Maximum performance in Scotland for the Ineos Grangemouth refinery

Since 2003, Degrémont Industry, acting through Ondeo IS, has been operating the process water production and wastewater treatment installations at the Ineos refinery in Grangemouth.

The water-intensive site (over 55,000 m³/day) uses a complex array of water and effluent treatment systems.

After setting up a 20-year contract, Degrémont Industry has carried out a number of actions in a bid to improve and enhance the water cycle, with all gains shared by both parties:

  • Environmental protection and compliance.
  • Improved reliability of water supply.
  • Reuse and reduction in wastewater discharge by 2.5 million litres/day.
  • Development and delivery of an environmental management system that exceeds stringent requirements.

This partnership has helped Ineos achieve annual savings of over €7 million.
