Implementing sustainable water practices means a brighter future for our planet and can also significantly impact the bottom line.
Commercial and industrial laundries require high water usage. The contaminated wastewater (grit, soil, grease and detergents) is often very concentrated, and when compared with residential laundries can create a heavy load on municipal wastewater treatments plants. Most authorities will stipulate sewer discharge limits for commercial and industrial laundries.
Aerofloat’s expertise in understanding the contaminants in laundry and textile wastewater can ensure a compliant solution for your business and create opportunities for wastewater reuse, saving on both trade waste charges and water usage costs. Aerofloat has been in discussions with a number of large industrial laundries regarding treatment and reuse.
Aerofloat completed a large project for Visy in a remote part of New Zealand, where the manufacturing plant was not connected to the sewer line. The local authorities insisted that the heavily contaminated process wastewater be treated to a level suitable for discharge. Aerofloat was able to treat this highly polluted inky wastewater to a high quality water not only suitable for irrigation purposes, but also for reuse in the starch makeup and the boiler feed – resulting in a closed loop recycle system.
