Industrial Effluents

Protection of the environment and industrial imperatives require the implementation of reliable and secure storage solutions. In this regard, Labaronne-Citaf has been working for more than 40 years in the industrial field to meet this need.

To support you in the development of your activity, Labaronne-Citaf has developed a complete range of high-quality flexible storage solutions for the storage of industrial effluents. With a capacity ranging from 1 m3 to 2000 m3, our flexible self-supporting tanks can be used for temporary or longer-term storage.

A storage solution adapted to industrial effluents

The storage of industrial effluents in flexible containers is relevant for many reasons. Flexible storage is particularly advantageous because it makes it possible to store temporarily or permanently. In addition, you can arrange your installation optimally, in order to adapt to the different constraints of your site or the liquid to be kept.

It can be used for the storage of multiple industrial liquids: wastewater, sewage, industrial effluents, chemicals (basic or acid solutions), leachate, brine; and also materials that can be altered by air (latex, glue, paint, etc.)

In the context of the storage of industrial sludge (such as liquid sludge from wastewater treatment plants), the flexible tanks that we offer are regularly used as final storage, before a dewatering, treatment or spreading process.

Our flexible tanks, recognized by manufacturers

Our Technical Department works alongside our customers to develop solutions adapted to industrial requirements. Proven for years, they guarantee the protection of resources, people and the environment. The performance of the Labaronne-Citaf industrial effluent tank is well established. Quickly operational (in just a few hours), adaptable and tailor-made, flexible cisterns that we manufacture are renowned for their unfailing robustness, thanks to our dedicated technical fabric, ultra-resistant to fermentable and aggressive liquids.

Our quality requirements allow us to be referenced and recognized by professionals in the sector, such as Bouygues, Colas, Suez, Véolia


Good to know: Do you want to benefit from a flexible solution with a larger volume? In this case, it is quite possible to direct you to a semi-underground cistern, which has a storage volume of up to 17,000 m3. Please contact us to find out our distribution area for this product.

Labaronne-Citaf provides you with products that meet your needs and have been proven for many years. Aware of the costs of effluent treatment and the challenges they pose for production processes, our flexible bladders for industrial effluents are designed in a technical fabric that is coated, then lacquered.

This reinforced fabric has been rigorously selected for its exceptional chemical stability and its high-end properties:

  • Antifungal treatment: to prevent the proliferation of fungi and ensure the longevity of the tank.
  • Anti-UV treatment: protects against the aggression of UV radiation, altering the resistance of the technical fabric.
  • Lacquering: additional treatment protecting against all contact and exposure aggressions between the coating and the stored liquid.
  • Perfect sealing: waterproof, unpleasant odours are reduced and our devices meet legal environmental protection requirements.
  • Resistance to mechanical abrasion: Labaronne-Citaf tanks thus have an unequalled lifespan.

High Labaronne-Citaf quality: as proof of our commitment, our fabric has been inspected and approved by the Kiwa organization* for over 25 years.
*Kiwa is one of the world’s 20 major players in the Testing, Control and Certification (TCC) sector. This global and independent body monitors the quality, safety and durability of products.

Did you know?


On an international scale, the trend towards recycling is gaining water.

Known as REUSE (from the expression “Wastewater Reuse”), the reuse of wastewater thus appears to be a way forward and several governments have already taken regulatory measures to encourage the practice.

In Europe, for example, farmers and industrialists will have up to 2023 years to adapt their structures.

Finally, to complete our services and ensure your absolute peace of mind, you should know that all our products are certified and guaranteed.

A field solution for the storage and treatment of your waste

More secure and advantageous than an open pit (lagoon type), the flexible closed storage avoids the risk of falls and drowning. It also limits spreading costs by preventing the dissolution of the stored product by rainwater. Finally, it adapts to the filling capacity, with constant useful storage volume.

Different possible uses

  • Industrial and agri-food effluents
  • Bringing urban and collective wastewater treatment plants up to standard
  • WWTP sludge (liquid sludge from treatment plants) before spreading or dewatering
  • Sludge dewatering filters
  • Landfill leachate
  • Digestate
  • Water for firefighting
  • Liquid Process
  • Chemicals (acidic or basic solutions)
  • Domestic wastewater
  • Brine
  • Materials that can be altered by air (latex, glue, paint, etc.)

Good to know: Labaronne-Citaf flexible tanks for residual sludge are specially sized to evacuate the gases generated by digestions in an anaerobic environment.


Depending on your use – but also on the dryness of your liquid waste – equipment can be added or modified. This allows us to equip your industrial effluents tank with a mixing system. Contact us to find out about our solutions for industries.

Installation and maintenance

Labaronne-Citaf self-supporting flexible bladders are extremely easy to install (just a few hours), to move and to transport. This is one of the advantages of flexible storage. You can easily drain, clean and store them for later use.
