Mechanical and Biological Waste Water Treatment Facilities
Biological waste water treatment facilities were constructed in the Terminal in 2005. They supplemented the existing pretreatment and mechanical waste water treatment facilities. Now all waste waters, i.e. domestic, rain water, sewerage, collected in the Company are treated here.
The unique biological treatment technology employed for waste water treatment guarantees the quality of water discharged into open water basins satisfying the normative requirements of the European Union.
Besides the Company takes in ballast and bilge waters from all vessels calling at the terminals of Klaipeda Seaport.
