SEPCON mission in the Ahrtal
The THW was on duty in the Ahr Valley with several local branches which are equipped with separation containers, SEPCON for short.
As a result of the flood disaster, huge amounts of heating oil were released through flooded basements, among other things.
Water treated by SEPCON with an oil content of < 15 ppm can be released back into the environment without hesitation.
A total of hundreds of tons of heating oil and other similar pollutants were separated.
A total of 9 SEPCON supplied by TECHNOMAR are ready for use throughout Germany.
