In recent years it has become more and more apparent that we all have a responsibility to do everything we can to protect the environment and wastewater treatment is an important aspect of this. In the past, many businesses have simply dumped their wastewater or the sludge without any regard for the impact that has on the surrounding environment. Here at Environmental Screening and Separation, we provide the latest in wastewater treatment equipment that can help your business be as environmentally friendly as possible. So how does the wastewater treatment process work?
The wastewater is initially screened for any large foreign solid objects that are easily removed from the water. This can include objects such as face wipes and cotton buds.
2. Primary Treatment
This step involves the separation and removal of any organic solid matter. The wastewater is allowed to settle in a tank which results in all waste matter sinking to the bottom of the tank to form sludge which is removed from the water.
3. Secondary Treatment
The water then travels into aeration lanes for the removal of any smaller organic matter that was not removed during the primary treatments and of any harmful bugs.
4. Final Treatment
The final stage of treatment, again, allows the water to settle in a tank which causes bacteria to sink to the bottom forming more sludge. After all of the sludge and harmful bacteria are removed from the wastewater, it is then ready to be put back into rivers as clean water.
This process is essential to minimise any impact on the environment. Here at Environmental Screening and Separation, we ensure that our treatment service meets all regulations and restrictions set by the Environmental Agency.
