Wastewater Services

Biological treatment of wastewater is recognised as a responsible choice in the chemical industry. The process uses bacteria and other microorganisms to naturally degrade organic contaminants, resulting in a reduction of the biological oxygen demand (BOD) in the resulting effluent. This results in the release of readily usable water into the receiving stream.
