Understanding your needs

As your partner in water reuse, recycle and recover, our first priority is to understand your needs. Nalco does not treat problems in isolation. We take a broad view of your plant and operational challenges, in order to develop practical and well-engineered solutions that work in tandem with your existing operations. We start with a customized IWM audit by a team of Nalco industry experts:

  • Site Audit
  • Plant resources modeling for water discharge options 
  • Feasibility study
  • Pilot scale evaluation
  • Design, budget and construct
  • Build and commission
  • Own, operate and manage

The audit enables the IWM team to understand the parameters of your operations, including your energy and water needs, to determine the best improvement options. The result enables you to optimize total cost of operation with financing options.
