ROCHEM’s philosophy for developing new products

By Hanno Kröger

ROCHEM translate the principle of sustainable economic management into practice: the company’s long-term planning principle ensures sustainability through addressing the topics of the future and aiming at developing solutions that eliminate the root cause of a problem. ROCHEM’s Water Treatment solutions meet customers’ needs for energy-efficient environmentally friendly water treatment systems.

The market for industrial water treatment systems for both naval and leachate applications will, in all likelihood, continue to grow in 2018 with ROCHEM profiting from the many innovative solutions the company has developed over the past years.

Over the past two years, for example, ROCHEM have further optimised some of their products. In a first step, they equipped existing reverse osmosis systems with more energy efficient pumps and improved the membrane elements of the modules. This sustainable progress has helped to make good products even better. Secondly, they have developed extremely efficient innovative systems providing higher performance at lower cost. When developing new systems, ROCHEM’s engineers focus on finding solutions for specific customer problems. They are convinced that the crucial step in the process of developing both innovative and sustainable water treatment systems is to take the customer’s initial problem into account right from the start. Following this philosophy, ROCHEM’s engineers keep working on developing compact and even more efficient systems without chemical pre-filtration.

Carrying on in this vein, March 2018 will see the start of the test run for the company’s latest development in the field of marine applications. The new product will be launched onto the market this year. Between 2018 and 2020, ROCHEM will renew around half of the products in their portfolio to build particularly energy-efficient systems.

Quality management, environmental protection, energy efficiency, occupational safety and information security policy are integral parts of ROCHEM’s philosophy, which aims at achieving sustainability through developing innovative products.
