Colour contamination in wastewater has serious environmental consequences which can directly impact your business.

Removing Colour from Wastewater

Organisations are under increasing pressure to meet strict discharge and trade effluent regulations with the fear of incurring heavy fines. These regulations include restrictions on the colour of water being discharged.

Manufacturing facilities that have failed to treat contaminated discoloured wastewater have also been subject to negative press which has caused reputational damage, impacting upon customer loyalty. From a different viewpoint, drinking water supplied by local utilities is also directly impacted by colour as consumers demand an aesthetically pleasing clear supply at all times.

Employing water treatment methods which effectively remove colour from water and wastewater, can not only help to avoid fines, but can also save money by allowing wastewater to be reused during manufacturing processes.
