Types of coagulants and flocculants
Veolia offers a comprehensive portfolio of coagulants and flocculants that aid in the clarification process. Whether you need coagulants or flocculants, liquid, emulsion or powders, cationic or anionic products, Veolia has a cost-effective solution for your raw water and wastewater. Our application expertise ranges from operational optimization to selecting and applying chemical treatment programs while providing your lowest total cost of operation for your solids separation and color removal needs.
KlarAid* coagulants – highly charged inorganic, organic and blended coagulants for clarification of industrial water and wastewater
KlarAid products are ready to use water-soluble coagulants, ranging from polymeric inorganic and organic coagulants to single container blends. They are designed to function in a variety of industrial water and wastewater treatment applications, including use as a primary coagulant for removal of colloidal turbidity and color for raw water clarification, as a demulsifier to facilitate liquid solids separation in dissolved gas flotation units for primary wastewater treatment, and settling and filter aids used separately or in conjunction with organic flocculants.
The KlarAid product line encompasses a comprehensive portfolio of chemistries ranging from classic inorganics to modified natural products, such as amphoteric tannins and starches, to modern synthetic organic chemistries. They encompass relatively low to high cationic charge densities.
One of the highest costs in many water and wastewater treatment plants is residuals (sludge) disposal. Veolia works with their customers to choose coagulants that can minimize sludge production, which is a high cost to the plant (i.e., we always work with customers to minimize their total cost of operation).

Novus* flocculants – high molecular weight polymers for use as clarification, flotation and dewatering aids
Novus products are cationic, high molecular weight water-soluble polymers provided as liquid emulsions, providing the right balance of ease of use and cost-effectiveness. They are designed to function in a variety of industrial water and wastewater treatment applications.
The Novus product line provides a comprehensive portfolio with a broad range of cationic charge and molecular structure, thereby allowing Veolia to produce products for both raw and wastewater clarification, flotation enhancement and sludge conditioning (for thickening and dewatering).

PolyFloc* flocculants – high molecular weight clarification, flotation and dewatering polymers
PolyFloc products are high molecular weight water-soluble polymers. They are designed to function in a variety of industrial water and wastewater treatment applications. Depending on customer preference, they are available in concentrated powder form, cost-effective emulsion liquids and convenient, easy-to-feed liquid solutions.
The PolyFloc product line encompasses a broad range of charge types, ranging from low to high anionic or cationic charge, thereby allowing Veolia to produce products for raw and wastewater clarification, flotation enhancement and sludge conditioning (for thickening and dewatering) on a wide variety of substrates.
