Grundfos to Launch Drive to Manage Waste and Recycle Pumps

Date : Dec 22, 2016

Grundfos, an award-winning world leader in advanced pump solutions, will embark on a drive to manage waste and recycle pumps.


The drive aims to transform waste into reusable energy and high quality recyclable materials, and is aligned with the Middle East’s current hot topic of waste management and recycling.


Henning Sandager, Grundfos area managing director, Middle East and Turkey said: “We will be working with companies specialised in waste management in order to assess the savings potential of replacing some obsolete pumps with new high efficiency options.”


“Optimising pumps makes sense not just for the environment but also financially, and replacing pump systems can make immediate differences, and returns on investments will be reached in a short time span that doesn’t exceed two years, after which the new systems will result in pure savings,” he added.


Notably, Grundfos offers a pump inspection service and an energy check report detailing current pump installation and potential savings. Energy costs can be improved by 50 per cent, and carbon dioxide emissions can be reduced by 30 per cent, along with achieving significant reduction over pump maintenance and repair costs.


Earlier this year; Grundfos introduced its iSolutions, which is an innovative response to the many inefficient, unreliable and outdated pumps and pump solutions in the market. Rather than focusing on just the pump, Grundfos iSolutions breaks new ground by focusing on the entire system, taking a holistic intelligent design approach that optimises the way the pumps, drives, controls, protection, and communication units all work together.


The Grundfos iSolutions ensures having the lowest overall life-cycle costs, and will be a major contributor to creating a more sustainable construction sector. With potential energy savings of up to 40 to 50 per cent and a more optimised use of water resources, construction industry decision-makers across the region now have smarter options to enhance their environmental and financial performance, as the march of infrastructural building continues.


Sandager concluded: “With the strengths that we enjoy in sustainability and energy saving, and now in waste management and pumps recycling, we will be able to play a bigger role in ensuring the achievement of development and progress, while working at the same time to preserve our planet’s precious resources. Simultaneously, we will be assisting the Middle East and the GCC countries in adopting approaches that aim to create a sustainable future for coming generations.”
