Paques’ technologies have proven to be cost-effective and reliable solutions.

 Paques offers a broad range of services, ranging from feasibility studies, consultancy and engineering to mechanical and electrical contracting. The portfolio for water treatment is wide and includes flexible anaerobic treatment, aerobic treatment, (biological) sand filtration, nitrogen removal, sulphate removal, phosphate recovery and removal and metal removal. For (bio)gas treatment, Paques offers a very efficient desulphurisation technology.
