Waste water in this sector has a high concentration of heavy metals, oils and products in decomposition. The oils and emulgents lead to foam production at the water treatment plants. The treatment of these oils is very important.

It is estimated that 23-28% of Sanitary Sewer Overflows (SSOs) are due to Fats, Oil and Grease (FOG). With significant growth in the commercial food sector on top of other high FOG producing industries such as metal processors, meat packers, cosmetic manufacturers and industrial laundry establishments, the need for publicly owned treatment plants (POTWs) and industries to regulate and monitor FOG is crucial to public health. Besides clogged sewer lines, high FOG levels also disrupt the effective operation of a wastewater treatment plant. An important feature of any FOG program is locating and monitoring high oil and grease producing industries and food service establishments. InfraCal TOG/TPH Analyzers provide a simplified procedure for FOG analysis based on solvent extraction and infrared absorption which can give the regulator or operator an on-site result in less than 10 minutes.

Securing a reliable supply of water for extraction, handling and transportation is vitally important to mining companies looking to expand their operations. These companies will go to great lengths to meet this need, running pipelines hundreds of miles long from desalination plants on the coast and treating wastewater that is conventional held in tailings ponds. Wastewater treatment technologies can recover saleable metal that might otherwise be lost and prevent environmental contamination from highly acidic effluent streams. Developing the infrastructure and technologies to meet these challenges in the mining industry is driving a market worth $11.9 billon.
