Responsabilidade Social

Social Responsibility

Water is an essential element for life, but access to potable water is not available to everyone. According to the World Health Organization and UNICEF, approx. 2.1 thousand million people do not have access to potable water at home.
Thus, we think it is our special duty to participate actively in this cause, providing potable water in regions in greatest need, donating mobile water purification units.
AST produces and operates purification and water treatment systems, particularly through membrane technology – such as ultrafiltration, nanofiltration, and reverse osmosis, tailor-made.
Our equipment is assembled in frameworks, trailers, or maritime containers to make transports easier. All functional tests are carried out in the plant, reducing the start-up time in the customer’s facilities. We offer you a turn-key solution!
To ensure that the equipment replacement is carried out without inconvenience to the customer, we also help dismount, recycle, and reuse the used equipment.
Being an OEM manufacturer, we have our stock of parts and consumables needed for operating the units, always available for our customers.
We provide financing and rental solutions that allow us to offer our partners the ideal solution for carrying out their projects.
To ensure our customers satisfaction and the best performance of the systems produced by us, we follow all its life cycle, providing technical support services, remote control, evaluation, process optimization, maintenance, and operation.
