Process optimization and water treatment

About 20 % of fresh water consumed worldwide is being used by industry amounting to approx. 800 ckm (cubic kilometers) per year. In general, more than 50% of this water is used for generating electricity or cooling power plants.

Industries with high water consumption are e.g. the chemical industry, the metal, wood, pulp and paper industry or the food industry. However, this global water consumption for industrial purposes is expected to further increase. Reason is the growing industrialization process in developing countries.

Our industrial water experts understand the requirements of the various industry branches and know how to efficiently reduce the water footprint and to treat and reuse water.
