What is effluent polishing
Effluent polishing is a process to improve the quality of effluent produced by a sewage treatment system. The produces a purity of effluent normally accepted by the Environment Agency for direct discharge into the environment, including the sea, rivers, lakes, etc.
Effluent polishing is normally the third stage ion sewage treatment, after treatment in a two-stage process such as a septic tank or private sewage treatment plant. Final effluent polishing units are designed to remove any remaining suspended solids in the effluent by passing it through granular filters, known as polishing filters.
Issues may arise in a two-chamber system where activated sludge is used. In some cases, the sludge may be too light, resulting in too much suspended solids remaining in the effluent. An effluent polishing unit removes these solids, creating a higher quality effluent.
