Effluent treatment plant commonly known as ETP or ETP plant, is a waste water treatment process (WWTP) used for treating the waste water & to meet pollution board laid disposal guidelines & norms.
ETP plant involves wastewater treatment process for treating contaminants in the form of organic matter, inorganic matter, heavy metals, oil & grease, suspended solids etc. The treatment methodology can be either batch process or continuous flow process.
Effluent treatment plant or wastewater treatment plant are further categorized into Chemical treatment, Biological treatment , combination of chemical & biological treatment.
WASTEWATER TREATMENT & WASTEWATER MANAGEMENT:
Industries generate waste water as per the impurities involved in their own specific application or industrial processes, the main purpose of any wastewater treatment process is to protect environment and to attain & reduce the impurities level below the local pollution norms & desired treated water application.
Wastewater management is one of the biggest challenge in today’s scenario & thus generates requirement of having advanced wastewater treatment plants.
The prime objective of advanced wastewater treatment & wastewater management is-
To reduce generation of waste water from its source.
To treat the wastewater at minimal running cost & operation cost.
To install the WWTP (wastewater treatment plant) or ETP at lesser capital expenditure.
To install the wastewater treatment process in small footprint area.
To achieve reusable quality from ETP or WWTP process at lesser Opex & lesser Capex.
