Danone Nutricia Research

By bringing together employees from different backgrounds, with complementary scientific and technological expertise, Danone Nutricia has been able to build a creative powerhouse to drive our innovation. With over 600 employees, the Utrecht R&I centre provides evidence-based specialised nutrition to infants, pregnant women, patients and the elderly.


The centre is part of a growing life sciences community on the Utrecht Science Park that includes hospitals, a university, a HBO and companies. 

It offers state-of-the-art facilities, such as science and technology laboratories, a pilot plant for small-scale production and a sensory and behavioural science laboratory for consumer testing.

Scope of the project

The new installation for the production of ultra pure water has replaced two Millipore installations. The installation, consisting of a reverse osmosis unit with an EDI unit behind it, delivers the desired flow and value that Danone was looking for. By using a UV installation with a 0.2 mu absolute filter connected to it, the TOC and bacteria values are also guaranteed. Grünbeck realized this installation by order of BAM.

Scope of delivery

  • 1x GENO-OSMO-X 800 reverse osmosis, 800 liter/h;
  • 1x GENO-EDI-X 720 EDI unit, 720 l/h
  • 1x GENO-UV 60L UV system;
  • 3x GENO-FU-XNE2/40-1N booster stations, each 1-4.2m3/h;
  • 1x GENO-FU-X 4/40-1N booster unit, 2.4-7.2 m3/h.
