Surface and Ground Water Pollution
The challenge of water in the 21st century is one of both quantity and quality.
Contaminants in water
Both human activities and natural activities can change the physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of water, and will have specific ramifications for human and ecosystem health. Water quality is affected by changes in nutrients, sedimentation, temperature, pH, heavy metals, non-metallic toxins, persistent organics and pesticides, and biological factors, among many other factors (Carr and Neary 2008)
Industrial activities are a significant and growing cause of poor water quality. Industry and energy production use accounts for nearly 20 percent of total global water withdrawals (UN WWAP 2009), and this water is typically returned to its source in a degraded condition. Wastewater from industrial facilities such as power plants, paper mills, pharmaceutical manufacturers, semiconductor fabrication plants, chemical plants, petroleum refineries, and bottling facilities, and processes such as mining and drilling, all contribute to poor water quality around the world.
Moving to solutions and actions
Effective solutions to water quality challenges exist and have been implemented in a number of places. It is time for a global focus on protecting and improving the quality of the world’s freshwater resources. There are three fundamental solutions to water quality problems: (1) prevent pollution; (2) treat polluted water; and (3) restore ecosystems.
In many developing areas, where wastewater management has historically received less attention than process or supply water treatment, new wastewater quality requirements will promote increased use of water treatment chemicals to remove pollutants before wastewater is discharged to the environment or is reused. Our Company specializes in developing chemicals for specialized industrial waste water and urban sewage in collaboration with international accredited research institutions. We are also a comprehensive enterprise integrating research, development, production, trading and service of chemicals.
The unique characteristics of our range ensure novel properties and technical solutions to problems that have been challenging to solve with conventional technologies. This include abilities such as decolourization, removal of COD, BOD, Phosphates, Sulphates, TDS, Heavy Metals etc especially in the Textile, Printing, Dying, Paper-making, Mining etc sectors.
