SUEZ runs wastewater treatment plants in India which are substantially energy self-sufficient. To cut down on its Operation & Maintenance costs and add to the power availability in the city, these plants meet a majority of its power demand by captive biogas-based power generation engines, thus running on clean energy and reducing air pollution caused due to the discharge of Methane in the environment.
The Wazirabad Recycling Water Treatment Plant, in New Delhi, inaugurated in 2010, uses advanced technologies to treat the wastewater of the sludge, produced by another drinking water production plant and make it fit for human consumption. Because of this, an additional 50 000 m3 per day of water, is pumped into Delhi's distribution system, benefiting more than half a million people, especially residents of the Burari area in North Delhi.
