Enhancing Society Together
April 2018

"Enhancing Society Together", our story in one short sentence. We see it every day under the Royal HaskoningDHV logo, on presentations and reports. We are enhancing society together. By working in partnership with our clients and other stakeholders, we are committed to make an impactful contribution to society through our projects. It is always there as a motivation for our people to determine the real problems and find the best solutions.

In this newsletter we have some nice examples that show how we do that and what we can achieve. Crystalactor® based resource recovery in Indonesia, a project driven by compliance, but paid for by the value of the recovered raw materials. Nereda® granular aerobic sludge technology for the paper industry, providing both an energy efficient and footprint efficient solution. WaterScan™ studies in South Africa and the Middle East, both water-scarce areas, where we take a bird’s eye perspective and find opportunities to drastically reduce water consumption. And finally Omrin The Netherlands, where we have upgraded the existing MBR plant resulting in an increased hydraulic capacity while at the same time reducing the required footprint and energy consumption. All wonderful examples of projects where we are enhancing society together with our clients.

Crystalactor® based resource recovery
J. Sinarko Wibowo a.k.a. Bob Sinarko (Business Development – Wastewater, PT Haskoning Indonesia): “Our client is one of the bigger fertilizer production companies in Indonesia. We have been engaging with them for quite some time and they had two important objectives related to their wastewater treatment; to comply with the applicable wastewater discharge standards and to recover as much valuable raw materials as possible from these wastewater streams.”

WaterScan™ at Lacsa (Pty) Ltd; effluent management and resource recovery

In 2016, Lacsa (Pty) Ltd, a company manufacturing lactulose as a bulk active pharmaceutical ingredient, appointed Royal HaskoningDHV to undertake a WaterScan™ at their factory located in Durban, South Africa. The WaterScan™ is a methodology developed by Royal HaskoningDHV to identify the potential for water saving and product recovery opportunities (in the case of Lacsa: caustic, acid and other valuable components).

Water conservation and reuse in The Middle East

Royal HaskoningDHV recently completed a WaterScan™ study
for a large Oil & Gas company in the Middle East. Their main objectives were to get a better view on water consumption at
three of their production plants and to identify opportunities for reduction of water consumption, for improvement of water efficiency and for water reuse. Ultimately the company wanted
to decrease their reliance on ground water.
