To secure fresh water intake to your process, different types of treatment can be needed. Some of these also generate a waste stream. Alfa Laval offers a number of solutions to help you deal with this in an efficient and sustainable way. Examples include water for cooling towers, process water preparation and treatment of waste from reverse osmosis.
