Hazardous waste water goes down the drain

Paul Boughton

Hazardous waste water can be disposed of in the sewer, or used elsewhere, after being cleaned by a system that removes both organic and inorganic waste streams down to a level of parts per trillion.

For pharmaceutical companies this brings big savings in contaminated waste water disposal, and also means the water can be reused where appropriate.

The Sentinel aqueous effluent treatment system from WMEC limited is used worldwide to decontaminate organic and inorganic waste in volumes ranging from as little as 20 litres, up to 50,000 litres per day.

It uses a process that breaks the chemical bond between active materials and water, called flocculation, followed by sedimentation and adsorption so that clarified water can be separated from contaminates.

The equipment is easy to operate at all skill levels and is designed to pay for itself within a year, with some companies reporting a return within two months on alternative disposal costs.
