Industrial waste contains a diversity of impurities and therefore for this reason alone, its treatment constitutes a special task. Furthermore, the emission limits for industrial effluent are constantly being tightened up. Closed circuits and product recovery in various production processes are becoming an increasing priority among manufacturing companies. These measures represent an additional contribution to the protection of aquatic eco-systems and possess great cost-cutting potential. WABAG can refer to long-term experience in the industrial wastewater treatment sector. The resulting expertise is advantageously employed for the technical and economic optimization of every subsequent facility. The treatment process may contain mechanical, biological and chemical physical process steps. In the case of biological, anaerobic wastewater treatment we employ conventional processes and space-saving, high-performance reactors. We have completed a large number of large-scale plants on the basis of the world’s most frequently used UASB process. Other systems are also utilized in accordance with the characteristics of the wastewater, e.g. the activated sludge process Rapid industrialization has resulted in the generation of huge quantity of wastes, both solid and liquid, in industrial sectors such as sugar, pulp and paper, fruit and food processing, sago starch, distilleries, dairies, tanneries, slaughterhouses, poultries, etc. Despite requirements for pollution control measures, these wastes are generally dumped on land or discharged into water bodies, without adequate treatment, and thus become a large source of environmental pollution and health hazard.
