Wastewater Treatment

The importance of complete wastewater management

In order to meet regulations and minimise their impact on the environment, businesses must maintain industrial wastewater management best practices. “Wastewater” encompasses used water that contains hydrocarbons, AFFF foams, PFAS, chemicals or oils. Industries need to ensure their waste is properly treated before releasing it back into the environment.

The treatment plant at GRR treats wastewater by confirming and removing pollutants, benefiting human health, wildlife, and the planet. Treatment processes are famously complex, thanks to the wide variety of potential pollutants in wastewater streams.

We provide start-to-end wastewater management that includes the collection, separation, treatment, disposal and reusing of water. This generates clean water which can then be discharged to the trade waste system or recycled for use in industry. With around-the-clock plant operation and state-of-the-art methodologies, businesses can minimise waste in the most efficient ways possible.

Making short work of contaminants in wastewater

Utilising our state-of-the-art laboratory, Global Resource Recovery locates and confirms any pollutants present, and then formulates and stimulates treatment methodologies that can be applied in our physiochemical plant. We discharge or recycle clean water, and solid material is dewatered through a filter press, before being sent to thermal treatment plants or landfill.

In case of further contamination of the wastewater by PFAS (perfluoroalkyl substances) and hydrocarbons, we pass this through a media filtration unit which separates contaminates from the water, to ensure the treated water is safe for disposal. Our facilities also have a reverse osmosis unit to remove salt, making them well equipped to process brine and high saline waste streams.

We test every waste stream received to deliver a bespoke solution in compliance with Trade Waste Agreement guidelines. Combining rigorously lab-tested treatments with industry-leading technologies, GRR provides a range of physiochemical wastewater treatment services from our licensed facilities in Victoria and Northern Territory. Our wastewater systems ensures a range of contaminants are properly dealt with, including:

  • Heavy metals
  • Condensate
  • Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS)
  • Ammonia
  • Sulphates
  • Suspended solids
  • Amine wash waters with piperazine and inorganic salts
