Waste Water
To ensure the water does no harm to people or the environment when it is released, waste water must be treated to reduce the level of contaminants to acceptable levels.
Other Applications
In addition to their role as inorganic coagulants, aluminium and iron salts are used in many other applications.
Industrial Uses
For industry, coagulants provide a method of reusing water in a cost-effective way that does not comprise the industrial process.
Drinking Water
In order to protect our health, all drinking water must be cleared of pathogens and impurities before it is used.
Paper Industry
Inorganic coagulants are used in two critical parts of the paper production process: sizing and retention.


What quantity of coagulant is required to provide clean water for a typical European?

The average European uses approximately 150 litres of water per day which equates to almost 55,000 litres per year. To treat this amount of waste water requires approximately 1.1 kilograms of inorganic coagulant per annum.
