Large quantities of high-quality water are required to manufacture the cells used in microelectronic and photovoltaic systems.
Veolia Water Technologies, as the world leader in water and wastewater treatment, is a partner of choice for these industries. From packaged plants to turnkey installations and long-term operating services, we offer cost-effective water treatment solutions for Greenfield sites, facility expansions and plant upgrades.
For example, Veolia has developed a compact and modular engineered system able to recover coolant used for ingot slicing with a Diamond Wire Saw system. Highly efficient, this chemical-free packaged solution created specifically for photovoltaic applications achieves a coolant recovery rate of 80%, which can rise to 90% when combined with membranes.
