Industrial Effluent Treatment Plants

Meeting environmental legislation

Meeting environmental legislation on industrial effluent discharge is a challenge for a wide range of industrial manufacturing companies. Pollution incidents can damage corporate reputations and incur costly penalties. WPL provide a complete industrial effluent treatment solution for companies seeking to meet compliance standards and reduce costs determined by the Mogden Formula for charges for trade effluent.

WPL’s industrial effluent treatment plants are designed according to the requirements of individual industrial sites. Starting with a site survey to establish the exact specification of a given application and to determine the type of industrial effluent treatment plant required, WPL work closely with our clients to ensure that projects are delivered on time and on budget.

WPL’s effluent treatment systems can produce final effluent qualities that meet UK Environment Agency and World Health Organisation standards. Wastewater can be treated to meet standards for reuse.

Along with a comprehensive design and installation service, WPL also offer finance packages to meet clients’ budgetary requirements. Our industrial effluent plants are available on a range of hire and permanent options. Operational support and ongoing servicing of your effluent treatment plant is also available.
