The removal of heavy metals from waste streams is one of the most important applications in industrial wastewater treatment.
Metals in waste streams don't naturally degrade and are toxic to aquatic life, even at low concentrations. GE provides 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.
- Reduced treatment costs
- Improved ability to meet regulatory requirements
- Reduced potential for future remediation
- Improved community health
