Water and wastewater

Water plays a very important role in the industry. It is a versatile liquid with many properties, which allow it to perform different functions in numerous industries. The industrial sector usually uses large amounts of water for its processes, from cleaning tasks to the transport of goods. Among the main applications of the industrial use of water are thermoelectric plants, manufacturing plants, mineral and oil refineries. and hydroelectric dams.

In some highly developed countries, industry can account for up to 80% of total water extraction. For example, industry uses almost 40% of the total water needs in the US and between 6 and 80% of this water use is for cooling.

Wastewater represents any type of water whose quality has been negatively affected by anthropogenic influence (human activities). Residual waters include used, urban, domestic waters and the liquid industrial or mining residues removed, or the waters that were mixed with pluvial or natural waters. Due to its importance, wastewater requires canalization, treatment and removal systems. A null or improper treatment generates serious contamination problems.

Urban wastewater is normally managed through a sanitation network and is treated in wastewater treatment plants for purification before discharge.
