Industrial Wastewater and the Importance of Chemical Pretreatment
Industrial wastewater (or trade waste) is generally described as an array of contaminants which will negatively impact the environment if released incorrectly; with the result impacting the integrity of surface water, groundwater and the land.
- Industrial processes create different kinds of impurities such as: fats from food processing, colourings, acids, oils and organic chemicals including paints, dyes, detergents or pesticides.
- In order to mitigate environmental risks, Industrial Wastewater Pretreatment methods are utilised to remove pollutants prior to discharging or reusing the water.
- Industrial Wastewater Pretreatment is important because sewage collection systems and water treatment plants can experience corroded pipes and equipment; if the toxic impurities from industrial & commercial wastewater are not properly discharged.
Industrial Wastewater Pretreatment Methods
An Industrial Wastewater (or trade waste) Management Program incorporates the legal, technical and administrative items required for safely controlling industrial wastewater discharge.
- Chemical Pretreatment is as simple as adding chemicals prior to discharge or integrating equipment into the process. The best solution is the one that offers the most effective capital and operating costs.
Benefits for your business or project
Typically, the program is designed to be proactive versus reactive and by implementing an Industrial Wastewater Management Program, you:
- Decrease any possibilities to affect the operation of local sewage and water treatment plants,
- Increase opportunities for wastewater and sewage sludge to be reused or recycled,
- Stop untreated polluted water from passing through water treatment plants and into the receiving body of water that may result in devastating health or safety problems for the public or environment.
