Every industry produces liquid and solid wastes with different amounts of hazardous substances and emissions to air, while water usage is intensive in textiles, leather chemical treatment processes and tanning processes. Imagine the serious health and environment concerns if waste water is allowed to accumulate or is disposed without treatment.
The ultimate goal of waste water management is to protect the environment by addressing financial, social and political concerns. However, major challenges with water scarcity, treatment of waste water, channelising the waste discharge & disposal, compliance to permit limits can hinder the goal of waste water management. On top of these challenges, structural arrangement, engineering approach, chemicals in use, various treatment technologies are inter-dependent and attribute to energy loss and gain in the absence of simplified technology.
In this webinar, we highlight the challenges and possible solutions for an effective, overall waste water management system.
