Effluent Treatment for Small-Scale Industries: Tailored Solutions


All small-scale industries have the same peculiar problem regarding their waste management and effluent treatment, they usually does not have enough space and resources, and thus, they need a tailored solution for their effluent treatment and here in this blog we are going to discuss the solution for the same.

Effluent Treatment for Small-Scale Industries and a Tailored Solutions

Before getting into the solution we need to understand that Effluent Treatment Plant is the best way for effluent treatment but the problem which a small-scale industry facing is not merely a financial or space related problem but both, and thus to find the solution we need to consider both the points. Well, here are few of the solutions which may cater the financial as well as the space related problem of the small-scale industry while dealing with effluent treatment;-

  • Waste Minimization: First and foremost priority of every small-scale industries should to minimize the waste by all possible means. Now, for minimizing the waste the industries should opt such policies and find ways which may decrease the waste.
  • Assessment and Characterization: Characterization of the waste material is second important thing to follow, without assessing and characterising the waste material one cannot find the way to dispose the same, and thus, to deal with the waste you need to categorise the waste material in terms of chemical, Solid, compostable, and indecomposable waste and then to deal with it.
  • Segregation: Separate different types of effluents at the source. For example, segregate oil and grease from water-based effluents. The process of segregation makes treatment more efficient and cost-effective and thus help saving monetary resources.
  • Treatment Options: The waste material present in effluent is different from each other and thus needs different treatments. So, after categorization and segregation of the effluent we need to treat them likewise.
    • Physical Treatment: Physical Treatment includes the process of Sedimentation, screening, and filtration to remove solid particles from the effluent.
    • Chemical Treatment: Chemical treatment includes the Coagulation, flocculation, and chemical precipitation of effluent for removing metals and other contaminants.
    • Biological Treatment: Anaerobic and aerobic processes can be used to treat organic pollutants through microbial degradation. The process of biological treatment is necessary to deal with the biological waste present in the wastewater.
    • Membrane Filtration: Microfiltration, ultrafiltration, or reverse osmosis can be used to separate solids and contaminants from the effluent. The membrane Filtration or reverse osmosis process in generally used in ETP for the purpose of filtration of wastewater.
  • Modular and Compact Systems: The small scale industries can use the modular and compact treatment systems that can be customized to fit the available area. More-often the problem with the small-scale industries is that, they does not have enough space to fit in big waste water treatment plant and thus they can use the compact system.
  • Automation: One can implement automation and monitoring systems to ensure the treatment process is efficient and to reduce the need for continuous manual intervention. The decrease of manual intervention remove the labour cost in long term and thus lead the monetary profit.
  • Cost Considerations: Small-scale industries typically have limited budgets and resources. Thus, they should choose cost-effective treatment methods that match the budget constraints and help in wastewater treatment.
  • Environmental Impact Assessment: Waste produced by industries led the environmental impact and the industries are meant to follow the environmental regulation. So, the Water quality management and environmental friendliness of the industrial plant is must.
  • Outsourcing: Outsourcing of the waste is the last step for the small-scale industries, and should only be followed if all other options are exhausted, because many a times outsourcing of the waste for processing proves to be costly, and that’s why preferring modular and compact systems are more viable.

Well, for Effluent Treatment or sewage treatment best way to follow is to establish a small sized Effluent Treatment Plant and if establishing such plant is not possible then the small-scale industries may follow the above mentioned method for the removal of the waste water and by using the above methods they can solve their monetary constraint and remove the waste without any extra burden.

The above mentioned methods are the best tailored solution for removal of the wastewater for any small scale industries in minimum monetary expense, by using the mentioned ways and options, you can effectively manage and reduce the environmental impact of industrial operations while staying in compliance with regulatory requirements.
