Industrial waste water treatment
In Petrol in addition to urban wastewater treatment plants, we also operate industrial wastewater treatment plants. For many years we have been managing an industrial wastewater treatment plant Papirnica Vevče and since the beginning of 2016, we also manage an industrial wastewater treatment plant in Paloma.
Industrial waste water is produced mainly after use in industry, craft or economic or agricultural activity similar to craft. It can contain substances that are biodegradable with more difficulty and non-biodegradable substances that need to be removed before returning them to the environment. Ever stricter requirements are being put in place for the treatment of industrial waste water. Whether it is a matter of new legal requirements or changes dictated by the plant, we always follow the concepts and techniques of procedures that ensure as much flexibility as possible for the purification plants.
In 2018, 1.8 million m3 of industrial wastewater was treated. In the Štore industrial complex we purified and reused purified industrial water in the amount of 18.4 million m3.
