This good practice guide deals with a number of issues faced by organisations operating paper and board mills and wishing to identify and implement process improvements, in particular the reduction of water and chemical usage, and wastewater and effluent costs.
Improving effluent treatment plant performance to reduce operating costs, comply with discharge consent conditions and minimise environmental pollution is high on the agenda of many industrial organisations.
This informative good practice guide deals with a number of issues faced by organisations involved in poultry meat processing and wishing to identify and implement process improvements, in particular the reduction of water, wastewater and effluent costs.
This case study examines issues involved in the treatment of waste oily water from engineering and industrial workshops.
Engineering workshops use large quantities of water-based metalworking fluids to remove heat and swarf from the cutting surfaces and reduce friction between the tools and the work-piece.
The UK brewing industry uses large amounts of water, of which over 70% ends up as trade effluent.
Unit costs for water supply and trade effluent discharge are expected to continue to rise as water companies invest in the new plant needed to comply with EC and UK legislation.
This informative good practice guide deals with a number of issues faced by operators of paper and board mills, focusing on the optimisation of waste management processes including improving the performance of effluent treatment plant.
A recent study of effluent treatment practices has determined the feasibility of developing a Toolkit for the selection of the best effluent management solutions for specialised organic chemicals manufacturers, especially those with ‘hard COD’ problems.
