Treating and recycling waste produced by refineries in the United States is one of Veolia's new strengths in North America.


Solutions for the regeneration of sulphuric acid and sulphur gas from refining activities ensure their reuse as high-quality sulphuric acid or steam for use in various industrial activities. Veolia also regenerates sulphuric acid products sold to companies specializing in surfactants - which are found in soaps, detergents, hair care products and other daily care products. 

It will strengthen the Group's expertise in recycling and regeneration technologies in the oil and gas sector. Did you say chemist?
