Solutions for environmental, technical and financial sustainability

For more than eight decades, we have combined our expertise in efficient water and energy solutions to help our customers effectively use both, saving them money while improving the environment and reducing overall natural resource consumption. We optimize natural resources and drive prosperity through unrivaled engineered solutions, and are always committed to creating harmony between the environment and the economy. Our commitment to developing innovative solutions that are financially, technically and environmentally sustainable can be found in boiler and cooling systems, oil and gas production, pulp and papermaking, wastewater operations and almost any industrial plant or large building. With the formation of Nalco Mobotec, we are expanding our capabilities by delivering multi-pollutant control that maximizes the efficiency of current assets, offering practical strategies for effective control of nitrogen and sulfur oxides (NOx/SOx), greenhouse gases, particulates (PM) and mercury

Protecting the environment, and the health and safety of our employees, customers and communities are among our highest priorities. Nalco is also committed to Responsible Care®, a global, voluntary initiative by the chemical industry to improve our safety, health and environmental performance.

Providing our customers with solutions that are technically, economically and environmentally sustainable has always been part of what we deliver. Nalco's original boiler feedwater treatments in the 1920s were designed to allow boilers to operate safely and efficiently, and our latest programs and chemistries still do that today, allowing our customers to save water and energy and provide a safer working environment for their employees.

Our Customers Care

Growing customer interest in sustainable development is driven by both increased consumer demand for responsible business management and additional regulatory requirements. We are uniquely positioned to help customers improve their environmental performance, with nearly all of our offerings providing social benefits such as:

  • Cleaner water and air,
  • Improved freshwater availability driven by reduction, recycling and reuse of water in production and other processes,
  • Reductions in greenhouse gases resulting from energy efficiency improvements,
  • Reduced solid waste generation and hazardous materials exposure.

Our Programs Deliver Results

The Nalco Air Protection Technologies (APT) group provides comprehensive mercury emission control solutions for coal-fired power plants. The Nalco APT approach maximizes the utilization and return on investment of air quality control devices (ACQDs) that reduce pollutant emissions. Nalco mercury solutions require only minimal modification of existing equipment and can be implemented at a lower cost than competitive technology.

Nalco continuously looks for ways to extend its innovative solutions to more industries, geographies and systems. The ability of 3D TRASAR® technology to measure key system parameters, detect upsets and take appropriate action in cooling water systems last year saved an estimated 283 million cubic meters of water from more than 8,500 3D TRASAR installations worldwide. This real-time control capability has been extended to performance optimization in reverse osmosis (RO) systems in water pretreatment. 3D TRASAR technology for RO keeps membranes cleaner longer, extending membrane life and reducing energy needed to pass water through the membranes.
