About the entity

Alfa Laval
Alfa Laval is today a world leader within the key technology areas of heat transfer, separation and fluid handling. Our company was founded on a single brilliant invention and innovation remains at the heart of everything we do.

Alfa Laval – a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling – has signed a global commercial agreement with Orège, a French global cleantech company supplying innovative patented techniques for wastewater treatment. The partnership will enable a strong combined product offering and expanded market presence for both companies.

Alfa Laval has a wide range of products and solutions for the wastewater treatment industry. One of the technologies is the Alfa Laval Ashbrook Simon-Hartley line of belt filter presses used to dewater municipal and industrial sludges, as part of the overall wastewater treatment process. With the commercial agreement and partnership with Orège, Alfa Laval will be able to offer an innovative sludge conditioning technology, adding efficiency and reducing overall costs of the customers’ processes.

“I am very pleased to announce the partnership with Orège. We will now be able to further improve our customers’ processes, which will have an impact both on their bottom line and the environment as it will support our customers in reaching their own sustainability targets,” says Nish Patel, President of the Food & Water Division.

The partnership will expand Alfa Laval’s and Orège’s presence on the sludge dewatering market where the jointly offered solution is suitable for both new installations and retrofit.

Did you know that... by adding Orège’s SLG (Solids, Liquid, Gas) technology to Alfa Laval´s process solutions, a wastewater treatment plant will reduce both sludge volumes and polymer consumption – and also increase capacity, which will significantly lower the plant’s operating costs?
