How Industries can Reduce Water Pollution More Effectively

When it comes to global water pollution, industrial waste makes up for the majority of the sources. Industrial waste comprises of the waste that is generated during the industrial processes. These wastes include garbage, scrap metals, oils, chemicals, dirt, gravel, concrete, trash and more. These pollutants are harming the environment, humans, animals and the flora. And, the water pollution is also one of the reasons for water crisis across the globe.

There is an urgent need to reduce water pollution and save the potable water from getting contaminated. There are many ways industries can reduce water pollution including advanced technology like pilot water treatment plants.

How Industries are Responsible for Water Pollution

Industries are the largest contributors of water pollution. The industrial waste that includes hazardous waste includes harmful chemicals and metals that can easily contaminate water sources.

More often than not, the industrial waste is discarded via wastewater and this untreated wastewater can contaminate the ground water. This is one of the primary reasons for water pollution. Some of the industrial pollutants include cleaning fluids, pesticides, metals like mercury, lead and nitrate. Oils and petrochemical can also make the water too polluted for drinking or for other manufacturing purposes.  

Impact of Water Pollution By Industries

The most obvious consequences of water pollution are water crisis. The world is already dealing with water crisis due to shortage of clean water. If the industries keep on contaminating the available potable water, the crisis is likely to get intense. Which is industries need to take some more steps to reduce the industrial waste or find a way to prevent those harmful elements from getting into to the natural water resources like rivers, lakes and sea.

Other impact of industrial water pollution is destruction of the environment. When harmful chemicals and elements get into ground water, rivers, lakes or in the soil, they can create a very unhealthy environment. Threat to life – animals, plants, and humans – due to the presence of these harmful element is one of the risks of water pollution by industrial waste.

Need for Reducing Water Pollution

Reducing water pollution is very important given the crisis the world is facing like global warming, water and food crisis and more. Water is very important for everyone, from plants to animals and humans to industries. Even industries and commercial establishment need clean water for their processes.

Clean water is the need of the hour and reducing water pollution will help bridge the gap between demand and supply. Apart from that, water recycling, preservation and wastewater treatment will also help reduce the impact of growing water crisis.

How Water Pollution can be Reduced?

There are various methods for reducing water pollution. Industries are already using some of the methods, but more advanced methods are needed to tackle the problem. Here are some of the ways industries can reduce water pollution:

  • Reducing the waste produced so that the wastewater will help lesser number of contaminants in it. Industries can also change the composition of the products that are made to reduce the waste produced from them.
  • Reduce or completely eliminate the dangerous materials used in the production process. This can greatly reduce the amount of waste that is produced during the process.
  • Adopting the strategy of waste management system, waste minimization programs, loss prevention, and waste segregation, can help reduce water pollution.
  • Recycling water is another great way to reduce water pollution. But this will include water treatment before the water can be used or released into the nature.
  • Water treatment plants are helping industries fight the problem of water pollution. This is an advanced and highly effective method that can help industries become more responsible.

These are some of the best methods that industries can use to reduce water pollution and act responsibly to make the world a better place to live.

Pilot Water Treatment Plants

There are various methods that industries can use to reduce water pollution and one of them water treatment. Water treatment process can eliminate the most dangerous of elements from the water. After treatment, the wastewater can either be eliminated by realizing it or reusing it. Either way, water treatment is one of the best methods of reducing water pollution.

In order to create an effective water treatment plant, industries need pilot water treatment plants. What are pilot water treatment plants? They are small-scale water treatment plants used for conducting tests and experiments to gather data like effective methods, cost estimation, effectiveness and more. After this, the same water treatment plant can be established in a larger scale to meet the needs of particular industry’s water treatment needs.

What are the Methods used in Water Treatment Plants?

There are various types of methods used for water treatment. Depending on the results you want to see, cost, establishment requirements and preferences, industries can choose from the following methods:

  • Reverse Osmosis
  • Ultrafiltration, Nano and Microfiltration
  • Adsorption Desalination
  • Membrane Distillation
  • Forward Osmosis

All these water treatment methods are highly effective. When used in pilot water treatment plants, they offer valuable data that can be used later to establish a fully-blown water treatment set-up at their premises.

The Bottomline

Reducing water pollution is the need of the hour and industries can use various methods for achieving these goals. Pilot water treatment plants can help industries find an effective solution for their water treatment needs. It can help address a wide range of issues like removing harmful contaminants, water recycling, reducing water wastage and much more. It is a highly effective, cost-saving and environmentally friendly solution that can help industries become better.
