Quite simply, industrial wastewater is a by-product from the manufacturing of commercial products. Whether it is from the food we eat, the beverages we drink, the clothes we wear, or the paper and chemical products we use, water is required for nearly every step of production across a multitude of different industries.
As water is used in the production process, it can pick up a variety of contaminants which require removal to acceptable levels before discharge from an industrial manufacturing facility. Typical constituents requiring treatment may include suspended solids (TSS), fats-oils-grease (FOG), pH, bacteria, selenium, heavy metals, and other regulated chemicals and substances.
Evoqua provides a complete range of solutions and services for treating industrial wastewater to:
- Comply with regulatory requirements - we can help your facility meet strict pretreatment or direct discharge treatment goals.
- Reduce or eliminate wastewater surcharges - on-site treatment can lower (or even eliminate) surcharges associated with discharging untreated wastewater to a local municipal treatment plant.
- Reuse water - high-quality effluent can be reclaimed, reducing plant operating costs.
- Become an environmental steward - minimize your environmental footprint.
Our products include filtration, clarification systems, biological treatment (anaerobic and aerobic), disinfection, ion exchange, water reuse, and other technologies for removing impurities from water. We also provide customers engineering and technical process expertise to help consulting engineers and industries respond to market needs and evolving wastewater treatment standards.
