Chemical plant wastewater, a by-product as a result of use in refineries, can include conventional pollutants (oil and grease, suspended solids) as well as ammonia, chromium, phenols and sulfides.
Effective industrial wastewater treatment systems is critical in ensuring that discharged waters do not adversely affect local environments as they are released into sewers, lakes, rivers and oceans.
In recent years, industrial operators have been subjected to increased rigor around the management of process water in chemical plants, with requirements and regulations becoming more stringent.
To minimise the potential regulatory and consequential environmental risks, the industry has moved towards a more comprehensive focus on proper water disposal and recycling process water back into other plant processes, but the ultimate aim must be to treat affected water.
MINETEK's mechanical evaporation project technology offers operators the ability to remove pollutants through wastewater evaporation systems reducing risk and helping sites achieve water quality compliance.
