Used industrial water

Resulting from extraction or the transformation of raw materials with a view to manufacturing industrial products or consumer goods, used industrial water is extremely heterogeneous.

Containing a wide spectrum of chemical pollutants, residual industrial water is very varied in nature (solid or dissolved components, polymers, oil etc.). It thus requires specific and made to measure treatment processes, adjusted for each issue according to the type of industry, the characteristics of the waste and the norms of the sector in force.

John Cockerill offers different treatment technologies according to the type of effluent to be treated:

  • Neutralization
  • Coagulation
  • Flocculation
  • Strip decanting
  • Oil removal
  • Oil removal
  • Filtration on sand or activated carbon
  • Ultra-filtration
  • Nano-filtration, inverse osmosis
  • Biological treatment through activated sludge, bio-filters, bio-discs...
  • Anaerobic treatment
