Industrial Effluent Technology
Meeting the Demands of the 21st Century
Manchester, UK: 19-20 October 1998

Papers presented at this conference, as outlined in the Contents below, are available in a bound volume of proceedings from Mrs Marian Rolfe at BHR Group.

Pressure is on for Waste Water Costs

The cost of wastewater disposal from industrial processes is one of the greatest problems facing industry today. Environmental concerns and new EC standards have forced costs up as industry struggles to comply with stricter regulations. Introduction of the proposed ‘green taxes' on effluent discharges would mean even higher costs.

While regulatory bodies have created these economic drivers, industry must also address commercial and other external influences, such as technology changes, that can add to the cost burden.

Water service companies may take differing views on the effects of these pressures. Some may be concerned about loss of revenue and staff reductions due to customers treating their own sewage. But others may find that customer self treatment initiatives help reduce peak operational capacity at sewage works and therefore alleviate the need for additional capital expenditure.

For waste generators, deciding whether to treat waste effluent on-site or to contract the responsibility to the water service companies has never been more difficult.

Industrial Effluent Technology: Meeting The Demands Of The 21st Century was designed to provide senior managers, professionals and other decision makers with up to date information on the issues they must address.
