Waste Water Treatment & Recycling Systems
Waste water treatment is done in industrial-scale energy intensive wastewater treatment plants which include physical, chemical and biological treatment processes. Wastewater treatment and recycling uses septic tanks and other on-site sewage facilities in rural areas. Some wastewater may be highly treated and reused as reclaimed water. Waste water treatment includes also constructed wetlands. Tertiary treatment is being increasingly applied and most common technologies are micro filtration, after which the treated wastewater is indistinguishable from waters of natural origin of drinking quality, albeit without its minerals. Ozone Wastewater Treatment is also growing in popularity. Treated wastewater can be reused as drinking water, in industry, in artificial recharge of aquifers, in agriculture and in the rehabilitation of natural ecosystems.
