Paques helps companies and municipalities contribute to the major challenges of today: to reduce their water and carbon footprints and reclaim valuable resources. Paques does this by developing ingenious anaerobic water purification systems that produce energy from wastewater, whilst purifying the water and facilitating water reuse. The biogas produced in the purifying process is a source of green energy, a field of emerging interest worldwide.

About Us

Paques helps companies and municipalities contribute to the major challenges of today: to reduce their water and carbon footprints and reclaim valuable resources.

Paques does this by developing ingenious anaerobic water purification systems that produce energy from wastewater, whilst purifying the water and facilitating water reuse. The biogas produced in the purifying process is a source of green energy, a field of emerging interest worldwide.

Since the introduction of Paques’ first BIOPAQ reactor in 1982, close cooperation with its partners has resulted in an extensive portfolio for integrated water and gas treatment. All systems are designed and installed to fit the customer’s specific needs, either integrated with existing treatment systems or as stand-alone solutions.

Paques’ technologies have proven to be cost-effective and reliable solutions and this site contains many case references that establish that claim.

Vision & Mission

Paques biotechnology helps companies to reduce fresh water intake, decrease their carbon footprints and reclaim valuable resources from waste. Major global changes make integration of water purification, sustainable energy generation and reuse of resources of growing importance.

Water
Water scarcity is one of the most important challenges of today and for the future. Water is a bare necessity of life. It is essential in the production of food, goods and energy, for socio- economic development and for maintaining healthy ecosystems. Although 70% of the earth’s surface consists of water, only 1% is fresh water and available for human consumption. A growing world population, a changing climate and higher standards of living only intensify the pressure on already scarce resources.

Energy
Continuing global warming and depleting reserves of fossil fuels force us to explore alternative, sustainable energy sources. There is a close connection between energy and water, as one is needed to use the other.

Resources
The world’s natural resources are running low. Take phosphate, an essential element in the production of food. It is expected that half of the world’s current high-grade resources will be gone before the end of the century. Besides this, reserves of some base metals are expected to be depleted within two decades.

Mission

revitalizing resources
Paques' mission is to design biotechnological processes to purify water and gas streams in order to improve the sustainability of companies and contribute to the balanced improvement of People, Profit and Planet through revitalization of resources.

Facts & Awards

The environmental impact of Paques’ technologies
