Water treatment for the chemical industry: Faced with growing competition, the chemicals industry is radically changing. It needs to achieve mass production and economies of scale in a market that is constantly evolving. Water is an important raw material in the field of basic chemistry. Efficient management of the industrial water cycle can affect production performance, operating costs and the environment at every site (which are often Seveso-classified and sometimes highly regulated). During site restructure, the longstanding operators of newly formed multi-partner chemical companies no longer have the resources to continue managing their utilities alone. They then look to delegate this area, so that they can refocus on their own core production activities. Managing water treatment facilities requires a high-level of expertise to deal with variable effluent quality and concentrations, while complying with stringent HSQE standards. Degrémont Industry particularly operates in the following chemicals sectors : Basic chemistry Speciality chemistry Petrochemical products, including solvents, paints, varnishes, inks and mastics, nitrogen products and fertilisers, synthetic rubbers, plastics, pesticides and agrochemical products, acids, adhesives, explosives, and artificial or synthetic fibres Find out more Find out about our solutions tailored to the needs of the chemicals industry.
