Story in a nutshell
Vedani Group was founded in 1982: initially trading in foundry products, it then began producing chemicals for metallurgical treatment and mechanical components for the die-casting industry. In 2017 and 2019, the company received the Excellence Award for Italian SMEs.
List of customer requirements
- Treatment of process tailing water, rainwater and stormwater to prevent discharge outside the plant

- Cooling and condensation of vapors from production processes
Technologies supplied
- Filtrasand sand filter for treatment of tailings process water

- Floater for clarifying stormwater before sending to the treatment plant

- Biorulli(r) rotating biological contactors for biological treatment of water, from canteen and changing rooms, pre-spill into water bodies

Further specials
Evaporative towers MITA Cooling Technologies (partner of MITA Water Technologies within MITA Group) for cooling and condensing vapors from production processes.
Key to Success
- Different treatment technologies proposed for different stages of wastewater quality and for different internal processes
- Integrated offering for water cycle management: water treatment with MITA Water Technologies and water cooling with MITA Cooling Technologies (both part of MITA Group)

1. Context of installation

Vedani Group has been operating in the aluminum processing and metal treatment industry since 1982. Over time, it has faced challenges related to the significant growth in industrial production.

In 1995, the company had to manage two needs: the treatment of industrial wastewater and the cooling of vapors from production processes.

2. Proposed solutions

MITA Water Technologies, an expert in industrial wastewater treatment, responded to Vedani Group’s needs in 1995. They provided a complete package of process water and storm water treatment solutions. These solutions included:

  • Filtrasand sand filter: this filter was designed to treat process water from processing queues, ensuring effective purification.
  • Water clarification floater: a system implemented to treat stormwater before it is sent to the treatment plant, ensuring effective removal of impurities.
  • Biorulli® rotating biological contactors: the “biodiscs” are used for biological treatment of water from canteen and locker rooms in this case, as well as for pre-spillage into water bodies.

MITA Water Technologies therefore designed a complete system to handle Vedani Group’s various water treatment needs. This complemented the evaporative towers of MITA Cooling Technologies, a partner of MITA Water Technologies in MITA Group, for cooling and condensing the client company’s process fluids. The cooling section was then renovated in 2006.

3. Key factors of success

The implementation of water treatment solutions by MITA Water Technologies has led to several key successful outcomes:

  • Production efficiency: Efficient cooling of production processes has enabled Vedani Group to successfully manage the scaling up of aluminum production, ensuring adequate temperatures.
  • Environmental sustainability: With water treatment systems provided by MITA Water Technologies, Vedani Group was able to recover and reuse process water, contributing to environmental efficiency and sustainability.
  • Integrated offering: Indeed, a key success factor has been the integrated water management offering, including wastewater treatment and cooling, from “sister” companies MITA Water Technologies and MITA Cooling Technologies. The ability to provide a complete package of solutions has simplified the decision-making process for Vedani Group.

Some MITA projects

Biodiscs and Sand Filters for Coastal Depots of Esso

MITA Water Technologies provided ESSO Italiana with wastewater treatment solutions at the coastal depots in Naples and Palermo. Through the use of continuous regeneration sand filters and Biorulli(r) biodiscs, significant results were achieved, such as reduced energy consumption and maintenance costs, plant modularity, and compliance with current regulations.
