Improved waste management through automation can deliver more efficient waste treatment, reduced energy and chemical consumption and improved effluent quality. The cost of treatment and trade discharge can thus be significantly reduced.

The ability to collect useful data about sediment transport and other pollutants closely coupled to SSC (such as nutrients, e-coli, phosphates and nitrates) is dependent on the timing and frequency of manual grab samples during run-off events. Most sediment and pollutant is transported during a small number of storm events which are infrequent and unpredictable. When they do occur, trained personnel or the proper equipment may not be available to collect grab samples. An automated pump sampler can eliminate the...

Automation can save money, optimise a process and give warning of potential breeches of discharge consent. However, instrument selection is fundamentally important if a control system is to function efficiently. The measurement device must accurately and quickly respond to process variations and it must be reliable in operation if the control system is to function as intended. Designed properly, energy and chemical use can be significantly reduced, saving money and ultimately improving effluent quality.
Several on-line monitoring technologies such as non-destructive types have become increasingly important due to the increasing automation and the incorporation of new and more efficient processes in the food industry. Food quality and safety of food are the main points of interest, while adjacent processes such as process water and waste water treatment present new challenges to larger food companies.
