Veolia’s Water Recovery Recognised by Award

11 November 2015

Kent & Canterbury Hospital Renal Unit saving significant mains water annually

Veolia Water Technologies has received a prestigious Building Better Healthcare Award. The 17th annual HPCi Media awards celebrate innovation, architecture, people, products and services that are helping to transform patient care in the UK. Veolia’s award in the Utilities and Services category recognises a project that has reduced water consumption at the Kent and Canterbury Hospital Renal Unit.

The East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust has a sustainable development management plan to reduce water consumption by 25% by 2020. To help meet this target, the 1,100 litres per hour of reject water from the Renal Unit’s reverse osmosis plant (RO) was being discharged to the Hospital’s grey water recovery system. The Renal Technicians felt that its quality was too good to simply pass to the grey water system. Working closely with the Renal Technicians at the Hospital, Veolia’s engineers designed a system based on a RecoBLUE Recovery RO which would recover this reject water. Kent & Canterbury Hospital Renal Technician, Fraser Campbell, said “This award recognizes Veolia’s innovation in renal water treatment, and we are pleased to have been part of it.”

The plant, which will give annual predicted savings of mains water of more than 3,200m3, equivalent to 1.5 tonnes CO2 per year, was commissioned in April 2014.

Accepting the award at The Brewery in central London on 4th November, Veolia’s Marketing Communications Manager, Sukhi Dhanhoa, said “Both Veolia and Kent & Canterbury are delighted to receive this award. The RecoBLUE solution has clearly demonstrated cost savings and sustainability in a healthcare application”
