The article reports on the pressure faced by plant managers concerning wastewater problems in Great Britain. It cites Manchester pickle factory, which uses a Carier RS/1000 Rotoscreen separator/dewaterer from Linton Solutions and has made a significant enhancements to the quality of its factory effluent, at the same time reduce discharge costs. It also cite scientists from the De Monfort University, who have studied the use of membrane bioreactor plants to reuse and recycle wastewater. INSET: Attractive savings.
