Industrial washwater management

Industrial washwater is the contaminated liquid by-product from cleaning operations that contain chemical or hydrocarbon residues such as paint, powder, leachate and resin. Washwater is produced in operations such as textile cleaning and processing, industrial machinery cleaning and cooling towers. To prevent any negative impact on the environment, industrial washwater must be treated and decontaminated in accordance with regulations before it can be safely disposed of.

Cleanaway has the ability to collect and process all types of industrial washwater. Backed by our fleet of specialised collection vehicles, we can process large volumes of industrial washwater at our fully-licensed treatment facilities. Our EPA-compliant services ensure your industrial washwater is safely decontaminated according to industry standards.

Industrial washwater treatment and disposal

To treat washwater for disposal we mix additives to balance the pH levels of the liquid waste. The washwater is then passed through a filtering process to decontaminate the water. Once treated, both solids and liquids are safely disposed of.
