SUEZ Compact Units - Highly adaptable, prefabricated and self-sufficient drinking water treatment

Today, 2.1 billion people still do not have access to safe drinking water. The situation will worsen by 2030 with more than 8.5 billion people on earth. The consequences of global warming will multiply and lead to water stress, water shortages and extreme natural events. Therefore, water is essential for sustainable and economic development. Without water and sanitation, people face nutrition, hygiene and health issues. SUEZ compact unit offers compact drinking water production plants, prefabricated in metal containers and equipped with the same technologies as a traditional plant made of concrete. The assembly of those compact plants is faster than for a concrete plant. Indeed, it only takes from a few days, or a few weeks for large.
