Creating water treatment solutions for the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries
In the pharmaceutical industry, water is most commonly used in liquid form, not only as an ingredient in many formulations but also as a cleaning agent. Production of purified water, highly purified water, pyrogen-free water and water for injection to international pharmaceutical standards is widely recognized as a critical process. Understanding ours client’s needs, we developed efficient water purifying systems.
We provide water that reliably meets the highest pharmacological quality standards. Customer safety is uppermost in the minds of our clients and we share their commitment. We are committed to providing highly efficient water solutions that perform well. Our compact systems have an edge where space is at a premium. We can usually deploy technical solutions flexibly and at short notice.
We also focus on value, providing a range of mobile systems that enhance the productivity of existing plant with minimal capital expenditure.
Realising the importance of supply reliability, our 24/7 national service team supports our water technologies; we work to guaranteed response times for incidents and support client staff through training.

CASE STUDY: Veolia technologies provide pure water for injection
At Pharmaxis, Veolia technology removes suspended solids, chlorine and distiller, transforming Sydney town water into Water For Injection.
By combining multimedia filtration, activated carbon, reverse osmosis and continuous de-ionisation we produce water that meets the European Pharmacopoeia standard.
CASE STUDY: Reliable treatment for disposal into a sensitive environment
In Sweden, Astra Zeneca relies on Veolia technology and service to treat highly toxic wastewater containing organic compounds from pharmaceutical production.
We detoxify the water, removing 97% of organic compounds, including 80% or nitrogen and 99% of phosporous. Microfungi process 1,800 m/day, removing 440 kilograms of organic compounds and making the water safe for discharge into an environmentally sensitive area.
CASE STUDY: Reducing energy use and emissions with Veolia technology
Veolia is providing a German Roche Diagnostics wastewater treatment plant with technology to lower energy requirements and reduce carbon emissions.
Veolia plant biologically pre-treats partial wastewater flows rich in carbon and biologically degradable liquid waste. Our 480 m3 Biobed EGSB reactor captures biogas, which is used to reduce the Roche plant's external energy requirements by 90% and cut carbon dioxide emissions by about 950 metric tons per year.
