Our Water Solutions in Summary


Desalination from Veolia South Africa encompasses ranges of desalination process, technologies and chemicals, all tailored to meet specific desalination requirements. Full-scale desalination plants and desalination package plants facilitate these processes, which produce either process water for industry or potable water for municipalities and industry. Our methods and processes all for both seawater desalination and brackish water desalination.

Zero Liquid Discharge

Zero Liquid Discharge, or ZLD as it is commonly referred to, enables the recovery, recycle and re-use from water used in industrial processes. It helps industrial plants minimise their environmental impact and is an effective way of managing a plant’s water requirements. ZLD is used for numerous applications from cooling tower blowdown and boiler blowdown to produced water, oil refinery effluent and radioactive waste, as well as landfill leachate.

Package Plants

Used by companies for industrial water treatment, and municipalities for potable water treatment, package plants, also called modular or containerised plants, they are ideal for municipal areas where conventional infrastructure is not available and for remote sites and industrial locations. They take up less space than conventional water treatment plants and contain fewer moving parts. This means a highly reliable, cost-effective, transportable water treatment plant.

Trickling Filter Technology

Trickling filters are used in full scale wastewater treatment plants and small scale package plants to treat domestic sewage high in organic matter and pollutants. The process can upgrade sewage for re-use in irrigation or to near potable standards, and it also ensures that all water discharged is compliant with local and international environmental standards. Veolia is the leader in trickling filter technology in southern Africa.
