Creating new water resources
As the population grows and urbanization continues, the pressure on water resources has increased. We’re addressing this by developing innovative solutions, like the reuse of urban and industrial wastewater, desalination, etc.
Preserving our water resources
Reducing the environmental footprint
SUEZ has over 70 years of global experience of partnering with the local authorities in creating a robust urban wastewater treatment and management infrastructure. With over 40 years of its operation in India, and understanding of local conditions and needs, the authorities trust SUEZ's expertise in tackling the challenges of increasing wastewater in India and transforming it to a new resource.
Transforming wastewater into use
SUEZ implemented its ULTRAFOR® MBR technology, with submerged vacuum driven ultrafiltration membranes, sourced from SUEZ Water Technologies and Solutions. A SCADA system was installed to fully automated operation, monitoring, and control. Thanks to our in-house expertise in operation and maintenance and knowledge, the membranes' lifecycle was extended by 30%, over and above of what was guaranteed by the membrane manufacturer.
The capacity of Cubbon Park STP has been recently upgraded from 1.5 to 4 MLD due to high demand for recycled water from government buildings.
Reusing municipal wastewater for power generation
The 10 MLD Delhi Gate Nallah and SNH Nalla Wastewater Treatment Plant are built with SUEZ Densadeg® Clarifier and Biofor® Biofiltration technology on less than 2.5 acres swampy and waterlogged piece of land where no other contemporary technology would fit. In 2005, SUEZ commissioned these plants. Today, these two plants are the workhorses for 330 MW Pragati Power Station, continuously supplying over 20 MLD of high quality treated effluent as Cooling Towers Makeup Water and raw water to DM Water production unit for Steam Turbines. SUEZ operates and maintains the plants.
Solving the toughest water challenges for industries
Industries use a significant amount of water in day-to-day processes. With increasing enforcement and tightening of discharge regulations, they are seeking the most advanced technologies to use alternative water resources and move towards improved water management approach that can help them overcome water-related risks that would impact their operations and growth strategies. They are aiming at a paradigm shift in their water resource management and strengthen their resilience to water-related challenges and risks.
Our mission is to enable our customers to meet increasing water demands, overcome scarcity challenges, enhance their environmental stewardship and comply with regulatory requirements.
How we helped Tata Chemicals Mithapur plant maintain production
Unable to get fresh water, Tata Chemicals plant was faced with two scenarios - shutting down production or finding an alternative source for their water needs. Tata Chemicals turned to SUEZ for the solution. SUEZ evaluated the options and recommended a flexible Outsourced Water Services Agreement where SUEZ would provide fresh water from the only available water source – seawater.
The solution consists of a seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) system for the production water needs and an additional brackish water reverse osmosis (BWRO) system for the demineralization plant. SUEZ’s outsourced water projects provide customers with little or no capital expenditure, reduced operating costs, and improved technical performance.
