    Flexibility with continuous improvement

    Wastewater TreatmentProcess Water Treatment We optimize the quality and the reliability of the purified water produced for your utilities. We provide:

    Complete water treatment systems from pretreatment to purified water distribution

    Alternative water sources through recycling or seawater desalination

    Cooling tower water treatment systems, make-up water and blowdown treatment systems

    Process Water for boiler feed water and steam generator applications

    Condensate treatment for reuse

    Water production for diluting, dissolving and hydrolysis

    Pure and ultrapure water production

    Each technical solution we offer is tailored to: Meet your production requirements whether large volume or multipurpose production, organic or inorganic chemicals, facility upgrade or production expansion Comply with your process effluent characteristics such as hydraulic load, organic/inorganic load, priority substances, toxicity, hazardous/cross-media effects, temperature or pH

    We provide: Improved and guaranteed environmental compliance

    Cost-effective solutions such as segregation and selective pretreatment, joint pre-treatment platform for wastewater, anaerobic treatment and biogas energy recovery

    Increased focus on your core business by managing side-stream activities such as groundwater reclamation or phosphogypsum stack leachates treatment

  • Veolia Water provides you with tailor-made water and wastewater management solutions. Our focused approach and in-depth knowledge ensures a high standard of safety, compliance with environmental requirements, high reliability and long-term cost-effectiveness to fulfill the most demanding HSE requirements.

    Our unique portfolio of differentiating technologies includes desalination, cooling water, process water, ultrapure water, wastewater, solids treatments and evaporation-crystallization. With over 600 patents and our world-renowned Research and Development Center, Anjou Recherche, we provide innovative water solutions and services.

    Letting us worry about your water treatment requirements will allow you to focus on your core business and maximize efficiency.

    Premium Chemical ProductionCoping with Water Shortages Veolia Water helps you cope with water shortages using alternative resources.

    We deliver desalination solutions:

    Using treated wastewater, brackish water or seawater instead of potable water

    Combining customized pretreatment (ActifloTM, MBR, conventional and pressurized filtration) and desalination units (multi-effect distillation and/or reverse osmosis)

    With experienced operators and maintenance services that optimize the reliability of the plants

    Water recycling can increase your profitability and reduce your effluent volumes by:

    Reclaiming treated wastewater, rainwater, cooling tower blowdown, condensates for reuse on site or for landscape irrigation

    Using reclaimed municipal water as an alternative supply during drought conditions

    Relying on our experience of over 100 recycling projects around the world

    Fully-integrated evaporation and crystallization systems for the production of premium chemical products, recovery of valuable by-products and reclamation of treated wastewater are our specialties:

    Chlor-Alkali such as high purity brine treatment, sodium and potassium hydroxide concentration systems and sodium chlorate crystallization

    Fertilizer such as crystallization of potash and potassium carbonate, potassium and sodium nitrate, ammonium sulfate, phosphoric acid and MAP-DAP

    Salt such as high-purity sodium chloride crystallization, calcium chloride concentration, high purity brine treatment

    Soda Ash such as pretreatment system for solution-mined natural ores, sodium carbonate and bicarbonate crystallization, purge minimization and alkali recovery

    Specialty Chemicals such as herbicides, amino acids, synthetic sweeteners, ibuprofen, bisphenol-A, metabisulfite and thiocyanate

    Our solution: aligning our resources to meet your needs

    By-Product Recovery Residuals Management Treating waste streams for recycling or to create valuable co-products is a vital factor in a chemical plant's cost optimization.

    We develop tailor-made plant applications to meet your requirements using our crystallization and membrane technologies for:

    Recovery of valuable solids from carbonate, acids and inorganic salts such as CaF2 from fluoride and white gypsum from sulfate Regeneration of effluent such as KOH from ‘spent’ KF, NaOH and caustic recovery in spent liquor Salts: purifying sodium sulfate from chromium, high-purity sodium chloride and high-purity brine treatment

    Safety, traceability, odor control, volume reduction, landfill authorization and cost, and energy recovery have all become major factors in the processing of solids generated by the chemical industry.

    In response to these challenges Veolia Water has developed, tested and implemented durable cost-effective solutions:

    Organic solids are energy sources (biogas), which can be used to produce heat and/or electrical power in your facilities Inorganic salts are treated by our crystallization technology with the objective of reducing volume and increasing dryness in order to maximize the recycling process and/or optimize the disposal costs
