Pollution Prevention Strategies
Treating industrial effluents to meet current regulations can be extremely costly. In addition the risk of periodically or occasionally exceeding regulatory thresholds can add to the cost of doing business. On occasion these costs can be high and come associated with media and public scrutiny.
Pollution prevention approaches reduce the cost of treating and disposing of contaminants in wastewater by identifying the source of the pollutants and either modifying process or replacing products used upstream. Novus works with clients to help identify the cause of effluent toxicity or other violations. Once identified, recommendations can be made that may provide significant savings as well as reduce risk and liabilities.
