ACO is a Water-Tech company that protects water. Building on our global drainage expertise that protects people from water, we increasingly see our mission as also protecting water from people.
With the ACO WaterCycle, ACO provides systems that collect and channel, clean, retain and ultimately reuse water. In this way, ACO contributes to the preservation of clean groundwater as a vital resource, and makes a contribution to tomorrow’s world. In its Agenda 2030, the UN global community set the improvement of water quality as one of 17 sustainable development goals.
Intelligent drainage systems from ACO increasingly use smart technology to ensure that rainwater and wastewater are drained, or temporarily stored. With innovative separation and filter technology, we prevent water contamination by pollutants such as fat and grease, fuels, heavy metals and microplastics. Today, ACO goes one step further: we accept the challenge of reusing water, and thus establishing a resource-saving cycle. For all products and systems, ACO attaches great importance to durability, reusability and a low carbon footprint. The pursuit of sustainability is an ongoing process that we strive to meet every day.
The ACO Group is a global family business that is one of the world market leaders in the Water-Tech segment.
