Process Engineers on the Process Engineering team are key partners for our customers in the North American market. They are creative technical leaders responsible for supporting the successful sale, execution, commissioning, and operation of complete system solutions for our customers’ water treatment needs.  To win new opportunities, they apply deep technical knowledge of our solutions and technologies combined with an understanding of the customer’s process, the market, regulations, and our competitors to continually balance capital and operating costs, and technical risk with commercial viability. 


Microelectronics Ultrapure Water Process Engineers are responsible for the process design of UPW treatment solutions for customers in the microelectronics industry, including water characterization, defining the design basis, unit process selection and design, equipment sizing, and process guarantees.  They use a variety of treatment technologies, including solids separation, low- and high-pressure membrane treatment (ultrafiltration, nanofiltration, and reverse osmosis), ion exchange, UV treatment, and gas-transfer membrane processes to meet stringent effluent or reuse requirements specific to the microelectronics industry’s needs.  They evaluate system operation under both design and upset conditions, identify potential points of failure, and participate in detailed hazard reviews (HAZOPs).  Given the complex nature of the treatment flowsheets, the ability to act as system integrator and clearly identify the impacts that any given unit process will have on upstream/downstream unit processes is key. They also engage in piloting and treatability studies as part of design, commissioning, and troubleshooting.


Process Engineers build long term relationships with our customers and key experts in the industry and share technical expertise in industry forums to position SUEZ Water Technologies & Solutions (WTS) as experts within the market.  They serve as experts within the business, participating in innovation of solutions, technologies, and markets, and training and mentoring others in process design.
