Chemical – Pharmaceutical

In the chemical and pharmaceutical sector, water is the most used solvent, both as an ingredient in formulations and as a cleaning agent. It is estimated that chemical industries globally consume about 15% of freshwater resources.

More eco-efficient solutions are needed for the treatment of wastewater and the recovery of water itself.


The treatment of wastewater from production processes is a particularly critical step: the composition, the quantities produced, and the variability of flows make treatment operations even more elaborate.

The types of aqueous solutions that constitute waste can vary widely:

  • Wastewater from detergent production, mainly containing surfactants or from the production of personal care products, characterized by high concentrations of pollutants;
  • Washing waters from mixers and reactors in drug production, containing active ingredients;
  • Wastewater from the production of glues or adhesives, containing inks or silicone compounds or from the production of pesticides and fertilizers, containing sulfates, chlorides, nitrates, and ammonium salts among others;
  • Wastewater from the production of explosives, containing sulfates, chlorides, nitrates, and ammonium salts among others;
  • Water-glycol mixtures;

Most water treatment technologies would not be able to remove the various pollutants present.


Vacuum evaporation, in addition to having the highest separation efficiency, can effectively manage those compounds otherwise difficult to treat, recovering them.


→ Recovery of raw materials
→ Recovery of water reusable in the process
→ Reduction of disposal costs
