Automobile manufacturers, their suppliers and industries in the metallurgical sector in general have four main objectives:

  • quality products;
  • reducing costs;
  • respecting the environment;
  • maintaining good labour relations on production sites.
 Veolia supports automotive manufacturers in achieving these objects through  innovative technologies and cost-effective services covering every stage of the water cycle in the automobile industry:
  • Permanent, temporary or emergency plants to supply demineralised or RO permeate water for surface treatment;
  • Treatment of oil-water emulsions using membranes or evaporation techniques;
  • Treatment of factory waste including recycling methods that aim to achieve "zero liquid discharge" (ZLD);
  • Complete management of the water cycle, systems, biological wastewater treatment plants...;
  • Global agreements to build and operate new facilities;
  • Consideration of possible social impact.
