Over the past decade, Diversified Plastics has become a leading provider of sprockets and other plastic components to the wastewater industry. This is, in part, because many treatment facilities are moving away from metal and toward plastic components.
- Plastic components are much lighter than steel, reducing shipping costs and making them far easier and less labor-intensive to install.
- Plastic components are as or more durable than steel and reduce friction, which lengthens the life of the mating components and also lowers energy consumption.
- Plastic components not only cost less to purchase upfront, they reduce long-term maintenance costs.

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.

These days we are becoming more and more aware of our environmental impact and carbon footprint, and in some cases the Government may even penalise companies who are not doing all they can to minimise the environmental impact of their activities. The Environment Agency instill certain limitations for industrial waste water users in regards to where and how water may be discharged – whether accidentally or purposefully, the discharge of waste water in to a river can lead to costly fines and very bad PR for your company.

Direct reuse of wastewater in the product is not on the menu in the food and beverage industry, but the reuse of water for other purposes (e.g. washing) is now a priority. Most major F&B companies have made commitments to reduce their water consumption per unit of product, and reuse is an important part of the strategy for achieving this. Furthermore much of the growth of the industry is in emerging markets which typically have more limited, lower quality water resources than developed countries, creating water treatment challenges. In developed markets, emerging concerns about pharmaceutical by-products and other trace contaminants making their way into the product have lead to greater use of desalination technologies on the process water side. Value from waste propositions such as energy recovery, water reuse (not within the product) and materials recovery ensure that investment in water technology benefits the bottom line.

Water is one of the most important raw materials for industrial production. For this reason, processes are now used in water treatment that not only produce the required water quality, but also allow for recycling. The treated water can either be fed back into the process, or reused for other purposes. Water recycling plants lead to a significant reduction in operational costs for production.
