Australia is the world’s driest inhabited continent, with one of the developed world’s fastest growing urban populations. At SUEZ, we partner with our municipal customers to secure clean, reliable drinking water supplies for our cities and regions.
Resource scarcity and population growth are placing increasing pressure on local authorities to provide reliable access to safe drinking water. Customers also demand higher quality, better tasting water. Our municipal customers seek to optimise the efficiency and performance of their assets, improve or expand ageing infrastructure and gain greater value from their investment.

Driving greater efficiency and water quality
Our technologies and solutions are increasingly compact, automated and cost-efficient, enabling service improvement and greater efficiency in new and existing drinking water facilities. Our traditional and advanced treatment processes range from clarification and filtration to specific treatments to remove iron, manganese, arsenic, dissolved organic matters, and micro-pollutants.
SUEZ offers a range of solutions to remove micropollutants from the aquatic environment, mitigating their potentially chronic effects on ecosystems.
Micropollutants are organic or mineral substances with a potentially negative effect on the natural environment and organisms. They pose a growing threat to the marine ecosystem, even at very low concentrations. We employ a range of innovative micropollutant treatment technologies including biological degradation, absorption, oxidisation via physical-chemical techniques and membrane separation.
