ABOUT AQUASSAY

Aquassay is born from the encounter of two experts and their shared acknowledgment, simple but whose consequences are still not perceived enough :

Water is exhaustible, alterable and expensive.

AQUASSAY, FIRST SERVICE COMPANY PROPOSING AN OFFER DEDICATED TO WATER EFFICIENCY IN INDUSTRY.

Stéphane Gilbert is expert in industrial water treatments and usages while Jean-Emmanuel Gilbert is doctor in chemistry with a major in environment.

Simple homonyms and yet agreeing at 100% on the core values of their jobs and which solutions to bring to industrials, they co-found Aquassay in 2015.

First Bureau of Studies serving industrial sites, Aquassay realizes complete cartographies of water flows and usages and brings improvement recommendations with only philosophy the treatment of problems at their source.

The aim: act firstly on root causes to reduce consumptions, improve water usages productivity and reduce both produced and rejected pollutions.

To realize increasingly elaborated cartographies, we have innovated and developed a SaaS solution (100% cloud and 100% web) complete of real-time acquisition, transmission, management and exploitation of bulk data.

From 2016 onwards, we directly connected industrial installations (CAT, boilers, osmosis units, CIP…) and developed new business applications coming from process engineering. Our SaaS solution has thus been marketed through white marking since then.

Aquassay now is a reference in solutions of bulk data flows analysis in real-time, for water uses and treatments.

The high adaptability of our solution allows us to bring our customers tailored applications key-in-hand. The global deployment of our solution began, and we keep on developing new features for the factory of the future and a sustainable city.

Water efficiency

The global concept underlying Aquassay’s action is water efficiency.

In a context where our relationship to water is going to evolve under environmental, reglementary and economic constraints, the water efficiency strategy aims to consume better, produce better and reject less, acting primarily on the performance usages and treatments.

Pioneer of this strategy, Aquassay applies those precepts to its clients by examining all water usages of a site and recommending improvements, often cost-effective in the short-term.

The results of this approach are concrete :

  • Cost reduction (direct and indirect)
  • Environmental footprint reduction (consumption and effluents impact)
  • Compliance to imposed rules (authorizations and release agreements, RDSW, ……., intern standards…)

Overall water cost

Today, water is mistakenly considered as inexpensive, because it is generally perceived through its direct « visible » costs, meaning its costs as material (ex.: $/ consumed m3; taxes and royalties associated to effluents volumes and quality)

Yet, this vision is very partial.

As a thermal and utility fluid (transporting, washing, rinsing, dissolving, etc.) , as a solvent and ingredient, water actually irrigates almost all human activities and its global cost calculation must include investments (installations, networks, sensors, pumps, etc.) and operating costs (energy, reagents, maintenance, analyses, wage bill,…) relevant to water usages.

To these direct costs must be added indirect costs, no longer meaning the costs of water but the costs induced by water. It can be, for example, productivity losses (ex. : production reduction or stoppage induced by water), non-quality costs (ex. : noncompliance of finished products induced by a bad control of ingredient waters or cleaning waters quality), performance drops (ex. : 1 mm tartar can induce an 82% reduction of the heat transmission efficiency) or also the reduction of your installations durability (ex. : a new process induces more acid effluents, which will consume networks not initially designed for this purpose).

Improving the performance of both your water usages and treatments is improving the one of your activity.

The team

We are passionate experts, driven by our business utility, by the new fields opened by water efficiency, by smart data use and by industrial and environmental performance.

Our team is multidisciplinary: water treatment process engineering, electronics and communication, computer science, metrology, chemistry, toxicology.
