Putting People and Our Planet First

Sustainability is built into our circular services. By recycling our activated carbon, we reduce the CO2 footprint of our purification solutions. Our ISO 14001 certification further confirms that our business practices are kind to the environment. Along with caring about the planet, we also value our workforce and respect our local community. Finally, as demonstrated by our ISO 9001 certification, DESOTEC ensures high-quality services and products for its customers while continuously improving our organization and working environment.

Purification Made Simple

Our water/air filtration-as-a-service business model also includes waste management, thus providing our customers with a hassle-free, all-in-one purification solution. Leveraging our expertise, we engage with our customers to fully understand and satisfy their needs. By establishing a close collaboration, we help them run a business that respects the environment and their local community. Together, we make a positive impact on our planet.

Closed Loop

Conserving our planet’s precious natural resources is key to a greener future. Reactivating saturated carbon reduces the amount of virgin raw materials needed for filtration, closing the loop and improving sustainability. We also neutralize the adsorbed components and recover them where possible. DESOTEC already reactivates most spent carbon, and we are developing technology to move towards 100% circularity.

Sustainable Development Goals

Our Compass

We adopted five UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as our guiding principles. By focusing on these objectives, we can effectively drive positive change within our company while also supporting our customers’ sustainability targets.

  • Water filtration is one of our key services. This implies safer drinking water for more people and the reuse of purified industrial wastewater to counter water scarcity.

  • We help purify biogas and biomethane to generate green energy. In Roeselare, Belgium, we have solar panels and use the steam recovered from our reactivation processes to heat some buildings. In Parker, Arizona, USA, we tap into hydropower to run our plant and processes.

  • Continuous monitoring of our reactivation furnaces ensures no pollutants enter the environment. We have developed renewable activated carbon to reduce their climate impact. DESOTEC already reactivates most spent carbon, and we are developing technology to move towards 100% circularity.

  • Along with our circular business model, our digital mindset helps us minimize our carbon footprint. We have also replaced employees’ disposable water bottles with personalized reusable ones.

  • Reactivating carbon is more climate-friendly than using new carbon. We also deliver and take back filters in one trip, thus minimizing our transport-related GHG emissions. We have introduced company bikes, offer bike lease to our employees, and are transitioning our vehicle fleet to zero-emission vehicles.
