MEXICO CITY, MEXICO, March 22, 2014 -- A new partnership plans to be negotiated between Desalitech, a provider of high-efficiency water production and wastewater treatment solutions, and Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies, a provider of industrial and municipal water treatment technologies, to bring advanced, cost-effective, high-recovery water solutions to Mexico and additional countries worldwide.
