Wastewater treatment is a very important operation of any industry because it protects the health of various ecosystems. A properly treated wastewater can be a reliable source for many purposes. Properly treated effluent can be reused leading to sustainability and nature preservation.
Forestall water-borne Pollution:
Wastewater treatment systems are specifically designed to prevent water-borne pollution. The insufficient treatment causes fecal sludge and other forms of water pollution which can spread disease and drive antimicrobial resistance.
Prevent Industrial Equipment Damage:
If residual wastes are left to enter other equipment and processes, it may cause detrimental damage and also may reduce liquid-based wastewater treatment processing capacity.
Protects wildlife and its Habitats:
Clean Water systems are essential for habitats. From inland waters to waterfront regions, there are plentiful lifeforms that depend on spotless, plentiful water. Polluted and toxic water systems cannot hold onto wildlife and the natural processes that come along with it.
Promote Health and well being:
Only three percent of the earth’s water is consumable. Nature can clean wastewater yet it requires some time. Wastewater treatment systems speed up the cleanup and make it reusable. Wastewater treatment is a process that aids the natural environment in cleaning the world’s water system. Pointed toward working on the general regular nature, water isn’t just spotless and consumable but also healthy enough for the survival of humans and nature
Methods of Wastewater Treatment:
Chemical Treatment :
Chemical treatment of wastewater uses chemical reactants to break down pollutants. It is ideal for wastewater with high chemical toxin contents, such as the wastewater from chemical or pharmaceutical manufacturing, pump and paper mills, laboratories, and textile manufacturers. It is also optimal for removing the heavy metals found in mining wastewater. The chemical effluent treatment plants (ETPs) that treat these wastes use chemical treatment methods
Biological Treatment :
The main alternative to chemical wastewater treatment is biological wastewater treatment. Instead of using chemicals to break down waste, this process uses beneficial microorganisms to biodegrade waste material. Biological wastewater treatment is best at removing contaminants that biodegrade easily. Compounds with simple molecular structures – monomers and dimers, rather than complex polymers – are easiest for microorganisms to digest.
Electrochemical Treatment :
Electrochemical water treatment systems utilize electricity to induce the removal of dissolved contaminants in the water. Positively charged contaminants such as calcium, magnesium, sodium, lead, and uranium are called cations. Negatively charged contaminants such as chlorides, nitrates, nitrites, sulfates, and fluorides, are called anions.
Electrochemical treatment is very efficient and reduces process detention time.
Pristine Water offers E-Coag ETP using Electrocoagulation system method for wastewater treatment, which is a technological enhancement on the conventional chemical coagulation method. Water contaminants such as ions of heavy metals and colloids are primarily held together by electrical charges. In the Pristine Water ElectroCoagulation system, these contaminant molecules are destabilized by the addition of ions having a charge opposite to that of the colloid. The destabilized colloids become larger particles and are aggregated and subsequently removed by sedimentation and/or filtration. The anodes used in our systems are known as “Sacrificial anodes” as they dissolve during the Electrocoagulation process. Periodic easy replacements of these anodes are the only maintenance that the system needs.
Pristine Water E-Coag ETP is a proven treatment for removing:
Toxic heavy metals,
Suspended and colloidal solids,
Fats, oil, and grease by breaking oil emulsions and hydrocarbons in water,
Complex organic waste like arsenic and silica,
Bacteria, viruses, cysts, and parasites,
Toxic and refractory compounds,
Pesticides and insecticides,
Phenols and polyphenols,
Cyanides and nitrites,
Hardness of calcium and magnesium salts,
Certain radioactive compounds etc.
