Thinking cities in a new and sustainable way

Creating living space, converting land, densifying cities, developing sponge cities and smart cities: Anyone who wants to make cities fit for the future will find a strong partner in vacuum technology. The wastewater system can be flexibly tailored and continually adapted to the changing conditions and needs of the urban environment. Last but not least, vacuum technology forms the basis for innovative wastewater concepts that, thanks to source separation, conserve resources and recover them efficiently.

The cities of the future will benefit from this:

  • Flexibility with regard to expansion and laying: gradual expansion possible, adapted to development concept and budget
  • Short construction phase due to small pipe diameters
  • Sustainable wastewater system
  • Supports separation of material flows: recovery of energy and utilization of nutrients contained in wastewater
  • House connections and commercial connections possible

“Hamburg Jenfeld shows what is possible with our technology. Already in the buildings, we separate the resources, then feed them via a vacuum sewer network to the mechanical plant and treat them for further use. Extremely complex calculations and highly intelligent linkages – but it's been successful and the system has worked from the start.”
