Industrial water and waste treatment

Turn waste into value

Most industrial processes generate waste streams that need to be treated or disposed of, and many companies face tough requirements. The ability to treat waste and reduce the amount for disposal is therefore key to keep the license to operate and to extend capacity. Alfa Laval offers a variety of solutions for on-site water and waste treatment plus recovery of water, heat and even products from your process.

Why on-site water and waste treatment?

  • Recover valuable resources from main process
  • Minimize water consumption by reusing treated wastewater
  • Minimize waste for disposal
  • Cost-efficient production
  • Reduce environmental footprint

Alfa Laval helps reduce your environmental footprint from water and waste streams, by maximizing reuse of water, by turning waste to value, and by minimizing energy consumption and waste – time and time again!

Reduce your environmental footprint

All human, commercial and industrial activities produce waste products that are harmful to our environment unless treated. The world is therefore constantly on the look-out for ways to reduce pollution, provide clean water, use less energy and recycle energy already used. With growing populations and living standards plus water scarcity in many areas, there is also an increasing need for water reuse.

Wastewater treatment

Industrial wastewater varies considerably in specification, depending on type of industry and local habits. In many cases it is not accepted by the municipal wastewater treatment plant, so pre-treatment or complete on-site treatment is needed. Alfa Laval offers several compact, easy-to-operate wastewater treatment technologies that produce clean effluent either for discharge or further treatment for water reuse.
