The importance of chemistry for treatment of raw water and effluent
Chemical treatment is a vital part of raw water and wastewater processing in industrial manufacturing. The requirements of any plant will vary depending on the industry, processes and wastewater plant – as well as local or national regulations and licence conditions – the chemicals used, pH neutralisers, anti-foaming agents, coagulants and flocculants can have a dramatic impact on plant performance. We look at the purpose of these chemicals and how optimisation of wastewater dosing can save time and money.
