We analyze the presence of commerical and industrial discharges, the region, the age/condition of the collection system and the regulations for that region. Customer's can monitor their systems with state of the art remote monitoring equipment as well. Read more...
Chemical & Pharmaceutical
This waste stream can have complex characteristics: Biocides, heavy metals, pharmaceutical intermediates and endocrine disruptors. We are familiar and know how to marry appropriate treatment to make sure you are compliant.
This wastewater typically contains a lower biochemical to chemical oxygen demand. We determine biodegradability of each waste stream and the presence of toxic or inhibitory compounds.
This wastewater contains calcium ions that form salt complexes with phosphate, carbonate, sulfate and other ions. We have experience with how to handle scaling issues and salt control. Read more...
Food & Beverage
We know how to optimize treatment configurations such that a customer's Clean-in-Place (CIP) and Clean-out-of-place (COP) chemicals (acid/alkali, quaternary ammonium salts, ozone, peroxide etc...) do not hinder compliance. Read more...
Pulp & Paper
Wastewater treatment processes considered for this industry must address industry specific nuances like slug discharges of pulp, stormwater runoff and air emissions for compounds such as total reduced sulfur (TRS).
In this manufacturing process the wastewater can contain large quantity of organic solvent such as developers, strippers and rinse liquid waste. The wastewater will then consist of difficult and non-biodegradable chemicals. Read more...
Characteristics and treatability of wastewater generated by the textile industry depend on the raw materials used and type of finish product each mill produces. Textile mills typically are sited on large tracts of land, have dedicated surface or groundwater supplies, and may discharge treated effluent to surface waters.
The mining industry has the potential to use large amounts of wastewater in its operations. Often times these waste streams contain contaminants that require treatment before the water can be re-used or discharged. Biowater has successfully installed highly efficient biofilm treatment processes including our complete mix fixed film (CMFF®) system to remove BOD/COD, and nitrogen from mining waste streams. Biowater’s technologies, such as our CFIC® process, can produce effluent water quality that is acceptable for re-use, reducing the stress on ecosystems in water stressed areas.
