Waterleau mission statement

Potato Power: Turning potato processing waste and wastewater into new energy.

The organic pollution in plant wastewater and potato waste is a great source of energy.

Waterleau counts more than 500 references in biogas recovery from wastewater in the beverage, dairy, potato and sugar industry.

In the potato industry sustainable energy can not only be recovered from wastewater, but also from potato peels, rejected fries or other wasted potato products. In addition waste fats and oils are an important energy source.

Up to 60 % of the overall needed energy to process the plant can be recovered from its wastewater and potato waste.

Waterleau's BIOTIM UASB/UAC and WET AD anaerobic reactors have been implemented in more than 30 potato processing plants in Belgium, The Netherlands, France, Germany and China.

Our team of environmental specialists are eager to help you turning your potato processing plant into a water and energy recovery facility.
