Achievements

Kuwait
For the Az Zour North plant, delivered in 2016, Veolia chose thermal desalination, a process also known as multi-effect distillation (MED). The unit is capable of producing 486,500 m3 of desalinated water per day.
China
Double the production capacity of the Hedong wastewater treatment plant operated by Veolia, which collects the wastewater of nearly 1.5 million inhabitants, and introduce a sludge treatment system.
Belgium
Fully renovate the heating plant by installing two CHP engines and converting the steam heating system into a hot water heating system. Implement an intelligent flow management and operating system to measure energy savings.
UK
Design and build a biomass-fired heating network for the largest dairy group in the UK. It must be able to supply the 100 000 tonnes of steam required for the processes (pasteurisation and drying) used to make 55 000 tonnes of cheese every year.
Denmark
Aquavista™ Plant manages the wastewater collection system and the three treatment plants in real time based on the weather to avoid saturation.
Germany
Install a district heating network that runs on renewable energy. Launched by BS Energy, a Veolia Germany subsidiary, the Hungerkamp plant replaces 34 coal and oil-fired burners with a cogeneration plant, a wood-fired boiler and a natural gas-fired boiler, as well as two heat storage units.
Hungary
Convert a major heat and electricity production plant that was initially gas-fired to cogeneration and transform it into the largest European fully biomass-fired (straw and wood) heating network.
France
Recover the calories in wastewater through the proprietary Energido® process. By capturing unavoidable energy produced by urban facilities in the vicinity of the equipment (wastewater collection systems), fossil fuels can be replaced by renewable resources from a permanent (wastewater) rather than intermittent energy source (solar, wind, etc.).
Namibia
Produce drinking water for the city directly from domestic wastewater which is a solution that covers about 35 % of the needs of the city and its suburbs and also addresses chronic water shortages in the region.
