Do You Know Your True Cost Of Water?

Veolia Water Technologies is one of the top water
treatment companies in South Africa offering the full range of water
purification systems, including industrial water treatment systems and
municipal water treatment.

Making sure you have the best water treatment system in place will help you drive down operational costs and improve availability.

As a total water treatment company, our approach focuses maximising efficiency across the water treatment cycle; ensuring availability; and mitigating the risk of costly water disruptions, based on a holistic understanding of the role of water in your operation.

For industry, this considers what bottom-line costs would be in the event of an interruption to production, either because of feed water problems that cause plant processes to shut down, or, in terms of discharge issues that may contravene environmental regulations and force a shutdown.

Solutions might range from re-evaluating operations and maintenance, expanding existing infrastructure, or looking internally at how water can be reused or used more efficiently.

For municipal water treatment companies and utility boards, Veolia can help alleviate overburdened infrastructure by ensuring treatment equipment and processes are optimised for maximum efficiency, safety and performance and reduced environmental impact. This means increased wellbeing for our communities while protecting our natural heritage.
