industrial water

Rütgers’s expansion, demands more industrial water


The tar processing company Rütgers in Zelzate (Belgium) is going to increase its production of phthalic anhydride by fifty percent in 2014.

This means 14,000 tons per year extra phthalic anhydride. Phthalic anhydride is used in the preparation of plastics, fiberglass and automotive paints. It is extracted from naphthalene which in turn comes from coal tar.

Because of the rapid expansion Rütgers needed to upgrade their existing demi water installation to handle higher production needs.

Induss, a new company within the umbrella organisation (itself a collaboration between AWW and TMVW), today presented itself and its plans for the future. Induss supplies water to companies for industrial applications: cooling water, demineralised (DI) water, feed water for tanks, ultra-filtrated water etc. Induss is not a water supplier as such, but approaches the market as a full service company for industrial water.

The collaboration with Induss enables us to reduce our carbon footprint. Transparency in our partnership is also the key for better cost control of water and steam.
