Recycling of Industrial Waste Water & Sewage Water

Recycling of Industrial Waste Water & Sewage Water

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 minimise such production or recycle such wastewater within the production process. However, many industries remain dependent on processes that produce wastewaters.

Coagulation may be used for the clarification of industrial wastes containing colloidal and suspended solids. Paperboard wastes can be coagulated effectively with low dosages of alum. Silica or polyelectrolyte aids in the formation of a rapid-settling flock

One of the major applications of ion exchange in industrial waste treatment has been in the plating industry, where chromium recovery and water reuse have resulted in considerable savings.
