Wastewater - Whitepaper


What if we simply didn't treat wastewater?

‘If our wastewater is going to be treated at a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) anyway, why can’t my people simply pour it down the drain?’ As BakerCorp’s Filtration Manager for its European operations, it’s something I’m often asked. And it’s a very reasonable question.

The answer is that, whether municipal or industrial, all WWTPs are only designed to manage certain pollution loads, which are a combination of composition, flow and concentration. Exceed those loads and the WWTP can’t cope. In practice, this means that if you operate in certain industries and/or generate wastewater, you must either fully treat or pre-treat that wastewater yourself. Just one reason why carrying out your own treatment can make sense.
