“Let’s embrace the challenges for a better future”
– Founder Jos H. J. Pâques –
In a fast changing world, humanity is confronted with challenges like global warming, depletion of valuable resources and, most threatening, water scarcity. Water is a bare necessity of life and essential in the production of food, goods and energy for social-economic development and for maintaining healthy ecosystems.
Even though 70% of the earth’s surface consists of water, only 1% of this immense quantity is fresh water and available for human consumption and use. A growing world population, the changing climate and the demands for a higher standards of living only intensify the pressure on already scarce resources. Therefore, integration of water purification, sustainable energy generation and reuse of resources is becoming more and more essential in production processes.
Ideas and Solutions
Since over 30 years, Paques helps industries to reduce water and carbon footprints and reclaim valuable resources. Paques’ anaerobic water purification systems produce energy (biogas) from wastewater, whilst purifying the water and facilitating water reuse.
After the introduction of the first BIOPAQ® reactor in 1981 Paques developed a broad portfolio for integrated water and gas treatment in close cooperation with partners. All the solutions proved to be cost-effective and highly reliable.
Leading companies from a variety of industries worldwide selected Paques as their partner for meeting their purification and sustainability obligations. Paques accomplished long-term relationships with customers by working together in the development of solutions and delivery of high-quality installations.
In more than three decades, Dutch second-generation family owned business Paques became one of the leading players in water and gas treatment and currently Paques has offices and/or production facilities in the Netherlands, China, Brazil, United States of America and India and a network of professional partners worldwide.
