Meet strict regulations and promote environmental stewardship by removing heavy metals from wastewater streams

Industrial processes can release heavy metals into their wastewater streams, resulting in potential contamination of the environment. Therefore, regulating agencies require heavy metal removal from wastewater before it can be discharged into nature. GE offers innovative processes and proven methods to solve this tough-to-treat wastewater challenge.

What this means for you:

    • Meet regulatory requirements on wastewater effluent limits
    • Drive compliance to your company’s environmental stewardship goals
    • Remove heavy metals from wastewater over a wide pH range
    • Use chemical solutions for soluble and/or particulate heavy metals, such as lead, copper, chromium, iron, manganese, mercury, nickel and zinc
    • Remove selenium with advanced biological treatment

Meet regulations and ensure quality with accurate TOC monitoring

By using GE’s analytical instruments, customers can measure total organic carbon (TOC) in their water to ensure regulatory compliance, optimize processes, and control quality. Simple, fast, accurate monitoring helps you monitor water quality for pharmaceutical, microelectronics, municipal drinking water, power, industrial process, chemical, food and beverage, environmental, and wastewater.

What this means for you:

    • General water system monitoring
    • Global pharmacopoeias compliance
    • Cleaning verification
    • Process optimization
    • Ultra-pure and reclaim water monitoring
    • Environmental monitoring and TOC to COD/BOD correlation
    • Leak monitoring
    • TOC measuring for tough samples
    • Detection of contaminated water for chemical operations
    • Leakwise oil-on-water monitor for hydrocarbon leaks & spills
