The Effluent Treatment Plant is designed to treat the effluent i.e. waste water coming from different sources like Industrial or Commercial establishments. Water is one of the most important components used in all type of industry. It may be used for washing, cooling, heat exchanging, condensing the steam etc, but water used in industry is not totally consumed. Hence almost all industries generate waste water. Improper discharge of waste water can pollute local environment in many manufacturing industries. By- product can be treated as waste water called “effluent” should be treated before it is released into the environment.
Effluent is an outflow of water or gas from a natural body of water, or from a human made structure.
Effluent is defined as treated or untreated waste water that flows out of a sewage or industrial/commercial outlet.
So this treatment of waste water i.e. untreated effluent is turned into treated effluent with the help of Effluent Treatment Plant. Clean water is then safely discharged into the environment.
