Sewage treatment consists of a multistage process for separating pollution from wastewater, including both residential and industrial sources. The process largely consists of three stages that use physical, biological, and chemical methods of purification.
Sewage treatment stages
During the initial primary treatment, waste that settles or floats is separated from the incoming sewage. The secondary treatment uses microorganisms to remove biological matter. The final tertiary treatment uses chemicals or micro-filtering to remove contaminants prior to reintroducing into the environment.
Odours that are emitted during sewage treatment are usually due to septic conditions. Our product NoFlex Digestor can assist during the separation treatment, while also removing odours during the process.
Treated water uses
Depending on the level of sophistication of sewage treatment, treated water can have a variety of uses, from irrigation to agricultural applications, to drinking water. This is particularly important where clean drinking water is scarce.
