The need for wastewater treatment in the vehicle wash industry is immediate, since vehicle wash effluents pollute waterways and groundwater. Scientifically proven and advanced water treatment technologies allow car service centers to reuse water for pre-washing, which saves water resources. Waste water is treated differently, depending upon the source and contamination.
Effluents leaving the vehicle wash, in addition to its chemical composition, are accompanied by dirt particles, organic matter, non-emulsified hydrocarbons, detergents, settleable materials, and oil residues. The essential requirement in vehicle wash is to rid the wash water of all these contaminants, mainly with physicochemical treatment. The membrane treatment is also available for this type of waste water treatment.
