Ready-Mix Concrete Wastewater Recycling

Worried about the environmental impact of your ready-mix concrete wash water? Emvees has the answer. Traditional wash water, high in alkalinity and chromium, poses a threat. Emvees’ innovative recycling systems remove harmful chromium, transforming the water into a clean, reusable resource. Our expertise makes Emvees a leader in sustainable solutions for the ready-mix concrete industry. Contact us today and be part of the solution!

Need for Wastewater Treatment in Ready-Mix Concrete Production

Ready-mix concrete production relies heavily on water, generating significant volumes of wastewater during mixing and equipment cleaning. A single concrete truck drum cleaning can consume a staggering 150-300 gallons, translating to a daily wastewater output of 3,000-5,000 gallons per plant. With thousands of such plants operating globally, the sheer volume of wastewater poses a serious environmental threat.

The Problem: Highly Polluted Wastewater

The primary concern lies in the wastewater’s extreme alkalinity, often exceeding a pH of 12 due to concrete processing and runoff. This high pH level categorizes the wastewater as potentially hazardous. Further compounding the issue, the water contains sand, stone, and other aggregate materials that require removal. Additionally, the presence of potentially harmful chemicals and toxic metals significantly elevates the wastewater’s overall toxicity.

The Solution: Ready-Mix Concrete Wastewater Recycling Systems

These alarming issues highlight the urgent need for effective wastewater treatment solutions in the ready-mix concrete industry. Implementing ready-mix concrete wastewater recycling systems offers a viable solution to tackle this environmental challenge. These systems can effectively neutralize the high alkalinity, remove harmful contaminants, and potentially even allow for the treated water to be reused. By adopting such systems, the ready-mix concrete industry can significantly reduce its environmental footprint and operate in a more sustainable manner.

Emvees: Tailored Solutions for Ready-Mix Concrete Wastewater Treatment

Emvees recognizes the unique challenges associated with ready-mix concrete wastewater and offers a comprehensive approach to address them. We understand that client needs can vary, and therefore, we provide a selection of treatment strategies to achieve optimal results.

Our Treatment Options:

  • Advanced Microfiltration (AFM): This highly effective filtration technology removes suspended solids and aggregates, including sand and stone particles, from the wastewater. AFM membranes offer a reliable and efficient solution for achieving a cleaner effluent.
  • Ultrafiltration (UF): For projects requiring a higher level of purification, Emvees incorporates Ultrafiltration. UF membranes are capable of removing not only suspended solids but also larger molecules and bacteria, resulting in a further refined wastewater stream.
  • Reverse Osmosis (RO) Plant: In instances where the ultimate goal is water reuse, Emvees integrates Reverse Osmosis technology. RO membranes act as a barrier, allowing only purified water molecules to pass through, resulting in high-quality treated water suitable for potential reuse in specific applications.

Client-Centric Approach:

Emvees understands that a one-size-fits-all solution may not be optimal for every project. During consultations, we carefully assess your specific wastewater characteristics and treatment goals. Based on this evaluation, we recommend the most suitable combination of technologies from our portfolio – AFM, UF, or RO – to deliver the desired level of treatment and water quality.

Benefits of Emvees' Wastewater Treatment Solutions:

  • Effective removal of contaminants: Our solutions address the high alkalinity, suspended solids, and harmful elements present in ready-mix concrete wastewater.
