Infilco Degremont, GEA Process Join for Zero Liquid Discharge

SUEZ Environnement affiliate Infilco Degremont, Inc. and GEA Process Engineering Inc. have agreed to merge their proprietary technologies to develop system solutions for zero-liquid discharge applications for the U.S. and Canadian markets.

Infilco Degremont’s industrial water and wastewater treatment expertise for physical-chemical clarification and water softening, coupled with reverse osmosis technology provided by another Suez Environnement affiliate, WPT - Anderson Water Systems, Inc. to remove both suspended and dissolved solids, will provide the necessary pretreatment solution for GEA’s evaporator-crystallizer sub-system expertise. Using this technology, the concentrated reject from reverse osmosis is evaporated until the dissolved solids supersaturate and begin to form solid crystals. The slurry of crystals is then dewatered and the resulting filtrate recycled completely within the system.

"Industries and communities alike are having an increasingly difficult time meeting ever more stringent regulations that require single digit parts per trillion effluent concentrations. Simply eliminating the discharge altogether is a compelling solution." said Shyam Bhan, chief executive officer of Degremont North America.

On behalf of GEA Process Engineering Inc., President Steve Kaplan said "We chose to team with Infilco Degremont not only because of their extensive North American and global presence, but also because their corporate culture and ethics very closely mirrored our own."
