Heavy Metal Removal

Nalco understands that reduction in the concentration of heavy metals is an important part of the wastewater treatment process at your industrial plants. Many countries place limits on the concentration of various metals that may be discharged either directly to the environment or to a local treatment works. Further, the regulatory direction taken in the last five years has been much more restrictive in what metals and concentrations are permissible for water discharge into the environment.
