Trade effluent monitoring

Industrial water auditing and trade effluent monitoring help processing and manufacturing businesses stay compliant and save money!

Trade effluent monitoring: Are you disposing of large volumes of waste water to rivers, sewers or other water channels?  Detectronic can help you provide ACCURATE INFORMATION to address your site’s trade effluent monitoring and waste water disposal policies and procedures. Accurately measuring and understanding the volumes of water leaving your site – and knowing where it goes – will ensure that you remain compliant and could save you money.

This data can also be used as supporting evidence for IPPC Permit submissions for sites regulated by the Environment Agency.
