Veolia makes constant efforts to improve its performance to reduce the impact of water discharges from its activities.
To ensure the efficient management of wastewater collection and treatment services, Veolia has developed a comprehensive approach to help municipalities, whatever their size and the technical issues and regulations involved. The guaranteed success of a wastewater project involves several clearly identified steps: assess needs, define a local strategy, guarantee quality, measure service performance and, lastly, inform the local community about the impact of the service.
A state-of-the-art wastewater treatment plant in Delhi
In 2012, Delhi Jal Board chose Veolia to build the city’s first sustainable sewage treatment in the north western part of Delhi, Nilothi, through a design, build and operate contract. The plant of 91 MLD capacity functions with green processes that include the production of biogas and compost. Around 50% of the electricity requirement of the plant is served by the in-house generated bio-gas.
The sludge treatment system of Nilothi removes effluents like nitrogen and phosphorus from the treated wastewater to minimize the impact on the environment before it is discharged into the Yamuna River. Further the compost generated from the sludge composting process can be used as fertilizers and is distributed to the local farmers
The main objective of this treatment plant is to set a standard on the comprehensive and sustainable solutions for sewerage treatment plant.
