  • New design and build contracts


Our focused approach and in-depth knowledge ensures a high safety standard, compliance with environmental requirements, high reliability and long-term cost effectiveness. Our goal is to fulfil the most demanding requirements of the chemical industry.

Each technical solution we offer is tailored to:

  • Meet the production requirements of our clients - whether large volume or multipurpose production, new plant, facility upgrade or production expansion
  • Comply with our clients' process effluent characteristics such as hydraulic load, organic/inorganic load, priority substances, toxicity, hazardous/cross-media effects, temperature or pH


Large quantities of high-quality water are required to manufacture the cells used in microelectronic and photovoltaic systems.

Veolia Water Technologies, as the world leader in water and wastewater treatment, is a partner of choice for these industries. From packaged plants to turnkey installations and long-term operating services, we offer cost-effective water treatment solutions for Greenfield sites, facility expansions and plant upgrades.

For example, Veolia has developed a compact and modular engineered system able to recover coolant used for ingot slicing with a Diamond Wire Saw system. Highly efficient, this chemical-free packaged solution created specifically for photovoltaic applications achieves a coolant recovery rate of 80%, which can rise to 90% when combined with membranes.
