  • WEFTEC, the Water Environment Federation’s Annual Technical Exhibition and Conference, is the largest event in North America for water treatment solutions. Each year the most competent professionals from around the world show their expertise and the latest innovations.


    With Water Technologies & Solutions, created following the SUEZ acquisition of GE Water & Process Technologies effective from September 30th 2017, the group strengthens its world leader position on the market of water treatment solutions and technologies for industrials.


    SUEZ also launches new innovative technologies to address its industrial clients’ challenges by optimizing water treatment and reducing energy consumption. The Groups launches ozonia® M (the next generation of ozone system for water treatment), the FiltraFast™ solution (a unique compressible media filter) and Sievers InnovOx ES Laboratory TOC Analyzer to optimize organic carbon detection.


    Moreover, SUEZ announces that several USA municipalities (Dundee in Michigan, Fowler and Fulton in Georgia and North Texas District) will equip their wastewater treatment plant with ZeeWeed 500D membrane technology to expand plant treatment capacity, help meet stringent discharge requirements and reduce energy used to treat the wastewater.

      You’ll learn more about:
    • The latest Innovations from SUEZ
    • Integrated solutions for Municipal and Industrial wastewater treatment
    • Key offerings for digital solutions and lifecycle services
    • Important industry topics from SUEZ experts during technical mobile tours, and much more!
