The Veolia Environment Moisture Measurement Challenge

In many Veolia Environnement activities, matrices’ humidity is a key parameter for the management of operations. The quality of measurement (speed and accuracy) represents a challenge in the management and optimization of our business operation processes.

For example, in the energy sector, the water content of the fuel is a parameter used in the regulations of some manufacturers to manage the settings of a biomass boiler. But it is also essential for verifying if the measured LCV (Lower Calorific Value) of the fuel delivered is compliant with that ordered.

For biological treatment of waste, moisture determines the proper operation of equipment such as screens or presses and especially the smooth operation process of organic matter degradation (compost) .

We are looking for innovative solutions able of measuring intrinsic moisture either online or on a flow of matrices with high organic content ( biofuels, household waste, biogas digestate … )
