Population growth across the world leads to industrial development across all sectors in order to satisfy increasing product demand. The food and drink sector, in particular, is growing rapidly. Effluents are an unavoidable output of food and beverage manufacturing and are under strict regulations and monitoring when it comes to disposal. Factories often require additional wastewater treatment in order to dispose of it.
Wastewater Treatment Regulated Parameters
Water authorities strictly monitor and regulate industrial effluent disposal. The levels of a number of water quality and other parameters must be within acceptable (or consented) levels. These include Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD), Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD), Total Suspended Solids (TSS), Fats, Oils and Greases (FOG) and Ammonia.
Accordingly, industrial organisations have a wastewater treatment (or effluent treatment) plant (EFT) as part of their production infrastructure. Although effective, sometimes this is insufficient due to numerous reasons. For example, manufacturing capacity may increase due to company growth. Equally, the EFT may be old, ineffective or failing for some reason. These and other reasons can cause treatment capacity deficit. The company then needs either large additional investment for expansion or to transport effluent for treatment elsewhere. This comes at a considerable cost.
