EnviroChemie strengthens presence in India with Bergen partnership
Press Release | EnviroChemie GmbH
SEPTEMBER 12, 2016
The agreement was initially discussed during the Intersolar Trade Fair in Munich in June and finalized in August, EnviroChemie said.
Bergen Group has been operating in India since 1983. One of its main areas of focus has been the solar industry where it has already successfully executed projects in partnership with EnviroChemie.
Wastewater modernization needed
Bergen is also a leading player in the pharmaceuticals sector. It wants to optimize its water management, regarding sustainable water usage as particularly important, due to chronic water shortages within host communities.
India’s industrial infrastructure urgently needs to modernize when it comes to wastewater technology, according to Elmar Billenkamp, EnviroChemie specialist for South Asia.
“This is especially true with regard to recycling treated wastewater right up to zero liquid discharge (free of any liquid waste) concepts, given the frequent absence of connections to a sewage system. EnviroChemie can supply customized solutions to these challenges,” Billenkamp explained.
“Cooperating with Bergen Group is ideal for strengthening our sales activities in India. Bergen Group operates seven offices in India and can therefore help us with local support,” Billenkamp added.
Zero liquid discharge
EnviroChemie has recently conducted studies to examine the best approach to treating production-related pharmaceutical wastewater in India. . The study has encompassed procedures for recycling treated wastewater for several Bergen Group sites in India, including examination of a zero liquid discharge concept.
The study has been supported by laboratory tests and pilot trials at EnviroChemie’s research center in Rossdorf, using samples of the actual wastewater produced in India.
The concept design is being based on the examination of all the water streams involved in the entire production process, not just wastewater flows. The EnviroChemie concept will spotlight options for recycling water and efficiently treating wastewater, right up to zero liquid discharge production that creates no wastewater at all.
“Zero liquid discharge is increasingly becoming an important issue for companies in many regions: to maximize resources, minimize wastage or because there is an active water shortage around production sites,” commented Elmar Billenkamp.
EnviroChemie GmbH has established a reputation over four decades for reliable and innovative technology for water and wastewater treatment, specializing in developing and implementing customized solutions for customers in the pharmaceutical industry and life sciences.
This ISO-9001 certified engineering company was founded in 1976 and offers a holistic range of “Made in Germany” branded products and services based on chemico-physical, biological and membrane filtration processes, whose pedigree relies on its long list of research achievements and patents.

With more than 300 plants per year sold worldwide, EnviroChemie can apply unrivalled experience to continuous development of innovative and reliable industrial water and wastewater technologies.
EnviroChemie specializes in supporting customers in projects, where effluents must be specifically treated to:
- Abate trace elements by concentrating them (e.g. reverse osmosis and vacuum distillation)
- Inactivate streams containing biologically active ingredients (e.g. vaccines, antigens, etc.) by means of thermal sterilisation technology
- Eliminate pharmaceuticals implementing advanced oxidation processes (e.g. ozonation)
- Generate green energy (biogas) from digested organic matter (COD) implementing anaerobic treatment technology (e.g. at insulin production facilities)
EnviroChemie products are developed and supplied from three sites in Germany and Switzerland and the company operates seven sales and service offices, including subsidiaries in Brazil and Russia.
