Water is one of the most common elements on earth. 70 % of the earth's surface is covered with ice or liquid water. Still, of this enormous mass (estimated at 1,3 billion cubic kilometers) only a very small part is available for human consumption. Households, agriculture and industry use large quantities of water that inevitably becomes polluted. In addition, the world's population and economy continue to grow, and hence also the water consumption, the need to clean polluted water, as well as the need to produce more potable water increases.
Waterleau develops and supplies technologies to clean polluted water, as well as technologies to purify water to drinking water quality or to make process water for the industry. For every problem of water treatment, Waterleau will find the most appropriate solution, not only from the technical or ecological point of view but also from the economic point of view.
Estimates suggest that nearly 1,5 billion people lack safe drinking water and that at least 5 million deaths per year can be attributed to waterborne diseases. Waterleau has in-house experience and know-how with many state-of-the-art water purification technologies. Many filtering or other methods have been used over the years, but in recent years innovative systems based on membranes have been developed.
Waterleau integrates these membranes in total solution packages for its clients.
Sludge is an end-product of wastewater treatment. This sludge needs further treatment before it can be used as a product or be disposed off. A wide variety of processes are available to reduce sludge volume and alter sludge properties prior to disposal or use of the treated product.
One can distinguish volume reduction processes, stabilization processes, and thermal destruction processes. Waterleau has developed and engineered technology in each of these three fields.
Human activity, at home as well as in the industry not only pollutes air, water and soil but also creates increasing amounts of waste. Nevertheless, in spite of all efforts (recycling, reuse, ...) there will always be waste products of industrial activities and households. This residual waste will have to be treated as much as possible in a clean, safe and environment-friendly way.
Waterleau has developed proprietary technology to treat any waste stream thermally. It is of prime importance to select the correct technology for each waste type. Waterleau offers a complete set of thermal treatment systems for all kinds of solid, liquid and gaseous waste streams.
Air is omnipresent and intangible. Still we notice quickly when the air we breathe is polluted. Air and gas can be polluted by various substances and choosing the appropriate technology is project specific. These air pollutants need to be removed before discharge into the atmosphere is possible or allowed.
Waterleau offers a wide range of solutions for air and gas treatment problems, based on knowhow acquired from Monsanto. The centre of competence for air treatment is Waterleau France, a specialist team of experienced people which used to operate under the name Socrematic.
We all know that energy - just like clean water and clean air - is a limited natural resource and that we are consuming it at a too high rate. Still, the world energy consumption keeps increasing. Fossil fuels today still are the most important energy source. The excessive consumption of fossil fuels is one of the most important causes of the greenhouse effect which threatens to create dramatic climate changes worldwide. Renewable energy is part of the answer.
Waterleau is developing installations that produce energy from biomass, one of the most important renewable energy sources. In addition, many waste streams also contain important quantities of biomass, which means that thermal waste treatment can help solve the energy problem.
