Applying a wastewater treatment process to treat a side stream of effluent for use to flush toilets or irrigate land onsite would provide a major contribution to water conservation.
Wastewater management involves the reduction of the overall COD (chemical oxygen demand) in water, as well as the removal of colour or specific contaminants in certain cases which are known to have adverse effects, such as volatile organic chemicals (VOCs).
Existing technologies such as activated carbon, Fentons and other AOPs either move the contamination out of the water but do not destroy it, or destroy it using water treatment chemicals, which come with their own harmful environmental impacts.
The Nyex™ processes are considerate to the environment, provide water treatment for various organic chemicals and types of pollution, including colour. These advanced water technologies manage industrial wastewater with low maintenance, no requirement to apply for consent to discharge to the sewer and also enable the recycling of industrial wastewater.
