It is a combination of multistage treatment techniques integrating advanced technologies which
coverts the treated STP water to potable grade or higher. Treated water from BOSON white water system
will meet most stringent water qualities required for Direct/Indirect potable reuse or any of the
high purity Industrial applications
What is the difference between an ETP and a STP?
ETPs are custom designed based on the quality of water of industrial effluents where as STPs are
designed based on standard feed conditions of Sewage. Treatment methods are standardized where as
ETP is a case specifically designed system
What is a ZLD?
Zero Liquid Discharge is an integrated wastewater treatment solution achieved by incorporating
various technologies and processes to practically recycle and reuse almost 100% of wastewater
(except for the minute losses in evaporation and moisture content of the salt).
Why do we use RO?
RO or Reverse Osmosis is used when there is a need to reduce concentration of Total Dissolved Solids
in the water/treated wastewater/
Can we drink the recycled water ?
Yes. The same needs to be tertiary treated in accordance with the quality requirements. Example :
Final treated water from BOSON white water systems are continuously tested and maintained to adhere
to IS 10500 drinking water standards.
What are the challenges faced in a STP?
Typically poor design, operational issues like inconsistency in treated water, improper biological
digestion are the challenges. A well operated/maintained STP usually runs consistently providing the
acceptable quality of treated water.
What is a grey water?
Domestic waste water generated from utilities and household activities without fecal contamination
(toilet waste) is termed as grey water.
Why should we treat wastewater ?
Nature has an amazing ability to cope with small amounts of water wastes and pollution. It would be overwhelmed if we didn't treat the billions of litres of wastewater and sewage produced every day before releasing it back to the environment. It is vital to treat the waste water for several reasons.
Protecting public health: Untreated or inadequately treated wastewater can contain harmful bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens that can cause waterborne diseases in humans and animals.
Protecting the environment: When untreated wastewater is discharged into rivers, lakes, or oceans, it can harm aquatic life and disrupt the ecosystem. Treating wastewater can help prevent these negative impacts on the environment.
Conserving water resources: Wastewater contains valuable nutrients and can be reused for irrigation or other non-potable purposes. Treating and reusing wastewater can help reduce the demand for freshwater resources.
Meeting regulatory requirements: Many countries have regulations that require wastewater to be treated before it is discharged into the environment. Compliance with these regulations is necessary to avoid fines and other penalties.
Overall, treating wastewater is essential for protecting public health, preserving the environment, conserving water resources, and meeting regulatory requirements.
