What is Industrial Wastewater?

The process of taking an industrial facilities’ wastewater and making it clean enough to discharge to a local waterway or sewer authority. During the wastewater treatment process, contaminants are removed from the waste stream using a variety of system processes. The process chosen is based on the types of identified contaminants and budget of the facility. Each industrial facility is issued a permit that guides the cleanliness of the effluent water including what contaminants you take out and to what levels.

Physical/Chemical Treatment

Involves one or many different unit operations in combination. Including primary treatments such as screening and grit removal, settling, flotation, pH neutralization, coagulation and flocculation and tertiary processes such as media filtration and ion exchange.

Biological Treatment

Biological wastewater treatment is a process that degrades contaminants dissolved in effluents by the action of microorganisms.

Combination Treatment

When an industrial facility uses a combination of physical, chemical and biological techniques to remove any remaining solids and contaminants from the industrial effluent.
