Under the agreement, Veolia plans to expand its current production capacity in Wuxi and introduce new products to build energy-saving and environmentally friendly clean production lines. The company will transform its Wuxi site into a base of R&D and product assembly in China.

The expansion is part of Veolia’s newly launched GreenUp program aimed at accelerating the deployment of solutions that decarbonize, depollute, and regenerate resources. To achieve this new strategy program, Veolia is relying on a combination of its core businesses with growth boosters such as Water Technologies and new solutions to preserve water resources and treat new pollutants.

“China represents an important market for Veolia as we execute our GreenUp program to drive ecological transformation for partners and customers around the globe,” said Anne Le Guennec, senior executive VP, Veolia Water Technologies. “Our enhanced presence will allow us to be the catalyst for emissions reductions, water conservation, and pollution prevention in the region. Through this extended partnership and new innovation, our Wuxi expansion exemplifies our commitment to greening up and creating a more sustainable future.”

Veolia’s Wuxi facility is the largest production base of Veolia Group in Asia Pacific region, as well as the only site with a complete water treatment product production line, from chemical reagents to equipment.
