SIWW, Singapore, July 7, 2011 - (ACN Newswire) - Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies (VWS) is constructing a revolutionary wastewater treatment plant to reduce the environmental impact of L'Oreal's manufacturing facilities in Asia. VWS and L'Oreal, as leaders in their respective industries, are well poised to develop "Carbon and Water Conscious" solutions to address the issue of sustainability.
As part of L'Oreal's commitment towards "Great Citizen of the World", L'Oreal has been applying an environmentally conscious strategy in its manufacturing facilities worldwide. By collaborating with Veolia, a revolutionary wastewater treatment plant (Suzhou factory in China) which is optimally designed from a carbon and water footprint perspective has been build.
The technical solution implemented in this L'Oreal manufacturing site is based on the unique combination of VWS' two patented technologies (Biothane(R)Biobulk CSTR and Anoxkaldnes(TM)MBBR) and has contributed to achieve significant environmental results*:
- Reduction of energy consumption by 8.5%
- Sludge production reduced by 58% compared to the existing process
- Elimination of high concentrated liquid waste which is now treated in the wastewater treatment plant
- CO2 emissions related to transportable waste are reduced by 82%
As a result the total CO2 emissions of the wastewater treatment plant have been reduced by 43%.
This technical solution is designed for future production expansion, and to address future water challenges, a reclaim system could be implemented for the utilities of the manufacturing plant (Sanitary, Cooling system) to reduce the overall water consumption of the factory.
Mr. Yves Caouette, Executive Vice President, Industrial Marketing and Global Strategic Accounts, VWS said: "At VWS, we believe in actively pursuing strategies that deliver environmentally-conscious and innovative water technologies and solutions to meet the diverse needs of both industry and municipalities."
Veolia's range of technologies is dedicated to leverage the value of water & wastewater resources, ensuring that customers such as L'Oreal will have the best possible solutions to optimize their wastewater treatment installations, and thereby decreasing their environmental impact.
