Industrial waste is the unusable by-product of industrial activity in factories, mills, and mining operations.
Some examples include paper products, chemical solvents, paints, metals and radioactive waste.
Industrial wastewater treatment is used to contain and treat waters that have been contaminated by anthropogenic industrial or commercial activities prior to it being released into the environment or re-used. Industrial waste treatment often requires detention systems that include one or more basins, or ponds designed to receive, hold and treat wastewater for a predetermined length of time.
Synthetex’s HYDROTEX® fabric-formed concrete mattresses prevent erosion of the detention pond’s banks from wind-generated waves and the growth of long grass and weeds that block wind and provide breeding areas for flies, mosquitoes and other insects.
Municipal wastewater treatment plants can also extract similar benefits from using HYDROTEX to protect these vulnerable areas.
