Protecting the environment with proven solutions
Everyone agrees, we can afford to take no chances with the environment. Rigorous environmental standards that are in force across the planet to control air, water and soil pollution in many industrial sectors place heavy demands on manufacturers.
Solvay has developed numerous sustainable technologies and solutions that industrial operators can rely on, and which all help to make the planet a cleaner, healthier and safer place to live.
At a time when the world is facing serious water shortages, Solvay INTEROX® and Capterall™enable water treatment facilities to reuse and recycle water. Capterall™ is a highly efficient, cost effective, easy to deploy and entirely non-toxic solution to capture a large range of heavy metals in wastewater.
Solef® PVDF and Veradel® PESU are widely used for ultrafiltration and microfiltration membranes to address water scarcity and waste water treatment, including tap water plant, Reverse Osmosis (RO) pretreatment, industrial and municipal membrane bio-reactors. RO membranes made from Udel® PSU reduce the cost of Sea Water Reverse Osmosis (SWRO), brackish water and industrial desalination, mining and zero liquid discharge. While membrane made from Halar® ECTFE can be used in harsher environment with heavier chemical wash.
