Research & Development
With more than $100 million euros committed to research and technology each year, SUEZ Environnement boasts one of the largest water-related Research and Development budgets of any private Organisation in the world.
The company's research efforts span the entire water cycle, from the protection and management of resources to drinking water production and the collection, treatment and re-use of wastewater.
Degrémont and its clients directly benefit from this commitment to research and development with technical experts from the company's research arm regularly providing support to our operational plants and assisting in development areas.
Degrémont's strong relationships and partnerships with more than 80 universities and industrial research centers worldwide strengthens its research domain providing access to new technologies and methodologies.
The research program has been designed to meet four key requirements:
- The needs of consumers and clients.
- Achieving new public health and environment regulations, to adhere to the principle of sustainable development.
- Constraining the investment and operation costs.
- The ever-increasing scale and diversity of technical demands.
Degrémont is currently working with the Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) and its clients on a number of projects and research programs
