Suez Water Technologies & Solutions – Anaerobic Digester

Turn Waste to Energy with Advanced Anaerobic Digestion

Company Description:

On March 8, 2017, GE announced it has signed a definitive agreement to sell its Water & Process Technologies business to SUEZ, a global services and solutions company with operations primarily in water and waste management. On October 2, 2017, SUEZ finalized the acquisition of GE Water & Process Technologies.

 

As a strategic business partner, SUEZ offers the most comprehensive set of chemical and equipment solutions and services available, helping our customers manage and optimize their water resources and process challenges across industries and municipalities.

 

It is our goal to enable our customers to meet increasing water demands and population needs, overcome scarcity challenges, enhance their environmental stewardship and comply with regulatory requirements.

 

SUEZ provides the advanced technologies that enable customers to leverage big data across the industrial internet to drive efficiency and promote collaboration. We partner with our customers to help them reduce costs and prepare for the evolving demands of their industry.

Technology Description:

Designed to recycle biosolids and biowaste into me-thane and valuable byproducts, SUEZ’s Monsal advanced digestion (AD) technologies use bacteria in the absence of oxygen to break down matter to create biogas. The biogas can be combusted or oxidized and used for heating or with a gas engine to produce electricity and heat; it can also be compressed and used as fuel for vehicles or as a fertilizer.   SUEZ’s advanced AD processes provide customers with:  

  • Full system approach: All components of the advanced AD process, including desludging, mixing, heat exchanges, and pre-treatment, are designed to work as one system to help increase efficiency and minimize energy costs.
  • Optimal energy balance to maximize system yield and performance: Creating a system that produces the same, or more, energy than it requires allows customers to significantly lower operating costs and minimize waste in the overall sludge processing stage.
  • Mixing equipment that achieves >90% active volume in sludge digesters: By creating a larger active area in the sludge digesters, the systems enable the customer to produce the same amount of biogas within a smaller footprint.
  • Smart heat exchangers designed for thick sludge: Special designed heat exchangers pro-mote a steady state temperature within the digester, leading to better system control and increased yields of gas.
  Anaerobic treatment opportunities will continue to expand worldwide as municipalities and food waste producers look to reduce the environment impact, increase operational efficiency and drive down costs.   Providing customers with a cost effective, relatively low maintenance way to turn food waste and sewage sludge into electricity, SUEZ Water Technologies & Solutions helps companies get one step closer to energy neutrality.
