Automotive Wastewater Treatment

The automotive industry uses a significant amount of water in daily operations, including surface treatment, coating, washing, rinsing, cooling air-conditioning systems and boilers. In combination with the large number of oil-based products used, such as paints and synthetic fluids, the automotive industry produces a lot of wastewater for treatment.

Pretreatment is required to ensure compliance with the stringent trade waste and environmental regulations to avoid the release of toxic chemicals into the environment. Such toxins produced by the automotive industry include:

  • Fats, Oil, Grease (FOG) and Hydrocarbons
  • Suspended Solids
  • Flammable Liquids
  • Coolant and Radiator Fluids
  • Car or equipment wash water

In addition to eliminating harmful chemicals, wastewater treatment minimizes corrosion and equipment blockages and decreases chemical costs. Treatment of wastewater also protects against biofuels which significantly prolongs equipment life.

Operators Unlimited offers a variety of services to help with all of your wastewater or facility needs. Our team of experienced, trained professionals has decades of experience to assess and treat any issue you or your facility may face.
