Water Treatment Equipment

Water Treatment Equipment – Implementing measures to reduce wastewater generation will not only reduce the amount of wastewater generated, but may also improve the quality of your effluents, therefore reducing pollutants released. Recovering some substances from your wastewater streams can also reduce your need for raw materials..

After analysing its wastewater streams, one company recovered and reused the Ethyl acetate solvent from its wet processes. This led to the recovery of 70% of the solvent and savings up to 6 900 USD/year.

Except for the working time of employees involved in the project, no extra costs are associated with this option. The measure will help you to identify “low-hanging” improvement options, which can be realised at a low cost and allow large reductions of your environmental impacts.

This option supports you in getting an overview of the amount and toxicity of chemical use in your company.

Chemical consumption is one of the major sources of health and safety risks in the textile industry. It also implies high operating costs and environmental impacts. Therefore, it is important to manage your chemical consumption by collecting and generating data, to improve your efficiency. The reason behind it is simple: “if you don’t measure it, you can’t manage it”. Using the generated data will help you to draw a trend line of your performance over different time-periods (benchmark), to identify improvement options and to set targets. With a benchmarking process you can compare your performance internally as well as externally, with industry averages or competitors.

In order to determine the chemical consumption you can use the following table. Point out the most important (both in amount and toxicity) chemicals used and their respective processes location and list them in the table. Where possible, specify the amount and the type of the chemical used. In the case of chemicals, the possible impacts on the environment and employee’s health and safety, e.g. toxicity, are important to consider. For example, a very small quantity of a highly hazardous substance may have more important economic and environmental impacts than some other less toxic substance. If available, use data from the last fiscal year or the last quarter and state the chosen time-period in the table. Otherwise collect the necessary information.
