Automated Wastewater Treatment: Clean, Compliant and Cost-Effective
Employing fully automated wastewater-treatment systems makes complying
with EPA and local wastewater regulations much easier. Such systems not
only reliably meet regulatory wastewater requirements, but when using
the proper separating agents, also significantly reduce the cost of
treatment, labor and disposal.
