Wastewater treatment is the process that removes the majority of the contaminants from wastewater or sewage and produces both a liquid effluent suitable for disposal to the natural environment. There are two main polluted sources needed for treating which are municipal wastewaters and industrial liquid wastes. The main goal of wastewater treatment is to minimize the burden on the receiving watercourses by removing all organic, oxygen-consuming compounds and nutrients. Once treated wastewater can be released back into the water system or recycled for use.
Lime solutions are used at various stages of the effluent and wastewater treatment process, for a wide range of applications including:
- Acid neutralization
- Solids Precipitation
- Coagulation and pH control
- Metallic contaminants removal
We work closely with our customers to identify the most efficient, cost-effective and sustainable lime solutions for their wastewater requirements, ensuring maximum return on investment.
