Setting up a business is hard work; particularly if you’re starting up an industrial business. There are all kinds of things you need to ensure are in place such as an effective waste water treatment plant. What you might not know if you’re just starting out is there are a number of legal requirements you need to meet when setting up a plant. There are also a few different types available. Below you’ll discover everything you need to know about choosing the right one for your business.
Understanding your legal obligations
The first thing you need to do is establish what your legal requirements are regarding an industrial wastewater treatment plant. You can find this information online, via your local government or via a professional wastewater treatment company. Integrated Effluent Solutions is just one of the top companies in the UK which offers training on the current environmental regulations you need to be aware of. It’s extremely important you become familiar with the legal requirements before you go ahead and build a plant.
What are your options?
There are many options you have when it comes to designing and building a trade effluent plant. The type of business you’re conducting will make a big difference to the type of plant you need. For example, you may need a heavy metal removal plant or a sulphate removal plant. The latter uses specialised sulphate removal technology to ensure the levels of sulphate are safe before they enter the sewage system. If there’s too much sulphate in your waste water, it could end up damaging the environment.
One great thing you can use to see which type of plant best fits your needs is a pilot plant trial. Integrated Effluent Solutions provides a great pilot plant trial which is tailored to fit each individual business. We also often refund the cost of the trial if you go on to purchase a new plant from us. It’s one of the easiest ways to see what works for your company before you invest in an actual plant.
Running a waste water treatment plant
Of course, investing in a wastewater treatment plant is one thing, but running it is another. Many plants require an operator to maintain the system at all times. Others don’t require as much monitoring. In order to properly maintain the system it helps if you hire a professional. They know exactly what to look out for and will be able to identify any potential problems.
Overall there is a lot to think about when looking into waste water treatment plants. Getting the right advice and choosing a professional, well-established company should be your first step.
