So many opportunities for sustainable effluent treatment, water treatment and water reuse! Because every drop counts! 💧💙

Visit an effluent treatment plant at ABInbev Alrode

After the formalities, we also took the opportunity to go visit the Waterleau project at ABInbev Alrode brewery, where we are constructing an extension to the existing Effluent treatment plant. This extension of 18tCOD/d anaerobic treatment will be operational by the end of the year.

This site is rapidly expanding to be one of the largest breweries in the southern hemisphere, and Waterleau is proud to be part of this journey.
