Glass industry

The glass industry consumes water as part of various processes and particularly for cooling. It also generates specific effluents during the shaping and transforming phases: flat glass, hollow glass, fibres, and other items.

Faced with ever-greater economic and environmental constraints, the sector’s industrial operators are constantly seeking new avenues of progress in terms of water management.

Through AQUAPROX I-TECH, AQUAPROX intervenes at several levels:
