Approach in Choosing Suitable Technology for Industrial Wastewater Treatment


Mahmoud A. Elsheikh and Waleed K. Al-Hemaidi

The increasing growth of rapid industrial developments causes the formation of huge amount of wastewater loaded with numerous organic compounds unacceptable for the environment and human health as well. Many processes for treating industrial wastewater involve varieties technologies for reduction of toxicity in order to meet environmental-based treatment standards. This article reviews the recent developments and technical applicability of various treatments for the removal of different contaminants from industrial wastewater. A particular focus is given to the factors affecting the selection of appropriate technologies for controlling and managing of a specified industry effluent. Subsequent to the selection of appropriate treatment technology, more pilot-plant scale experiments with real industrial wastewater must be performed on a larger scale. However, there are a very wide variety of technologies for choosing a suitable individual to treat specified wastes; intergradations of more than one technology could be more economic for removal of high strength and toxic industrial. The new integrated technology requires assessing the complete wastewater treatment in order to be reused in the industry itself.
