Waste Water Treatment Plant – Choosing The Best Solution

Waste water treatment plant solutions are a must. If you run an industrial business and you produce waste water as a by-product of your processes, you will need to implement a waste water treatment system. Failure to do this could cause damage to human health and the environment, leading to possible legal action and hefty fines.

There are a number of key factors that need to be considered when choosing a waste water treatment system for your plant. These include the waste water characterisations of your production facility, the regulatory requirements for discharge from the plant, and the outcomes you have produced from a complete waste water treatability study and pilot test. When it comes to the characterisations of your facility there are some important questions you need to address. Is there the need to remove COD or BOD? Are there high levels of inorganic contaminants? Is the facility involved in metal manufacturing that will contaminate the wastewater with metals such as nickel, lead, iron and zinc? Does your plant process food that will leave you with waste water that is heavy in oil and grease? By asking yourself these questions, you will be able to decipher what kind of drainage solutions are needed. For example, metals removal and pH stabilisation will need to be addressed if your plant runs a plating operation. Aside from this, you need to be aware of any regulations you need to adhere to, and you should carry out a test or study to determine if the waste water can be treated and how it needs to be treated.
