Recent Developments in Biological Wastewater Treatment Market

  1. In 2019, Suez was awarded a contract by the Filanc Black & Veatch JV (FBV). It selected SUEZ’s LEAPmbr technology because it produces superior water quality, ensures reliability and value, and fits within a small footprint. In the FBV design, the MBR effluent will be further treated using reverse osmosis membranes and an advanced oxidation process before being injected into the aquifer. The new facility will treat one million gallons of wastewater per day.
  2. In 2018, Veolia signed a contract with the Paris government for wastewater and urban stormwater management throughout the area covered by the Métropole (Martignas-sur-Jalle excepted). The contract covers the management of six wastewater treatment plants with a total capacity of 1,156,400 population equivalents, with 4,200 km of wastewater, and urban stormwater networks for 275,000 users.
  3. In 2018, Aquatech International was awarded a contract for a new wastewater treatment plant for Fulcrum Bioenergy, a biorefinery plant in the US. Aquatech will supply a forced circulation crystallizer and a demineralization system. Aquatech will act as the Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) and Operations and Maintenance (O&M) on the construction of the project. The project is expected to be completed in 2019.
  4. In 2017, Evoqua Water Technologies LLC acquired ADI Systems (US) from ADI Group Inc. (US), a wastewater solutions company serving industrial and manufacturing sectors.

Veolia (France) is one of the leading players in the biological wastewater treatment market and has been adopting inorganic & organic strategies to sustain its market position. For instance, in 2018, Veolia signed a contract with the government of Paris for wastewater and urban stormwater management throughout the area covered by the Métropole (except Martignas-sur-Jalle). The contract covers the management of 6 wastewater treatment plants with a total capacity of 1,156,400 population equivalent, with 4,200 km of wastewater and urban stormwater networks for 275,000 users. In 2016, Saudi Aramco, a state-owned oil company of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia chose Veolia to design and deliver a wastewater treatment plant for the Jazan refinery and terminal. The wastewater treatment plant designed and delivered by Veolia will provide biological treatment (1,000 m3 / h), oily water treatment, and metal removal (550 m3 / h) for the complex power plant, with a capacity of 4,000 MW. Saudi Aramco will also use several of its advanced patented technologies in these treatments.

Omya AG (Switzerland) is another major company in the biological wastewater treatment market. It has been adopting organic and inorganic strategies to sustain its position in the market. For instance, in 2019, SYVAB, a local authority that operates a large wastewater treatment plant in the suburbs of Stockholm, awarded a contract to Suez for a major MBR retrofit. SYVAB selected SUEZ’s LEAPmbr system, with ZeeWeed technology, which has earned a superior reputation in large industrial and municipal plants, for its compact design and high energy efficiency. Once commissioned, the plant will be able to treat a maximum flow rate of incoming wastewater of 240 MLD (63.4 MGD), with an option of supplementing to 312 MLD (82.4 MGD). It will also include more than 240 ZW500D LEAPmbr cassettes.

Based on region, the biological wastewater treatment market is segmented into Asia Pacific, the Middle East & Africa, North America, Europe, and South America. Among these, North America accounted for the largest share of the market in 2019. This large share can be attributed to the aging infrastructure, stringent regulations, economic development, and increasing consumption of water from industries. The presence of major biological wastewater treatment system manufacturers in North America such as Evoqua Water Technologies LLC (US), Aquatech International (US), and Xylem Inc. (US) gives a competitive edge to the region over others. The market in the Asia Pacific region is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Drivers for the growth of the biological wastewater treatment market include a rapidly increasing population, industrialization, and urbanization.
