EBI's Karla King and George Bianco discuss the best practices for industrial wastewater pretreatment in the winter issue of the New England Water Environmental Association (NEWEA) Journal.
King and Bianco's article, Industrial Wastewater pretreatment--striking a balance among performance, safety and sustainability, explains the best practices for the selection of treatment chemicals in order to mitigate toxicity, improve treatment performance and provide other sustainability benefits. Looking at pretreatment from an environmental, health, and safety perspective, King and Bianco examine key steps to successful pretreatment including point source reduction, understanding changes to the upstream process and complying with regulatory requirements such as the Toxics Use Reduction Act (TURA). This article is intended to help an industrial operator strike a balance among obtaining adequate treatment, optimizing chemical use, minimizing toxic chemicals, and meeting permit requirements.
