The Ultimate Guide to Industrial Wastewater Treatment

Posted by Dora Ip on May 10, 2016 2:48:33 PM

Clean, fresh water is a luxury in many countries and is increasingly becoming a valuable commodity.  Our society today is faced with the challenge of harnessing the power of advanced wastewater treatment technologies to preserve our precious water resources.  Not only does this apply to municipal water treatment plants that work around the clock to make sure communities all over the world have access to clean, fresh water, but also in industrial processes to minimize usage and waste.


Many industrial processes in the automotive, textile, manufacturing, mining, oil & gas, and jewelry sectors are designed to reuse process water as much as possible.  Even the most cleverly designed processes however require a 'bleed' or outlet to prevent the build up of impurities that can affect the quality of the finished product if not properly dealt with.  


Presently only 20% of globally produced wastewater receives proper treatment.
