Oily Water Treatment

The presence of free, dissolved and emulsified oils can cause significant impact to the environment if they are not removed prior to wastewater discharge. Poor oil removal from raw wastewater can also have significant detrimental impact on subsequent treatment technologies such as biological treatment, membranes or de-ionization equipment.
