Veolia Water, via its subsidiary Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies, has been awarded a contract for €130 million to build three units for the treatment of raw water and wastewater for the Chilean CMPC Group, a world leader in pulp and paper production.
Celulose Riograndense, a member of the CMPC Group, has adopted the unique solutions offered by Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies for the treatment of its raw water and wastewater to comply with the very strict environmental regulations of the State of Rio Grande do Sul, where its pulp plant is located.
