WASTEWATER TREATMENTEnvironmental Recovery Corporation processes non-hazardous industrial waste water. The facility is equipped with a charged neutralization system and incorporates dissolved air floatation units. ERC's facility can handle upwards of 250 gallons per minute and is permitted to take in 110,000 gallons per day.
ERC’s industrial wastewater treatment facility is designed in a three stage process. The first process removes oil, grease, dirt and inorganic contaminates. The second stage removes molybdenum and the third stage polishes out the remainder of heavy metals. The facility treats the water to acceptable parameters for discharge to city sewer system. All of the containments from wastewater streams are stabilized and sent to a lined landfill.
Ink and Dye Treatment:In addition to the main wastewater treatment system, ERC operates a treatment system to handle a variety of inks and dyes. These liquids run through ultra filtration system which is able to remove up to 99% of the color.
High Solid Loading:
ERC also operates a separate system that implements a plate and frame filter press to handle non-hazardous industrial wastewater with high solid loading.
Everything that is brought to the facility is tested before treatment. Lab technicians will take pre-samples of a perspective waste stream to get a basic idea of how to treat the water and authorize the treatment process. The normal testing time is approximately 30 minutes from the time the truck arrives and a sample is taken with a full analysis. Then the truck will be unloaded for processing. All documents are manifested with copies on hand.
