Remove mercury, lead, and other heavy metals from your industrial waste streams
Metals in waste streams don't naturally degrade and are toxic to aquatic life, even at low concentrations. SUEZ provides wastewater treatment programs for industrial facility operators to reduce heavy metals in waste streams to help ensure regulatory compliance. Metals that can be removed include soluble and/or particulate heavy metals, such as lead, copper, chromium, iron, manganese, mercury, nickel and zinc.
How to Remove Heavy Metals From Water (Application and Treatment)
Proper application and treatment programs for removing heavy metals from water depend on many factors. These factors include the understanding, monitoring and documenting of operational conditions and the impact of wastewater variability on performance. When assessing your needs, SUEZ will bring firsthand knowledge of your system and how best to apply our water treatment products.
