There is a special attraction in the Spreewelten adventure pool in Lübbenau. You can compete with penguins, only separated by a glass pane. To make the experience even more attractive, the penguin pool will be enlarged and a longer pane between people and penguins will be installed.
In the future, W.E.T. ultrafiltration will ensure hygiene in the penguin pool. The salt water is first coarsely pre-cleaned via a drum filter and then treated via ultrafiltration so that the birds feel comfortable and stay healthy.

Elephant park in Zurich Zoo
The Kaeng Krachan Elephant Park in Zurich Zoo is home to Asian elephants. During construction, great importance was attached to sustainability, which is why water is recycled. W.E.T. supplied an ultrafiltration system to treat the wastewater from the rinsing of the water treatment for the basins. Five thousand litres of wastewater per hour are treated to such an extent that they can be used instead of fresh water to rinse the gravel filters.
Clean water for the polar bears at Copenhagen Zoo
Copenhagen Zoo has built a new enclosure with a large swimming pool for the polar bears. The animals can now be observed swimming and diving in an underwater tunnel. The water for the pool is kept clean by drum filters and protein separators. To improve the visibility under water, so that the polar bears can be seen well by the visitors, an ultrafiltration system of the W.E.T. removes fine turbidities in the partial stream. The plant also processes the rinsing waste water produced in the drum filter in order to feed it back into the tank.
