Effluent Treatment

Operation & Application: Industrial wastewater treatment covers the mechanisms and processes used to treat wastewater that is produced as a by-product of industrial or commercial activities. After treatment, the treated industrial wastewater (or effluent) may be reused or released to a sanitary sewer or to a surface water in the environment. Most industries produce some wastewater although recent trends in the developed world have been to minimize such production or recycle such wastewater within the production process. However, many industries remain dependent on processes that produce wastewater.
