PTAR of all. They are a group of 10 small plants for waste water around beautiful Titicaca Lake !

The project has begun https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RypIyIglrcE

It is a good question. Murky waters does not mean to be polluted , but do exist pollution into the ocean

The sea in Perú has always been murky. It has a lot of Plankton, the basic food for fish to grow. The Chimues were great fishermen catching in murky waters
