Conecsus de México S.A. de C.V., an industrial wastewater treatment innovator in México, recently was awarded a coveted México Technology Award for successfully applying their latest and best advanced technologies for the purification of residual industrial wastewater. The award was presented on Wednesday, Oct 23 at the Westin Guadalajara, prior to the SMTA Guadalajara Expo & Technical Forum.

Conecsus de México S.A. de C.V. was launched by parent company Conecsus LLC, a sophisticated green recycler and refiner of SMT solder/solder paste wastes and residues for the SMT electronics manufacturing industry. The México Technology Awards acknowledge the latest innovations available in México produced by OEM manufacturing equipment and materials suppliers over the previous 12 months.

The award for Conecsus, in the Environmental Systems or Services category, recognizes their work that applies the latest and best technology and physicochemical treatment methodology available to its processes for the purification of residual industrial wastewater at their new industrial wastewater recycling enterprise in Villa de Reyes, San Luis Potosí (SLP), México.

In making the announcement, Operations Director Gilberto Cifuentes said, “We are pleased and proud to receive this award and recognition of our efforts to bring clean and safely treated water to our neighbors in Mexican industry. Our enterprise has all the required authorizations to operate, plus state-of-the-art equipment for the collection and transportation of water to the plant. Water is treated with the best available technology, as well as the traceability and logistics systems necessary for the proper management of effluents and to meet the individual, specialized needs of each and every client.”

Cifuentes added, “Our new Wastewater Treatment (WWT) facility holds a hazard permit and has the support of the Mexican government. It offers different choices to its clients in managing the residual water as hazard, non-hazard and even as a third option as a residual water being treated not as a waste but as a resource to be decontaminated. Also, the plant is innovating with technologies including advanced oxidation, enzymes processes and different distillation methods that are top world class technologies, in order to fulfill not only legal requirements but to meet even the highest national and international standards.”
