WASTE: Environmental Issues - Industrial Wastewater Treatment

By Lamika Zuberi

With the world getting so over populated, we are always looking towards inventing some new procedures for cleaning and protecting our environment. The soil, water and air that compose our environment have to be purified to protect our health from harmful elements that can attack our immune system and make us sick. Several diseases and health conditions can be prevented by simply keeping our soil, water and air clean. Several NGO's and environmental agencies are working towards making this earth a better place to live in.

Rivers are a source of water and hardly any river these days has pure water to offer. Throughout the world, factories and mills pollute the rivers by dumping waste chemicals there. Water that is contaminated causes serious damage to human health. In Africa and other third world countries, hundreds and thousands of people die each year due to drinking contaminated water. These countries are poor and their governments cannot afford to purify water for prevention of death from diseases such as gastroenteritis caused by Salmonella enteritidis. Simple water treatments plants can solve this problem easily.

Most waste water is also treatable using water treatment plants to make this water re-useable. Large factories that produce loads of waste-water can recycle the water through the waste-water treatment plant. This way these factories help keep the environment clean and healthy and also re-use water. There are various water treatment solutions available that you can even evaluate online and before you make a decision, check to ensure that it meets your requirements.
