Veolia to provide water purification technology for Danone Nutricia’s Wuxi plant

Veolia Water Technologies China Industrial is supplying a turnkey solution for water purification at Nutricia Pharmaceutical Co Ltd’s (Danone Nutricia) plant in Wuxi, China.

The Veolia turnkey solution will include a 15 ton/hr reverse osmosis (RO) system, combined with a multimedia filter, softener, activated carbon filter and continuous electrodeionisation (CEDI) technologies.

The Veolia technologies will allow Danone Nutricia to expand the purified water capacity at its Wuxi plant by up to 88% and save over 85 000 cubic metres of water each year.

The project is expected to be completed by January 2018.

Danone and Veolia formed an alliance in December 2015 to optimize the management of natural resources. The strategic partnership covers all aspects of the water cycle, waste management, sustainable agriculture and energy efficiency.
