Veolia Services Southern Africa ("Veolia'') has over 20 years worth of experience in the design and implementation of water treatment solutions and plants for niche industrial markets both in South Africa and across broader Africa as well. We aim to assist industrial markets with optimisation of their process water production and introduce efficient wastewater treatment technologies that are sustainable and cost-effective. Potentially, this can include the option to recycle wastewater for reuse, thus providing an on-going alternative source of feed water, ultimately contributing to lower production costs.

Furthermore, these water treatment solutions provide the opportunity to responsibly manage all wastewater, only discharging water that is safe for the environment, effectively minimising the environmental impact.


With specific industries, or markets, precise technologies that are tailored to meet unique requirements, has allowed Veolia to categorize the very broad group of solutions for industrial water & wastewater treatment into eight niche markets.

Niche markets for Veolia’s industrial water treatment solutions:

  • Automotive plants
  • Food and beverage
  • Mining
  • Petrochemical
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Power plants
  • Pulp and paper
  • Steel processing

Veolia experts from around the world have developed a wide range of digital technologies for industry that have achieved consistent, desired results across the various industrial markets.


Automotive plant water treatment solutions

These types of technologies make use of methods such as micro filtration, reverse osmosis and ultrafiltration so automotive plants can supply reusable water, achieve zero liquid discharge (ZLD) and produce quality end products.

Food and beverage 

Using multimedia and membrane filtration, activated carbon filtration and UV disinfection, Veolia assists food and beverage plants to manage water as a food ingredient as well as for industrial use. These result in a dependable feed water source, reusable water supply, ZLD and quality end products.

Mine water and wastewater 

Mine process water treatment from Veolia treats process water, mine sludge and enables the re-use of process wastewater and extraction of valuable minerals from wastewater streams. This involves technologies for pre-treatment, filtration, desalination and process mine water treatment. A huge contributing factor and important treatment for mines is acid mine drainage (AMD), for which Veolia is able to provide tailor-made solutions. 


These specialised water treatment solutions are designed to aid the oil and gas industry with minimising its environmental impact, reduce production costs, optimise production processes and refine higher quality products. Key technologies range from primary oil/water separation to sludge treatment and disposal.


Producing highly purified water, pyrogenic-free water and water for injection is the hallmark of pharmaceutical water treatment solutions from Veolia. All our pharmaceutical water treatment systems comply with the numerous requirements, including that of the FDA, and technologies used range from multimedia filters to continuous deionising and reverse osmosis.

Power plant water treatment solutions

Boiler feed water and cooling water production, water chemical conditioning, effluent treatment and water reuse are gained when using Veolia water treatment solutions for power plants. Water treatment systems include everything from feed water pre-treatment to wastewater recycling and re-use, with comprehensive key technologies tailored for power plants.

Pulp and paper water treatment solutions

Key technologies for pulp and paper water treatment from Veolia treat raw water to process water, treat black liquors, remove chloride and potassium, recover fibre and much more. These technologies supply reusable water and aim to achieve ZLD, while manufacturers reduce production costs and improve profitability.

Steel processing water treatment solutions

For reduced raw water intake, water safe for discharge, reuse water and water used in production processes in steel processing, Veolia is able to provide the appropriate technologies as well. Solutions using clarification through to crystallisation and zero liquid discharge are able to provide plants with managing their environmental impact, reduce production costs and produce higher grade end products.
